I was shocked when I saw the news. Too young, too successful. Such a shame. I remember friends 'being him' in the playground when I was about 10 years old. Premier League Legend.

I keep seeing interviews with people who spoke to him the day before, who said he sounded completely fine and was even joking around with them. Really scary.

Gary Speed was one of four men who were coached by Barry Bennell who have since committed suicide.  Too much of a coincidence?
Another case that demonstrates the harm that paedophiles create, especially when within a supposedly 'trusted' environment.
How many others that have been affected by him (and other paedophiles) have also committed suicide or are living with troubled minds following abuse?
If in any doubt, it is always better to ask the awkward questions and report your concerns. 
We all need to do what we can to protect our youngsters.
