Celebrity Big Brother’s Heavy D found dead; family reacts

Heavy D passed away at the age of 43 after going missing for a fortnight. He was found dead this week after his neighbours suspected that he died of a heart attack.

Heavy D, real name Colin Newell, was reportedly found dead on the kitchen floor by his brother. Lorna Onabanjo, who lives near Colin’s home in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, told Mail Online about his disappearance a fortnight ago: “I did my best to raise his spirits but then he went home and no one ever heard of him again.”

Onabanjo also said that she last saw the “Celebrity Big Brother” alum on November 14, and was worried as he seemed down, and then she was contacted by Colin’s family who informed her of his death.
