Stephen Gately of the Irish boy band Boyzone was found dead yesterday while on vacation in Majorca, Spain with his husband Andrew Cowles. Stephen was only 33.
There aren’t many details about Stephen’s death since the police are still conducting an investigation. The police said there were no signs of violence. One of Stephen’s told The News of the World (I know) that he went out for a few drinks, came back to his house, fell asleep and never woke up.
The members of Boyzone are now on their way to Spain. The group’s Louis Walsh said this:
“We’re all absolutely devastated. I’m in complete shock. I was only with him on Monday at an awards ceremony. We don’t know much about what’s happened yet. I only heard after The X Factor and we will rally around each other this week. He was a great man.”
Stephen, who was working on his first children’s novel at the time of his death, is survived by his husband Andrew.
