DWARF PIERS MORGAN FOUND DEAD IN CHURCH ORGAN
‘Murder’ after 3ft 5in perv flashes at choir
DESPITE being only four feet tall, Jerry Harte never complained about his diminutive stature.
To be fair, he had bigger problems – he was the spitting image of TV provocateur PIERS MORGAN.
His mind unhinged by this likeness to the argumentative Good Morning Britain host, the 45- year- old began releasing his frustration by exposing himself around his home town of Merthyr Tydfil in Mid- Glamorgan.
But now Jerry’s career as a reluctant lookalike and occasional flasher is at an end – after he was found DEAD in an organ pipe at his local church.
Details of unmarried Jerry’s death are still sketchy. Authorities will merely confirm that: “The body of a 45- year- old man was found at St Antoine’s Church, Merthyr Tydfil.”
It is still not clear if Jerry committed suicide or if foul play was involved.
According to local people, there is not shortage of suspects if he was indeed bumped off.
One man, who asked not to be named, told Sunday Sport: “If you made a list of people who wanted Jerry Harte out of the way, it would include most of Merthyr.
“He was not a jolly ‘ Santa’s elf’ kind of midget. He was one of those surly ones who seemed perpetually angry at life.
“When he started flashing, he went from a figure of derision to a figure of slight menace. He once waved his privates at the choir as they paraded to church for St Antoine’s Day.
“The priest stormed over and gave him a clip around the ear.”
It’s believed Jerry was regularly mocked by local children – even though youngsters were warned to stay away from him by their parents.
Our source said: “Kids would call after him ‘ He’s a runt, he’s a runt and he looks like that c** t Piers Morgan’. It was quite a catchy little chant, to be honest, but it got Jerry’s goat.
“Occasionally he’d snap and furiously scamper after the kiddies as fast as his little legs could carry him. But they were always too quick for him.
“He was an oddball and a pervert but he added to the character of the town. Now we’ve only got Mad Alan who shouts ‘ COAL’ at buses.”
An inquest into Jerry’s death will open tomorrow.
