Teen Writes Eerie Facebook Post Hours Before Being Found Dead On Train Tracks
A British teen foreshadowed his own fate on social media just a mere couple of hours before he was tragically found dead.
Lee Ridgeway, a 16-year-old from England's Greater Manchester area, posted this status on Facebook on Sunday night.
According to Daily Mail, Ridgeway was found dead three hours later on the tracks at Bramhall railway station, which is located less than 10 minutes away his school, Cheadle Hulme High.
In a statement released by Ridgeway's family, he was fondly remembered. It read,
Lee was a brilliant, kind, clever and popular person to all who knew him and will be greatly missed.
The 16-year-old's body was discovered early Monday, a bank holiday for the UK. His death came three days after he got the results of his GSCE, a nationally recognized exam that tests the aptitude of British students across many different subjects during their final years of high school.
Friends of Ridgeway posted tributes online to remember the teen. One friend, Tim Pygott, wrote,
RIP Lee. I met you on holiday and we had some mad times. It was only Friday we were planning to back and have round 2 and you were game for that. My thoughts are going to your family. I will miss you lots my bro, fly high up there.
The teen's death is being investigated by British Transit Police, according to Daily Mail.
