Here's one worthy of the Pattaya One News records of terrible balcony malfunctions:  James Le Mesurier, founder of Syrian White Helmets group, apparently flings himself to death in the middle of the night off the balcony of his Istanbul home, after being diagnosed with... high blood pressure.   Ex-Sandhurst, British Army, mercenary and significant irritant to Assad and the Syrians, accused of association with jihadist groups through White Helmets... meets what is now being called a suicide by the Turks, no reason to suspect otherwise.  At least the Pattaya news sources are always diligent and report the floor number from which the poor gentlemen fell/jumped/were pushed, not so in this case.



Ah, the ledge ascertained and photographed: not quite the height one would expect as a choice for suicide, I must say.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7680285/Ledge-James-Le-Mesurier-fell-death-seen-time.html

Terry Jones: Monty Python star dies aged 77

Monty Python star Terry Jones has died at the age of 77, after having lived with dementia, his agent has said.

A statement from his family said: "We have all lost a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man."

Fellow Python Sir Michael Palin described Jones as "one of the funniest writer-performers of his generation".

John Cleese said: "It feels strange that a man of so many talents and such endless enthusiasm, should have faded so gently away..."

He added: "Of his many achievements, for me the greatest gift he gave us all was his direction of Life of Brian. Perfection."
