According to an NSW Officers spokesman, officers were called to a flat on Crown Street in Surry Hills at 10 a.m. on January 21, 2023, in response to reports that a man’s body had been discovered there. “The body of the 35-year-old resident is believed to be in the container. Surry Hills Police Area Command officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding his death, which are not being treated as suspicious, according to a spokesman.

Simon was first hesitant to speak with DNA because he felt he had failed the LGBTIQ community and those who had supported him for years by not making the Olympic team. He did, however, want to talk about the mental health concerns and despair many LGBTIQ people endure. Simon competed in international bobsled competitions for Australia and trained in Canada before moving to London. He met celebrities, lived with his partner, and had a successful business there.
He is not alone; according to the National LGBT Health Alliance, about 30% of the LGBTIQ population has experienced depression in the last three years. According to the Australian Men’s Health Forum, men account for six of every eight suicides in Australia.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics recently released data that paints a more bleak picture. They reveal that suicide is on the rise, with 10% more men committing themselves in 2017 than in 2016.
