Director Franks had stomach ulcers

            Director Franks had stomach ulcers, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Dyspepsia, migraines, anxiety and his hair had gone white prematurely before falling out completely.

David continued to scroll downwards until the third page where he clicked on a headline that reported the death of Hailey Cosworth.
