It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of Élissya Lécuyer. She suffered a heart attack on April 25th, 2016 while completing a crossword. She could not find “4 Down,” which sent her body into chaos. Ironically the answer for 4 Down, was heart attack.
Doctors are now confirming that she was also under extreme stress, which was probably due to the four papers she had yet to start writing. She always claimed she just edited The Procrastinator, but in her death we learn one truth… She truly was The Procrastinator.
In her honour, Bandersnatch Crosswords will never again include “4 Down.”
