Justin Danton Bio/Wiki
In Colombia, a British ex-pat actor named Justin Danton who was about to become a father for the first time was slain in a hit-and-run.
On August 9, Justin Danton was crossing the road when he was struck by a fast-moving automobile. The vehicle drove away quickly, leaving him lying in the roadway.
He was 37 years old.
Mary Cruz Avendano is the girlfriend of Justin Danton.
Hit And Run
Passers-by rushed to his help, and he was carried to a nearby Medellin hospital with head injuries, but doctors were unable to save him. Justin, who tragically died on Monday, was due to become a father in November.
For their unborn son, he and his mourning partner Mary Cruz Avendano had already decided on the name Ethan. Justin, who was born in Margate, Kent, had only recently relocated to the South American country in May and planned to stay for 11 months.
He had traveled to the South American country in search of a job after appearing in the film The Legend of the Mad Axe Man.
Beacon, Ready or Not, and Resentment are three short films in which Justin has appeared.
His death is being investigated as murder.
The car has been discovered, and the suspect is being interrogated.
Justin’s parents, Gemma, 56, and Lee, 53, have started a GoFundMe page to seek funds for their newborn grandchild. So far, they’ve raised $9,112 out of a total of roughly $8,000.
Mary Cruz expressed her gratitude to Gemma by saying, “I have no words to thank you for what you are doing for us.”
Gemma said, “We are all with you my darling heart.”
“You are not alone. Help is on the way.”
