IN “STEPHEN’S LAST HOURS”, the Sun continues the focuses on Stephen Gately, the Boyzone singer who yesterday was “Gately used dope” and is now “Stephen”.

He has been Stephen in the Sun before, notably when he was “Stephen killed by 8hr binge

And he was Stephen when he was:

“I FOUND STEPHEN PALE AND COLD.”

Having established a rapport with the remains of Stephen Gately, in which he is Gately when there is talk of drugs and Stephen when he is being laid to rest, the Sun now re-introduces Bulgarian student Georgi Dochev, the 25-year-old who found the singer’s body.

THE “third man” who befriended STEPHEN GATELY and his partner on the night the BOYZONE star died saw his body the following day – but thought he was just sleeping and walked away.

The third man..? The mystery is turning into a thriller. Man dies from natural causes and the tabloids write their own plot.

Boyzone Give Stephen Gately A Dignity The Media Cannot Handle

home-keySTEPHEN Gately is not long dead. The Daily Mail has led the tabloids’ charge to bury him not praise him, peppering a report of the former Boyzone singers early demise with suicide, drugs, depression, domestic violence and his sexuality.

Today the post-mortem will discover if Gately died from being gay, Irish, or whatever else pushed him to the margins of what Mail readers would term ‘decent society’.

Police in Majorca says there were “no signs of suspicious circumstances”.

Which brings us to the Sun’s front-page headline:

“I FOUND STEPHEN PALE AND COLD.”

Well, he can’t get on with everybody, nor be orangey-brown as the Simon Cowell pop factory paints its uniform acts.

It’s turns out that a Georgi Dochev says Gately was pale and cold when he had died. The singer was “very cold and white“.

As front page shockers go, news that a dead body was cold is right up with news that Katie Price sleeps on her back, the Pope has a balcony and the BNP is not keen on immigrants.

But here’s Dochev to deliver his “I was there” moment:

“I almost have not slept since this happened. I found Stephen dead and I woke his husband. I am still nervous and really upset.”

He tells the Sun. As for the background story:

Mr Dochev is believed to have accompanied Gately and his partner, Andrew Cowles, back to the apartment in the resort of Port Andratx in the early hours of Saturday. He confirmed he had spoken to police who are investigating the death.

The tabloids chip away. But there appears to be a quiet dignity surrounding Gately’s death. His former Boyzone bandmates Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch flew out to the scene to pay their respects.

A spokesman tells us:

“All the boys are home now. They went there to pay their respects and start dealing with the fall-out of the situation. However, it’s clear that them being there at the moment is bringing a lot more attention to the situation.”

So they left. They did not announce a comeback your, call for an urgent investigation, speculate on Gately’s state of mind, talk to the media nor grandstand and make themselves the centre of attention. They came. They saw. They left.

It’s more than the media can handle…
