Worcestershire, England – Fans mourn the loss of former Lostprophets singer Ian David Karslake Watkins, who committed suicide early Wednesday morning in his cell at HM Prison Long Lartin.

Watkins was pronounced dead at 4:38 a.m. UTC. Cause of death was listed as “self asphyxiation, or suicide by hanging.” He was 36.

Watkins is survived by step-father and Baptist minister John Davies, his mother Elaine, and Daniel, his 24-year-old brother who distanced himself from Ian in the final months of the singer’s life. He is also survived by former Lostprophets musicians Lee Gaze, Mike Lewis, Stuart Richardson, Jamie Olider and Luke Johnson.

Inside reports suggest Watkins was facing pressure in the form of death threats from other inmates. Watkins was overheard remarking that he feared for his life.

Because no will was entered into the public record, Watkins’ continuing charitable contributions to the Kidney Wales Foundation for Children will cease.

The Watkins estate is to be turned over instead to the UK for disbursement into public works projects, as is customary in Wales when a convicted pedophile with enormous assets dies without a notorized will.

Watkins suffered in the wake of numerous convictions on sexual assault charges against children, for which he was sentenced to prison for 29 years last December. Authorities got involved when the Lostprophets frontman made plans to rape adoring fans and their babies. Prosecutors uncovered “the most shocking and harrowing child abuse the nation has ever seen.”

Senior investigating officers on Watkins’ case described him as a “committed, organised paedophile.” The judge, Mr. Justice Royce, said Watkins “plunged into new depths of depravity” referring to Watkins’ text messages to his victims: “If you belong to me, so does your baby.”

After entering his guilty plea, Watkins referred to his sex offenses as being “mega lolz.”

  • Fighter

    After all you put me through
    You’d think I’d despise you
    But in the end I wanna thank you
    ‘Cause you made that much stronger

    Well I thought I knew you
    Thinking that you were true
    Guess I, I couldn’t trust called your bluff
    Time is up, ’cause I’ve had enough

    You were there by my side
    Always down for the ride
    But your joy ride just came down in flames
    ‘Cause your greed sold me out in shame, mmm hmm

    After all of the stealing and cheating
    You probably think that
    I hold resentment for you
    But uh uh, oh no, you’re wrong

    ‘Cause if it wasn’t for all
    That you tried to do
    I wouldn’t know just how capable I am to pull through
    So I wanna say thank you

    ‘Cause it
    Makes me that much stronger
    Makes me work a little bit harder
    Makes me that much wiser
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Made me learn a little bit faster
    Made my skin a little bit thicker
    Makes me that much smarter
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Never saw it coming
    All of your backstabbing
    Just so, you could cash in on a good thing
    Before I’d realized your game

    I heard you’re going ’round
    Playin’ the victim now
    But don’t even begin feelin’ I’m the one to blame
    ‘Cause you dug your own grave

    After all of the fights and the lies
    Guess you’re wanting to harm me
    But that won’t work anymore
    No more, uh uh, it’s over

    ‘Cause if it wasn’t for all of your torture
    I wouldn’t know how to be this way now
    And never back down
    So I wanna say thank you

    ‘Cause it
    Makes me that much stronger
    Makes me work a little bit harder
    Makes me that much wiser
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Made me learn a little bit faster
    Made my skin a little bit thicker
    Makes me that much smarter
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    How could this man I thought I know
    Turn out to be unjust so cruel?
    Could only see the good in you
    Pretended not to see the truth

    You tried to hide your lies
    Disguise yourself through
    Living in denial
    But in the end you’ll see
    You won’t stop me

    I am a fighter
    (I’m a fighter)
    I ain’t gonna stop
    (I ain’t gonna stop)
    There is no turning back
    I’ve had enough

    Makes me that much stronger
    Makes me work a little bit harder
    Makes me that much wiser
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Made me learn a little bit faster
    Made my skin a little bit thicker
    Makes me that much smarter
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Thought I would forget
    But I, I remember
    Yes I remember
    I’ll remember

    Thought I would forget
    But I remember
    Yes I remember
    I’ll remember

    Makes me that much stronger
    Makes me work a little bit harder
    Makes me that much wiser
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    Made me learn a little bit faster
    Made my skin a little bit thicker
    Makes me that much smarter
    So thanks for making me a fighter

    “The Winner Takes It All”

    I don’t wanna talk
    About things we’ve gone through
    Though it’s hurting me
    Now it’s history
    I’ve played all my cards
    And that’s what you’ve done too
    Nothing more to say
    No more ace to play

    The winner takes it all
    The loser’s standing small
    Beside the victory
    That’s her destiny

    I was in your arms
    Thinking I belonged there
    I figured it made sense
    Building me a fence
    Building me a home
    Thinking I’d be strong there
    But I was a fool
    Playing by the rules

    The gods may throw the dice
    Their minds as cold as ice
    And someone way down here
    Loses someone dear
    The winner takes it all
    The loser has to fall
    It’s simple and it’s plain
    Why should I complain?

    But tell me does she kiss
    Like I used to kiss you?
    Does it feel the same
    When she calls your name?
    Somewhere deep inside
    You must know I miss you
    But what can I say?
    Rules must be obeyed

    The judges will decide
    The likes of me abide
    Spectators of the show
    Always staying low
    The game is on again
    A lover or a friend
    A big thing or a small
    The winner takes it all

    I don’t wanna talk
    If it makes you feel sad
    And I understand
    You’ve come to shake my hand
    I apologize
    If it makes you feel bad
    Seeing me so tense
    No self-confidence
    But you see
    The winner takes it all
    The winner takes it all…

    “Stronger”

    Ooh hey, yeah

    Hush, just stop
    There’s nothing you can do or say, baby
    I’ve had enough
    I’m not your property as from today, baby
    You might think that I won’t make it on my own
    But now I’m…

    [Chorus:]
    Stronger than yesterday
    Now it’s nothing but my way
    My lonliness ain’t killing me no more
    I’m stronger

    That I ever thought that I could be, baby
    I used to go with the flow
    Didn’t really care ‘bout me
    You might think that I can’t take it, but you’re wrong
    ‘Cause now I’m…

    [CHORUS:]
    Stronger than yesterday
    Now it’s nothing but my way
    My lonliness ain’t killing me no more
    I’m stronger

    Come on, now
    Oh, yeah

    Here I go, on my own
    I don’t need nobody, better off alone
    Here I go, on my own now
    I don’t need nobody, not anybody
    Here I go, alright, here I go

    [Repeat CHORUS]

    Stronger than yesterday
    Now it’s nothing but my way
    My lonliness ain’t killing me no more
    I’m stronger
