Police investigating Stephen Gately’s death in Majorca believe the star choked on vomit following a reported eight-hour drinking binge. The Boyzone singer was found dead by Georgi Dochev, 25, who had early been partying with Gately and his partner Andy Cowles before they returned to Stephen’s vacation home.
“I am devastated,” Dochev told The Sun. “I came out of the bedroom and found Stephen dead. I woke the husband. It is awful – I am in shock and I’m ill with it. I haven’t slept a wink.”
Update: Gately’s family is denying he died after an 8 hour drinking binge.
