You may remember the tragic deaths of BBC children’s presenters Natasha Collins and Mark Speight.
Mark and Natasha were engaged to be married.
Natasha apparently died after a cocaine and alcohol binge at her flat in St John’s Wood.
Mark Speight was initially arrested in connection with the death.
Mark Speight was devastated by the death of Natasha.
He said ” she was my soulmate, I’d never have done anything to harm her “.
After the coroner’s inquest, Mark Speight went missing for three days.
The media said he had ” vanished into thin air”.
His body later found in an isolated area of Paddington train station.
Mark Speight had apparently hanged himself.
That seemed to be the end of the story.
But maybe it wasn’t.
We now know there was a child-abuse ring operating at the BBC linked to Jimmy Savile.
We now know Rolf Harris has been arrested by officers from Operation Yewtree.
It transpires that Mark Speight had done a lot of work with Rolf Harris.
At Mark’s memorial, Rolf made an emotional and tearful address:
‘It was joyful to work with Mark.
‘I realise now that I never told him how much I appreciated his programmes.
‘You realise you should always tell people what you think, you should tell them you love them because it might suddenly be too late.’
Rolf sang Sun Arise, backed by a band complete with didgeridoos.
He also did his version of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.”
We now know that Mark Speight did volunteer work for Childline.
He was one of their spokesmen and a high-profile campaigner.
Some say Childline is a “front” organisation used to filter out callers who may have been abused by VIP’s.
Could Mark have been given information of a very sensitive nature?
As in the case of Jill Dando, could Mark have mistakenly passed the information into the wrong hands?
We don’t know.
But we do know this much.
There’s definitely something not quite right about the tragic and mysterious deaths of Natasha Collins and Mark Speight.
There’s something not quite right about the way the media portrayed them as drug addicts.
There’s something not quite right about Mark’s links to the BBC.
There’s something not quite right about Mark’s links to Childline.
There’s something not quite right about Mark’s links to Rolf Harris.
We don’t know what it is but something’s not quite right at all.
