Did you watch Degrassi Junior High back in the day? Neil Hope was on the show and played Derek Wheels Wheeler. Apparently Neil died about five years ago but no one even knew about it until last month. I guess the guy was a loner and his parents decided to start looking for him a couple of years ago and finally were told by police in Hamilton, Ontario that Neil had died way back in 2007, but his parents just found out last month.

Police say that Derek was a diabetic, died of natural causes and never listed a next of kin on any documents.
