More information about Scot Young’s death
Scot Young was a successful property developer many years ago before his well-publicized divorce from his ex-wife, Michelle. From 1995 through 2006, the pair were married for 11 years. Young was imprisoned for six months after his ex-wife reportedly persuaded the court that the entrepreneur failed to give appropriate financial and wealth details. Scot Young allegedly began dating a TV anchor called Noelle Reno later in life.
Young committed himself by jumping from his ex-London girlfriend’s home on December 8, 2014. At the time, the property developer was said to be suffering from bipolar illness as well as alcohol and drug problems. BuzzFeed stated in 2017 that his death was linked to the Russian government. Once Upon a Time in Londongrad, a forthcoming documentary, will provide a fuller picture of Scot Young’s murder and its strange ties with the Russian state.
