Norwich Puppet Man dead or just rumor?

Both twitter and Facebook have been full of news about Norwich legend the Puppet Man’s demise but is the Norwich Puppet Man dead?

It’s looking (at this point anyway) that it is a rumor started via his Wikipedia page. Word from his Facebook page states that he may have had a heart attack around 8:30pm this evening. Even his website (yes, he has a website) state that it is unconfirmed.

The Puppet Man (real name David Perry) has been entertaining passers by with his sock waving since the mid 80s and splits his time between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, where he now lives.

[UPDATE]: EDP crime corespondent Ben Kendall says he is not dead.

[UPDATE]: It’s official… He’s not dead, he was just sleeping.
