Beloved rock star Gord Lewis found dead aged 65, allegedly ‘murdered by his own son’

Canadian rock star Gord Lewis died aged 65 on Sunday, allegedly murdered by his own son.

The Hamilton Police Department said it found Lewis in Ontario, and had “isolated” the incident to the musician’s son, Johnathan Lewis.

Johnathan Lewis, 41, has since been arrested and charged over the death.

Despite charging Johnathan Lewis, Beck added that they were “continuing to seek out witnesses and reviewing video in the area”.

Police said “a positive identification has not been made of the deceased due to the level of decomposition”, the Post reported.

Reportedly Gord Lewis had “injuries consistent with foul play” and the death was deemed a homicide.

Police said they were performing a wellness check on Lewis’ residence after a 911 call from staff at Canadian publication The Spectator.

Beck said the publication was receiving suspicious messages from two email accounts – both linked to Johnathan Lewis.

The first message came at 8 pm on 6 August (local time) and continued until the next day.

Reportedly one email said, “Funeral people need to get here quick. My dad is starting to decay”.

Another said, “Now I just want to get help for my sickness and give my dad a proper burial. He didn’t deserve this”.

An autopsy is set to be performed along with “additional steps” to determine the cause of death properly.

The only other family member to speak out was Johnathan’s brother Brian Lewis who said, “We ask that you respect our privacy at this time,” according to The Spectator.

Lewis’ band Teenage Head announced the news on their Instagram on Tuesday.

“We are heartbroken and still trying to process the loss of our friend, bandmate and brother Gord Lewis Our hearts are with his family and all that knew and loved him,” the statement said.

“Gord was a force and an inspiration to many.

“You were taken from us far too soon.”

Lewis’ death is not the first for the rock band they lost another member, their drummer Frankie Venom in 2008 after a battle with throat cancer.

Teenage Head first began in 1975 when the band members were still in high school.

The band is best known for their songs Let’s Shake and Some Kinda Fun.
