Christopher Hyndman, co-host of CBC’s Steven and Chris, dead

Toronto police told CBC News on Tuesday that Hyndman was found without vital signs in an alleyway near the intersection of Queen Street and Broadview Avenue in Toronto shortly after 11 p.m. ET Monday.

Det. Terry Wray said police are not appealing for witnesses, though it remains a “completely open investigation.” He added that police would not comment further until completing interviews. h/t DM

  • Speaksvolumes

    Drug OD or murdered.

    • I suspect the former, the cops seem to want this one to remain “unsolved”

      • Speaksvolumes

        Yep. I wonder if he and Smitherman’s partner ran in the same circles.

        Life is just not fair.
        I wasn’t born a leftist so I can’t make any jokes or disparage him.
        Actually, I never had any bad wishes for him.
        I only ever asked myself, ‘is he really thaat gay?’

      • lolwut?

        Probably too much party with his play.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Too fat for meth.

          • lolwut?

            Not true, it’s how you treat yourself while doing drugs.

            Weight loss from drug use is from not eating and spending most of your time running around blowing calories chasing money for dope.

            If you eat and take care of yourself other then the drug use you can last for years, decades looking pretty normal, especially if the meth use is infrequent.

            People who are naturally heavyset will also appear normal weight with drug use and smaller appetite.

            There are tons of junkie girls here in Vancouver who get Victory secret bodies when doing crack and heroin and eating very little
            and then blow up like balloons to their natural weight when they are clean.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Well, he always looked like he had veneers.

          • lolwut?

            You can hide drug use very well when you can afford it and have great hygiene.

            A lot of issues are also related to the quality of the drugs you are using, street level heroin and crack causes abscesses and clots that cause swelling and that kind of thing because it’s cut with all kinds of shit you find under a kitchen sink.

            The Meth users you see in pictures and video falling apart to Walking dead levels are usually broke, unemployed and just all round not in any position to maintain themselves AND support a habit,.

            My tired eyes thought you said ‘bad weiners’.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’ll raise my beer can to you my frond.
            And dink to you.
            I’d rather have bad wieners than bad medicine.
            I fucking hate bon jovi.
            Off topic I know.

          • lolwut?
    • LizM

      Or suicide.

      • You people are so mean. It was obviously because he escaped from one of the 10,000 secret concentration camps for Gays hat Canada has maintained for the past two hundred years and has hidden from the public. He could barely survive. I hold Stephen Harper personally responsible. Thomas Mulcair risked his life to try to help him.

    ‘Steven Sabados, Hyndman’s life partner and television co-host, met Hyndman in 1988 while arguing about feminism.’
    Found this on the Inquisitr.
    Couldn’t resist, sorry.

  • canminuteman

    Never heard of him.

    My wife told me the gay guy on daytime tv is dead. I had to say which one, because all the guys on daytime tv are gay. I think its a job requirement, especially with the CBC.

      I work for a Charity at one point and the head of it had a gay son , but for some reason I noticed that almost all the Managers for various fund -raising wings were gay .

      its true every CBC job announcement states that white straight males will not be considered. only gays or “interesting “ethnics are encouraged. how else do you suppose a block of faggoty tofu like rick mercer got a job as a comic yet ? ghomeshi snuck in on the brown man card and might even have fibbed about the gay requirement,

        Rick Mercer got his job as part of Newfoundland joining Confederation.

    When gays die prematurely its so much more tragic than a regular premature death. Kind of like the death of a lion is more tragic than the death of a cow.

      When Smitherman’s spouse ran away from him which some people might think was from abuse , the Police dragged him back to Furious George which ended up pushing him to suicide just 2 months later right after Christmas.
      The media and Police suddenly went silent on what actually happened and they said they respected George’s privacy during this time of a tragic event.

      Oh really, so when Rob Ford was exposed by the CUPE member for a 9-1-1 call to his on based on the Alleged domestic abuse, the media took it as a factual assault on his wife and it became a News story and talking point by Liberal progressives on the Radio .
      No charges , plus the Police were not quick to let her return home thanks to the feminazi’s .

      Michael Bryant was a drunk on the job and had killed someone with his car, in that case the CBC and STAR painted him as the victim of an addiction as if he needed pity and not scorn as the Attr general .

      Can you see the pattern here , Justin and Smitherman admit to using illegals drugs and buying them from drug dealers. Yet the Police or RCMP do squat about this admission while we see how the Liberal Leftists and Police get obsessed with finding a way to Arrest and Charge Rob Ford for illegal drug use when it was just an allegation.

      • No question, it is a sinister double standard. I have never witnessed any other missing person receive the amount of resources devoted to finding Smitherman’s boy friend.

        This is pretty much the same, a Gay drug OD.

    • ntt1

      we can only hope it was a fabu death.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    I always liked him even if I found the minutiae of interior design totally meaningless to any stage of my life.
    Twenties meant no money no design.
    Thirties meant kids and no design.
    Still waiting.

    Will the appeal for witnesses extend to the (..say…) 1000+ other gay men who no doubt partied with the deceased in a variety of clubs, bars and/or bathhouses (where he would have bought the drugs) that more than likely contributed to his death over this past weekend?
