Jimmy Savile: After 10 Months Of Waiting For His Trial David Smith Is Dead

Screen shot 2013-10-29 at 06.39.27 WHAT do we make of the death of David Smith? He was Jimmy Savile’s chauffeur. Not his only one. Just one of them. Mr Smith’s other claim to fame is that his was the honour of being the first person charged with sexual offences as part of Operation Yewtree. He was arrested in December 2012.

But he never will get his trial. Back in July he pleased not guilty to two counts of indecent assault and two of gross indecency on a child. Yesterday, he was due to appear at Southwark Crown Court. But he never left his home in Effingham Road, Lewisham.

“At approximately 14:20 officers entered the address and found the body of a man. A FME (forensic medical examiner) attended and pronounced the man dead at the scene. Next of kin are being informed.”

Those are the facts.
