Lee was a friend of Simon McManus. In April 2018, Lee overheard Simon bragging about throwing acid in Ross Barton's face, and reported him to the police. However, on the day of the trial, Lee got high on drugs with his friend Dawn and accidentally overdosed. Because of Lee's death, his statement was rendered unusable and therefore resulted in Simon being found not guilty.
