Reports are that the veteran Disk Jock Mighty Mike was supposed to have worked the 6:00pm-10:00pm shift on Irie-FM but did not turn up for work. Repeated calls to his cell phone went unanswered, after which a member of staff, fellow disc jockey DJ Amber, was dispatched to Mighty Mike’s house.
All evidence pointed to the fact that the disc jock was inside the house but he did not respond to constant shouts or knocks on his door.
“They had to get a locksmith to break into the house, and when they reached inside they found him dead,” one source said.
Early reports are that apparently Mighty Mike took sick at home, as there were signs of vomit in the house, and was unable to call for help.
The disc jock, who was said to be in his fifties, was reportedly diabetic.
The Police do not suspect foul play..
