For those of you familiar with the Ace Hotel chain, creative hipster and hotelier, Alex Calderwood died under mysterious circumstances this past November in his London Ace. At the time, rampant rumors surrounded the death. Drug overdose? Suicide? Heart failure? Foul play? No stranger to rehab, Calderwood, like many creative types, struggled with demons.
None of this is shocking. Sad? Of course. But shocking, no – our society has lost one talented individual after another to this or that or the other. What is shocking is that to date, no additional information has been released about how Alex Caldwerwood passed. Everything has been very hushed up.
If he did die of a heart attack, then why wouldn’t it have been released? Or if Caldwerwood died of an unknown malady, wouldn’t loved ones want it investigated? I mean, the man was only 47 years old. So then I’m wondering, was there a letter? Or a popcorn tub full of needles and pills that someone put a lid on quickly? And if, so how?
Someone has got to know and that somebody is doing a bang-up job of covering it all up. I can’t find a single news article informing of the details. Radio silence since November 2013. It’s not just impressive, but odd in this day and age. Makes me think – what are we all missing that is so secret it had to be covered up like a second shooter on a grassy knoll?
Alex Calderwood…I’m still thinking about you and wondering.
