Romando Anderson Commits Suicide

Former Village United striker Romando Anderson from Falmouth is dead after allegedly committing suicide.

The diminutive Anderson aka “Short Boss,” is the son of well known ice cream vendor affectionately called “Shorty.”


It is alleged that Anderson drank the poisonous herbicide, Gramoxone, popularly (but incorrectly) called Gramazone.

He was hospitalised in Falmouth Hospital and then transferred to the Cornwall Regional Hospital, where he eventually succumbed to the effects of the dangerous chemical. He died yesterday after battling the consequences of his action for about a week.
