A suicide note believed to have been written by former Manic Street Preachers guitarist Richey Edwards has been confirmed as a fake. The note, which was written in Chinese, was found in a lift by a fan who recently made the claim to the Daily Mirror newspaper. Handwriting tests were carried out on the letter by specialists at Leicester De Montfort University before it was agreed that it was in fact, in their words, "just a bit of Chinese paper."
Mr Edwards has been missing since 1st February 1995. The search goes on.
