British radio presenter Gavin Ford found dead
Gavin Ford, a British radio presenter who has been at Radio One in Lebanon for the last 20 years, has died.
The Sun reports that the Breakfast show host was murdered in his apartment and his car was stolen.
His body was found on Tuesday morning at his address in the town of Beit Mery, just outside Beirut.
An initial investigation into Ford’s death noted his hands were bound behind his back and he had been strangled using a piece of cloth.
The station posted the sad news on its Facebook page today, saying: “We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our dear Gavin Ford, a member of our team for many joyful years. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and colleagues all over the world.”
“Rest In Peace Gavin.”
His colleagues raised the alarm after Gavin didn’t show up for his Breakfast show on Monday morning.
