In 2012, a coroner ruled there was not enough evidence to say whether he had taken his own life deliberately, or by accident.A decade on, Dan Walker, who presents BBC Breakfast, has said he still has questions about the tragedy, The Express reports.Gary had appeared on Dan show Football Focus the day before he was found dead, and his death came as a huge shock to the presenter, who was also a friend.In his new book, Remarkable People, the BBC Breakfast star interviewed Gary’s two sons Thomas and Edward about their father, a conversation he recalled in a new interview with Simon Thomas on the podcast Life, Interrupted.He said: “I think, talking to them [his sons] and talking to Alan Shearer, Gary McAllister and Gary’s agent, [Melissa] Chappell, who knew him so well, all of them feel that something happened in Gary’s head that night and, for whatever reason, decided there was no other option and everybody feels had they had talked to him that night, he’d still be here and I know that must eat them up on occasions.”I don’t know if you ever get over that.(Image: PA)”I’ve spoken to people who have lost loved ones and really good friends the same way Gary went and I’d not think it ever gets easier, does it?”Admitting he wonders whether he could have done more to help his friend, he urged others to do what they could to support anyone who might be struggling.He said: “I think about it a lot really, if I’m honest with you.”As a friend, could I have done more? As a Christian, should I have done more? Could I have picked up on something either that day or another day and spoken to him about it?”I suppose the encouragement out of it for me is, we’ve got to be honest with each other haven’t we? And ask if we’re OK.Read MoreGrieving Cramlington mum calls for more mental health support after 12 year old daughter death”You know, send that text that makes you feel awkward sometimes, or make that phone call.”It’s hard to say asking a really good friend or somebody you know, ‘What are you struggling with? What can I help with? Is there anything you want to talk about?'”And, not being happy with the first answer sometimes. You might get brushed off, we all do that sometimes.”.
