How did Christian Kerr die?

It is with profound sadness that I must inform the family of Spectator Australia writers, readers and fans of the tragic death of our Flat White editor Christian Kerr. Christian passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his beloved family and many friends. He was a major creative talent and he will be sorely missed.

Flat White remains one of his many great media achievements, having stewarded it since its inception in June 2016 and grown it into the powerful voice in Australian political, media, and cultural circles that it is today.
