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.”

  • Wakefield fishcake

    A man walked into a fish and chip shop in Wakefield with a salmon under his arm

    “Do you serve fishcakes?” he asked

    Owner “Yes!”

    “Great! It’s the salmon’s birthday” replied the man

    (interview from 2006), megalolz, especially bit where he gets asked if he could never be a drug addict… Oh Ian if you could have just had a crystal ball back then, so much could have been avoided

    • Your right there

      i bet he wished he could see into the future and see all the devastation he would cause to his family, the band and the abuse he would cause to those two little innocents and of cause the loss of his freedom, fame and to his health. he said he would never be take drugs to his mam, brother and sister when they went to america and after his 30th birthday he returned one. for a intelligent person he behaved like a dick but he isnt the first and he certainly wont be the last. if only fate had taken a different path for him .

  • I MAKE DIRTY LOVE

            • Mr Watkins

              I have all the guards wrapped round my little finger( +and my fist ;) ) … they have fallen for the Watkins charm ….I got a play station and a few other treats, booooooshhhhh

            • hes not allowed

              access to the internet. tv until 8pm when lights go out. only people like jeremy bamber are allowed supervised use of the internet as he pleaded not guilty and is appealing his sentence in light of new evidence so he has access and to law books etc.

              • Mr Watkins

                I look forward to 8pm lights out, when me any my roomi get down and DIRTY!

              • Why

                are lights put out at 8pm? , that’s way to early . so are they actually in darkness from 8pm every night? …ffk sake

                • It depends

                  when the sun sets, I guess! lol

                  • so in winter

                    they’re all lying in the dark at 8pm. no sounds/tv/music… bloody hell,,,, can’t imagine Ian Watkins in there, in the way that I could imagine the likes of Ian Huntley, Roy Whiting etc..

                  • yes all season

                    it,s lights out in all the uk nicks at 8pm. doesnt matter what category jail it is they treat em all the same.they are left with they,re own thoughts and memories, nothing else and of course the longer the mind has to wander the longer it hits you how long you have lost your freedom for. look at charles bronson, he went insane and even the prison screws admit thy are scared shitless of him. no-one in hmp frankland would dare evn give him a funny look as he is so strong that he lay on his back while a screw dropped a medicine ball onto his stomach and he didnt even flinch and yet he is well mannered and polit around women, i.e his shrink and of course his ma. come to think of it what is it with these crims who love they,re mams, i,e ian?

                  • he'll have lots of memories

                    they must play in his head like a dvd every night, shudder to think, what’s re-playing in his mind

                • IAN WATKINS

                  yep it,s 8pm for all us crims, baby rapists. merv the pervs and child killers, we are all treated the same. it,s because they are supposed to be being punished and after 9pm the violent/ sexual crap is on tv. maybe the guvnor thinks watching all the shite we have to tolerate will make them even more filthy and violent. just let them look at pictures of anne widdecombe and that would put them off sex for life or better still make them watch eastenders shite that will send them over the edge for sure.

                  • Your right there

                    he will relive him going to each differnt country, memories of him at home with his family. him spending time with leesas 3 eldest kids, road trips he used to take with his family , his exes (the ones he cared about). his dad and of course ponty and the surrounding valleys he used to drive around and the worse on being that he has another 17yrs to serve before he ever sees freedom again. i cant imagine what it must be watching the changing seasons from the tiny cell window and imagining what everyone else is doing when it,s christmas, new year etc. knowing your loved ones are just over a hr away, so near and yet so far.

                  • feeling of

                    total dispare, have no idea how he’s going to get through this after the life he’s had,,, his poor mum must be thinking exact same,, shocking way to end up especially as he was always going on about don’t leave things to fate, your in charge of your life and you cane be something… was his mantra… then he turns into this,,,,fuck

        • JoHo
