It is a truth universally acknowledged, that any troofer who should happen to shuffle off this mortal coil under any circumstances whatsoever is perforce a victim of the Powers That Be, who have murdered him or her for their own vile and dastardly reasons.
Since we reported on the untimely death of Aaron Dover a few months ago, rumours of how he died have sprung up like mushrooms across the internet. Most of these rumours involve dire mutterings such as “he was killed for what he knew”, or “‘they’ had him killed but made it look like a suicide”. You know the sort of thing.
We’d originally decided not to follow this story further, in part because rehashing the details of what actually happened to Aaron would be terribly distressing to his family; but the mutterings in WooWooLand are growing louder, and we think it’s time to put the story straight.
Caution: Readers who are upset by descriptions of graphic violence should probably read no further.
It seems that Aaron was staying in a borrowed flat in Subang Jaya, Malaysia, when he died. According to Aaron’s friend Dylan Ellis, the actual tenant of the flat, Aaron committed suicide by jumping from a twelfth-floor window:Dylan further explains that while he was not present at the time when Aaron died, he saw pictures of the event and identified the body afterward:
You didn’t see it so I don’t expect you to (believe it) but the fact is he landed on his legs and then hit his face after jumping from the 12th floor and it was really gross.
I was in Thailand so I didn’t see it but I saw many photos that people around had taken and the investigation people took plus the camera footage from the building but the point is I went and saw the body.
In a later post on one of his YouTube channels*, Dylan veers off into an anti-Semitic, homophobic rant about freemasons and paedophile slaves and so forth, but we have no reason to doubt that he is telling the truth when he talks about his friend’s death. In fact, given that he and Aaron shared some very odd beliefs about how the world works, one might expect Dylan to embroider the facts. The fact that he refrains from doing so only adds credibility to his description of Aaron’s distressed state of mind, and his ultimate decision to end his own life. Dylan contrasts his own life-long poverty with Aaron’s comparative wealth, and has trouble understanding his friend’s depression:
The reason I am contrasting is I am trying to explain to you the difference it how he must been feeling once he let all that London shit back in his head, he had gotten rid of it and was doing great in Thailand, I mean he had on and off days but man he was f**king depressed about what those a**holes had done to him and there was this thing if he killed himself his sister would get his flat and not his ex-wife so look the reasons were really his own fucked up rich people are cunts problem.
Ultimately, Dylan concludes that Aaron made the decision to end his own life because of “his personal life shit…the London shit, the ex-wife shit, the lose house in the divorce shit and just general London twat bullshit”.
But wait, there’s more!
Some of the troofers who’ve been trying to raise the alarm about Aaron’s alleged murder have been pointing to a witness statement prepared by Aaron in July 2014 as part of a lawsuit involving his former business partners in London. This statement, currently available on scribd.com, offers Aaron’s side of the story: he alleged that his ex-partners first defrauded him in 2012, and then bad-mouthed him to his subsequent employers (all four of them) with the result that he was sacked from all four positions.
- The applicants are motivated by exceptional levels of greed, and are extremely ruthless, to the extent that they chose to defraud me in respect of my share which was relatively tiny, despite their extraordinarily large earnings. This was in the context of my having built the systems upon which the success of the business depended. The profit shares are not even the whole picture of the partners earnings – they also made vast sums through investing in the fund free of fees and had numerous approaches to reducing their tax burdens some of which caused me concern especially when I was going to be forced to participate in the Xxxxx scheme whose purpose I had been told was for tax avoidance.
- By contrast to the other four partners who have been making tens or hundreds of millions from the firm, I was paid one million USD, less than my full 2011 profit share, and have then been hounded out of the industry by the badmouthing and menacing conduct of the partners. My life is left in a ruined state whilst they continue to enjoy all the vast profits of both their rightful part, and my rightful part of the firm. They are like spoilt children, to them the whole thing is a game and they run the firm as if it is a playground, and they have not the slightest care or remorse for what they have done to me.
- Since LMR fired me I have worked for Marble Bar Asset Management, Prologue Capital and Credit Suisse. None of these roles offered anywhere close to the remuneration I would have received from my part of LMR. Furthermore, I did not leave any of these four jobs by choice, and I believe the conduct of the applicants, starting with their badmouthing of me to investors of Prologue Capital, has been responsible directly or indirectly for this devastating series of events. I now find myself unemployed without realistic prospects of continuing in my career to date.
- I am very unwell with severe symptoms of anxiety and depression resulting from the situation I am left in following the events described in my account. My physical and mental health has deteriorated over the period since the dispute began between XXX and me in November 2011. I have been suffering from panic attacks, headaches, loss of sleep, nausea, vomiting, chronic fatigue, depressive symptoms and heart palpitations. It is my view, supported by the Dr. Pxxxxx Lxxxxx, that I currently lack the mental capacity to conduct these proceedings. At the time of sending many of the emails described by the Applicants, in particular those at the end of February immediately prior to the un-staying of these proceedings, I believe that I was in a very poor state of mind and that some of the decisions I was making about how to escape from this dispute would seem on reflection to be irrational and self-destructive. I would ask the court to consider my poor mental health as a mitigating factor. Sir Robert Owen QC in the hearing of 5 Mar 2014 used the phrase to describe me as being at times “unable to contain emotions” and I think this is a very accurate description of the situation. I have at times felt enraged, despairing, scared or just hopeless. To clarify this point further, I do not have a long history of mental illness. This dispute and all its devastating ramifications for my life since November 2011 have caused great harm to my mental functioning, and it is this dispute that is wholly responsible for causing mental health to become an issue for me when it had not been previously.
This self-description bears out the information provided by Dylan: Aaron was clearly in a very disturbed mental state by early 2014. By his own admission he had been sending abusive emails to his former business partners, which he explains by noting that he was in an “irrational and self-destructive” state.
The previous September, he made headlines in Hampstead when he was involuntarily sectioned following a police “manhunt”:
Hampstead resident Aaron Dover has spoken of his incarceration at Highgate Mental Health Centre in a bid to raise public awareness of the complexities of mental health issues.
The 39-year-old IT consultant was sectioned against his will last September and forced to take anti-psychotic drugs daily while he was in hospital. But within two weeks a tribunal found his detention was not justified and he walked free.
Mr Dover, who lives in Keats Grove, Hampstead, relived the drama of the day he was captured and told the Ham&High: “I was brought into hospital by a major police manhunt of over 10 police cars, police with dogs trawling Hampstead Heath, and a police helicopter, while I was out quietly having a coffee on Flask Walk.
“The police escalated to a ‘high risk missing person’ manhunt. I was hunted down like a nuclear suicide bomber rather than someone out for Sunday breakfast.”
The former University College School student had been under intense pressure due to an employment dispute and had at times suffered from depression.
On September 15, his wife called the NHS 111 out-of-hours number concerned for his wellbeing.
Authorities feared he may be suicidal and within the hour he was tracked down by police in Grove Place, Hampstead.
The IT consultant was taken to Highgate Mental Health Centre where doctors suspected he had a delusional disorder and eight days later he was sectioned.
Mr Dover, an intermittent user of cannabis for 24 years including highly potent skunk, admits he was under intense stress but believes his sectioning was based on hearsay and not enough was done to verify his account of events.
On October 2, following a five hour hearing, a tribunal found that it was “not satisfied that he was suffering from a mental disorder”.
It seems clear that Aaron’s mental condition continued to deteriorate.
In 2016 when this blog notified police that we had been receiving graphic and disturbing death threats from Aaron, we were informed that the police were well aware of his case, that he had made similar threats against a number of people including family members, and that should he attempt to re-enter the UK from Thailand, he would be immediately apprehended.
We don’t really expect that this information will stop people like Angela Power-Disney and Kristie Sue Costa from hinting darkly that Aaron was murdered and/or mind-controlled by the Evil Superpowers of Doom…but we do hope that those who are genuinely confused about the rumours and misinformation they’ve found about Aaron’s death will find some answers here.
*While we appreciate Dylan’s insights into how his friend died, we can’t say we like or sympathise with his views. And his video is best left unwatched. Believe us, we tried.
