Sad news.  :'(
I was just about to ask what's gonna happen with the EP he'd recorded with TV last year...
Just around the corner and miles away...

I'm not sure, all I've found in "search" is this:
Quote
“We’re talking about me writing and recording the music, and I think [Smith] would do all the vocals and take care of the lyric writing so I don’t look like a jock trying to write poetry,”

TV / Reatard collaboration

Tim will obviously know if this happened, but I expect he's a bit shocked at the moment. Following the tour via this site they seem to have become pretty friendly, so I'm sorry for your loss Tim.

All the very best mate.

I have to say I really liked Jay Reatard's music too and, selfishly, it's a great shame they'll be no more performances

Oh dear!

Murder? I hope this is just the routine that happens with any sudden death.
