The 'High School Musical' star, singer, songwriter, dancer and actor, Lucas Grabeel was killed by the internet on 9th January 2014. Thousands of his fans were seen to write on his Facebook page, and Twitter was alight with the news.
The 29 year old supposedly died of unknown causes, in his home town of Springfield, Missouri, USA. His Facebook page gained over a million likes on it's statement, telling fans of the shocking news, and asking them to show their sympathy and condolences by commenting and liking the page.
However, more recent news has revealed that Grabeel has been the latest victim, in a long list, of falsified deaths by social media. The 'Smallville' actor is said to be 'alive and well', and is now joining the growing number of fake death stories for celebrities of the last few months and years. It is still unclear as to how these rumors were started, but it's obvious that this is not an isolated incident.
