I realize this is a bit morbid and disrespectful of the dead but his death never sat right with me, the reporting on it at the time was quite vague and still now no one really knows what happened

You had a few whispers that either he was gay and it was about to come out in the press or that his wife had cheated on him and his child wasn't his but i never bought that


Even googling about there is very little even in the way of rumors, it's something that's always bothered me

But what i have noticed was the Crew/Bennell/Gradi connection

He slept at his house as a boy and his father swears Gary was to cute to let anything like that ever happen but then that's understandable he wouldn't want to ever contemplate the idea that maybe something awful happened to him

Gradi from what i understand is well known to be a nonce from with in the game it's one of those open secrets but he's never actually been held to account and has seemingly got away scot free despite images being found on his computer

To me this screams of Crewe basically being a pedo ring disguised as a football club with Gradi acting as the overseer and has seemingly been protected

All of the Ex pro's who came out to speak were failed players so as sensational as the story was at the time there is still an element of lack of credibility - Speed on the other hand could have done a lot of damage because of his standing

If Gradi was the Saville in the operation then Some one high profile naming him could have led to the house of cards collapsing


I could be way out here but there are definitely dot's there to be connected

There was an element of Lady Diana to Speed in the way he carried himself he was very graceful and a class act so if he did meet foul play then who ever did it has got away with it and that bothers me

Long post bit of a downer i know apologies but wondered if i am on my own with this one
