Nigerian schoolboy hangs himself in Robin Williams experiment gone 'horribly wrong'

An inquisitive schoolboy may have hanged himself in a “horrible mistake” after he experimented to see how Hollywood legend Robin Williams died, an inquest heard.

Temidayo Joseph, 16, died in his bedroom just hours after collecting his GCSE results. The talented footballer was found slumped in a seated position on the floor by his mum Kate with his school tie around his neck.


An inquest heard in the days leading up to his death the “lively and popular” youngster had spoken with a cousin and questioned why the famous actor would have wanted to end his life.

Essex Coroner Eleanor McGann said: “There was a conversation which took place about big news in the media about the death of Robin Williams.
“Temi had said ‘I don’t understand why somebody would do this to themself’.
“I do wonder if this bright, little boy... perhaps he was just experimenting to see how Robin Williams killed himself, but with no intention of doing it himself.

“We know it’s incredibly easy to hang yourself from a sitting position. “It’s perfectly possible that he did not have any idea how easy it is to hang yourself by mistake.

“That would seem to fit with this happy little boy with an enquiring mind who has made a horrible mistake.”

Detective Sergeant Tara Barnes told the inquest she had concluded her report into the death by saying: “I had no information that his intention was to kill himself.”

The inquest at Essex Coroner’s Court heard no suicide note was found and Temi’s family said he had been looking forward to enrolling at college.

Linda learn to distinguish between nationality and ethnicity. My friend called me to read this article. Temidayo is not Nigerian. He holds no Nigerian identity. His ethnicity is black African Nigerian. His nationality is British. Get that correct please. We are British people although of the same descent with you we are not Nigerian. We grow up in a different culture and we speak differently. We do not look down on our ancestry land but the fact is we are not Nigerian. I hope you post this for your libers to learn what nationality is. In university I meet Nigerians who when they hear my name shout 'you are Nigerian' No I am not. I first came to Nigeria when I was 18 for a funeral. I am British. Some write about Nigerians being in British Athletics team. They are not Nigerians they are British of Nigerian descent. Funny that no one says the whites in SADC region are British. They are known as Zimbabweans, South Africans or Zambians. The same goes for us. I bet you most people will read and not understand clearly what I am saying and start to rant and curse a trait in Nigerians that British born people like us don't have.

Mistake ko! Mistake Ni! This is a stoopid story. The parents came up with this lame explanation to remove the stigma of suicide.

Nonsense! So he collected his results and had nothing else to do in this life but test how Robin Williams died? Smh!

May his soul RIP

Unknown said...

Wow! He gave himsef short cut to his untimely death. RIP.

So unfortunate.

I think I should reply here. I must commend this comment of yours sir! It's unlike your others. We try to let celebrities know that so many people are looking up to them in different areas of their lives and that is why you all have to represent well! You should be a testimony to the young ones not negative representation and nudity. It is well. Matt 7:16. 1thes 5:17. @Bishop_Dammy

Think I should reply on this one. I really have to commend this comment of yours sir! It's so different compared to others. I keep on saying it here and I want our celebrities to take note! You are there and other people are looking towards you especially the young ones, , you really have to represent well in all and stop coming out nude for example so the growing ones can learn positive from you.

Can't you see that your mentality is colonized? Just becos u were born there makes u ashamed of your origin? Ever wondered why the African Americans took pains to trace their origins back to Africa?

This is a clear case of a young kid trying out the autoerotic asphyxiation (g00gle it), which allows you to have more intense and longer orgasms by cutting off oxygen supply. Many people try it, others fail and end up dead.
