Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison found dead
Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison has been found dead. The 36-year-old musician went missing in the early hours of Wednesday morning (May 9) after leaving a hotel in South Queensferry (Scotland), earlier this week, when he left a cryptic message on his Twitter saying “I’m away now. Thanks.”
The previous message was “Be so good to everyone you love. It’s not a given. I’m so annoyed that it’s not. I didn’t live by that standard and it kills me. Please, hug your loved ones.”
Police said that they had found a body Thursday evening (May 10) at a port near where he was last seen, and confirmed to the Daily News a few hours ago that the body was Hutchison’s.
No cause of death was given, though his family referenced his struggle with depression in a statement. So our only lead seems to be death by suicide.
Also his bandmates, when they said he was missing, added he “may be in a fragile state and may not be making the best decisions for himself.“
