A friend of the deceased, who preferred anonymity, said Lewis was a “bodybuilding enthusiast”.
“He put in a lot of work in the gym. He was very focused. I am shocked,” the friend said.
Asked if Lewis seemed depressed at any time, the friend said: “He was not the most popular guy but he never showed any signs that he was depressed. But you never know, sometimes people are dying inside and use a smile to mask it.”
