Heard that it was suicide due to having a a rather large debt.
Was informed that he had been caught on video recordings at the casino here in Canberra leading up to his death.
Correct he was recently married and had a baby on the way.

DND, and that’s why you never pay attention to the grapevine.

Sometimes things are exactly how they appear.

Poor man. I hope somebody is around to watch out for his wife and new little child. So terribly sad.

Don’t put too much faith in these rumours. This man had other major issues (one in particular) in his life, which I won’t comment on further.

Plenty of scuttlebutt and rumour doing the rounds in taxi circles. I have not heard any differing opinion other than what I’m about to write:

Taxi driver was recently married and wife pregnant. According to other taxi drivers he was extremely happy about it too.

Drivers last (uncompleted) job (before death) was a pick up off Kingston rank with Navy personal onboard. Taxi found unlocked and meter still running.

With the recent news surrounding racism against Indians, further rumour suggest that the reason the police are calling it a suicide is to prevent any further political fallout.

Draw your own conclusions.

People can make fun of me when I’m dead too, no problem – it’s a well sign posted two way street … and before anyoe says “yeah, but what about the family?”, I’ll say – thought of that to.

I think you’ll find that TAD knows a little more about the subject than you 😉

Not suspicious = police code for suicide

I think you’ll find that “Found dead in the shower” is the pilice code for suicide. “Not Suspicious” is the civilian one …

Maybe, just maybe, he had enough of living and working in Queanbehole! *runs*

106.3 news said that police don’t believe its suspicious.

Maybe the taxi driver just couldn’t hold it and got out to do a leak and fell down the hill into the water? Poor bloke.

LGB seems like a death trap these days.
