Stephen Gately Cause of Death, Obituary – Stephen Patrick David Gately was an Irish singer who, along with Ronan Keating, was the co-lead singer of the pop group Boyzone. During Gately’s lifetime, all of Boyzone’s studio albums reached number one in the United Kingdom, with their third album being their most successful internationally. Gately passed away on October 10, 2009. He was born on March 17, 1976. Gately broke a record when, when performing with Boyzone, he had sixteen singles in a row that placed in the top five of the UK Singles Chart. He gave performances for tens of millions of people all around the world.
After the original dissolution of the band in 2000, he issued a solo album that eventually reached number ten on the UK album charts and produced three hit singles in that country, one of which, “New Beginning,” reached number three. After that, Gately continued his career by performing in a variety of theatrical musicals, making appearances on television shows, and contributing songs to a wide range of projects. In 2008, he got back together with the other members of Boyzone when the band decided to regroup for a new run of shows and albums. Early in the morning of October 10, 2009, Gately passed away at his house in Port d’Andratx, Mallorca.
His corpse was found later that morning after the search had been conducted. During further investigation, it was revealed that an undetected cardiac ailment was the root cause of the pulmonary oedema that ultimately led to his death. Gately and his boyfriend Cowles had been seen earlier that evening at the Black Cat club, which is located in Palma, the capital of Mallorca. They went home with a man named Georgi Dochev who was a citizen of Bulgaria; the two of them had met him earlier that evening. Dochev slept in the room designated for guests only.
According to Dochev, he found the corpse of Gately lying on a couch as he was getting ready to leave the house. Rachel, who was sleeping on her alone in the bedroom that belonged to the couple, was awoken by him. Gerald Kean, who was friendly with the Gately family and worked as Gately’s attorney, maintained that Cowles was the one who discovered Gately’s corpse. When Cowles had attempted to resuscitate Gately around 1:45 in the afternoon, he contacted the Spanish police to report the incident.
Gately could be seen sitting in an odd posture on the couch while wearing his pajamas. He was squatting. The police have said that they have no cause to suspect that the death was connected to the misuse of any chemicals, and they have not discovered any traces of violence or a suicide note on his corpse.
