More tragic news form the family of the actor of beloved children's show, The Teletubbies, as the circumstances of his death were revealed.
Simon Shelton Barnes, who famously played one of the four colorful characters on the hit children's TV show, was recently found dead in suspicious circumstances early this week.
Barnes was notable for playing Tinky Winky, the purple Teletubby that so many kids grew up watching.
His family were devastated when they found out about his passing, especially since he had turned 52-years-old only 4 days earlier.
The father of three received an outpouring of tributes, from fans and fellow cast members alike, but it was the heartbroken messages from his family that really hit close to home.
“I always used to be embarrassed as a child that he was a dancer and an actor but now I couldn’t be more proud!" said his son, Henry. "He is in a better place now and I know he wouldn’t want me to be sad, so I’m going to live my life the way he would want me to.”
While the grieving process has begun for the family, police are still investigating the mysterious nature in which Barnes had died.
It isn't the way anyone would want to go.
