It would seem that some of the residents of Burgay, Suffolk in the UK know something that many Harry Potter fans are dying to know. Printing for the next book is taking place in the town and residents are placing bets on a specific character to die in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so much so that it is feared that a leak of the plot may have occurredopens in new window.

Warren Lush of Ladbrokes, a betting outlet in the UK said:

We weren't foolish enough to take the bets. There are obviously people out there who have read the manuscripts.

This of course is just a rumor and since the publishers of the books are not releasing any information we will just have to wait to see what happens in Half-Blood Prince in July. Read the story at your own risk.

Also as a favor to fans please don't post who the character is in your comments.
