Jason Savio Watkins passed away at his residence in Mumbai’s Yamuna Nagar in Andheri (west). The police confirmed that the 48-year-old hanged himself but no suicide note was found. His family members, including his 74-year-old step father and sister, reportedly told the police that he was suffering from depression for the last three years after his mother Daina passed away.
As per preliminary investigations, of late, Watkins was not keeping well and had some health-related issues which may have triggered him to take the extreme step. The police said prima-facie there seems to be no foul play.
