British ‘Breaking Bad’ Superfan Found Dead Where TV Show Was Filmed
We can all agree that Breaking Bad is one of the best TV shows of all time. It's attracted fans from all around the world to visit Albuquerque, where AMC filmed the programme, to see what life is really like.
One of those people who wanted to see the streets and buildings featured in the show was British man Andy Jackson.
According to the Mirror, the Nottingham-born father of one emigrated to New Mexico after meeting a woman online who lived in the city where Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) established their meth empire.
Tragically though, Andy's body was discovered wrapped in plastic near the remote village of Magdalena last year and police still haven't been able to find who murdered him.
The 51-year-old reportedly suffered two fatal blows to the head at his farmhouse in Albuquerque before being taken into the desert and dumped. Shockingly, while it was in September that Andy's body was found, it wasn't until January that his family were notified about his death.

His brother Robin Jackson, 43, told the Mirror: "As a family we'd lost touch with Andy, but since his murder we've been told he was obsessed with Breaking Bad. I wouldn't rule out that he could have become involved in something underhand to survive over there financially as he could be a bit of a loose cannon.
"But we've been given no evidence of that. The worst thing is not knowing what happened to Andy.
"We need answers. Andy's still in a morgue in Albuquerque and the police don't seem to be doing anything."
Robin says the relationship his brother struck with the woman from Albuquerque was virtually instantaneous. After less than a year of seeing each other via long-distance, she flew to Sheffield to marry him and then they moved back to New Mexico a week later.
However, their marriage went from whirlwind to disaster and Andy found himself living in hostels before moving into a farmhouse.
While the woman isn't a suspect in his murder, court documents obtained by the Mirror indicate that they had both taken restraining orders out against each other when the marriage broke down.
Andy said on social media a month before his body was discovered that he was dealing with legal issues, but that's the only reference to problems in New Mexico. His family are just trying to get to the bottom of why he was murdered.
