    Filmmaker 'froze to death' reporting on homelessness

    A young filmmaker is believed to have frozen to death as he made a documentary about sleeping rough on the streets.

    Lee Halpin, 26, had planned to spend a week living on the streets in his home city of Newcastle to experience what it was like to be homeless.

    Speaking on a YouTube video, he said the project was part of an application for an investigative journalism course and that he intended to "immerse" himself in the lifestyle of a homeless person.

    He embarked upon his project on Sunday but was apparently found dead three days later in a derelict building in the West End of the city.

    The cause of death is still not known, but one of his friends told the Evening Chronicle he believes Lee may have succumbed to hypothermia.

    NEVER "immerse"...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Well, I guess that wasn't such a great idea after all.

    I'm sure his family cares and in respect for their mourning I'll refrain from asking , 'Who gives a shit?"

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    When I've donated coats to organizations that serve the homeless, I usually donate a thermal, outdoor worksuit-everybody donates stuff for kids and moms, but forget about the men out there.



    If the reporter had had the common sense to go buy a Carhart suit, he'd still be alive today.

    How often do the words "reporter" and "common sense" appear in the same sentence?
