Chandigarh, January 21
Choreographer-director Remo D’souza’s brother-in-law Jason Savio Watkins recently died by suicide. Jason, who was 48 years old, was working in the film industry for quite sometime.
Watkins was found dead at his residence in Mumbai’s Yamuna Nagar in Andheri (west) due to unknown reasons.
Police was informed about the death on Thursday noon. The police confirmed that Watkins, 48, hanged himself but no suicide note was found.
He was rushed to the Cooper Hospital where he was declared brought dead, the police said.
His family members, including his 74-year-old step father and sister, reportedly told the police that he was suffering from depression for the last three years after his mother Daina passed away.
Remo D’souza took to Instagram to share a picture of himself with Jason Savio Watkins.
“You broke our hearts brother…hope you finally found peace. Rest in peace,” he wrote.
