Death in Knox St Watson

johnboy 19 August 2008 47

Word reaches us that there’s been a suspicious death on Knox Street in Watson.

Large police presence in attendance.

More to come on this we imagine.

UPDATED: Apparently it’s the flats near the Antill end of Knox St, a middle aged man found dead in a large pool of blood near the bins.

@ fnnah: Touche.

@ ant: My mother’s maiden name was Groanworthy. I come from a long line of Groanworthys, originally from the Midlands, UK.

Isn’t a Litter to the Editor something you write to the NZ Herald?

Will the wheelie bins that have been wrongly accused be coming to Riot ACT and plastering badly spelt graffiti everywhere in retaliation against Johnboy’s claims?

I was going to say they prefer a Litter to the Editor, but I decided against it.

OK, Overheard! That’s groan-worthy. You are banished to the Offal Thread!

Meanwhile, I do hope the bins and their friends and relatives come and abuse us in mis-spelled mono-syllables. Highly entertaining.

Still waiting to hear about this ‘good source’, and who really had ‘the clue’

Look at all you lot posturing at each other. It’s like an episode of Dragonball Z. “Ha Ha, my source is better than your source, therefore I win and kick your butt. Ha Ha”

DJ was murdered – the AFP smiper shot him from the grassy knoll.

Not one of the AFPs highly trained and deadly smipers?

Knowing that it is stiring the pot a little, JB, just what were you told exactly?

Not easy to get a good sauce or source these days!

There’s something very sad and undignified about dying young and alone among a pile of wheelie bins in Knox St. I wonder if anyone is grieving him. I do hope that somebody cared.

People, this is what happens when uncaring sods put compact flouro light bulbs into rubbish bins – the mercury leachs out and kills innocent bystanders!

At least this is what my sauces have told me.

Hang on a sec. JB had it from a ‘good source’. A suspicious death in Watson.

Now the CT say the Police aren’t treating it as suspicious.

Someone doesn’t have a clue……who would that be?

Someone may need to re-assess the value of the word ‘good’ in ‘good source’

(Cue Twilight Zone Music)

Or maybe it’s another one of those AFP cover ups – just like the murder of DJ????

Why all the deaths in and around the Canberra area in the past few days? Is there a weather related factor? Mayhap an astrological explanation?

there has been a full moon. every time a full moon, the crazies come out in broad daylight, instead of at night.

You need to pay extra for humbuggery.
But no costumes or kissing.

Sounds like he may have been kidnapped by aliens and they scooped out his brain.

The Canberra Times has the story, under the heading “Man’s body found”.

“Police discovered the body of a young man on Knox Street in Watson yesterday afternoon. The death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage and a report is being prepared for the coroner”

That’s the whole story as published.

Sounds like a drug overdose.
