Victim Kevin Tripp was killed by a single punch to the head.
Via The Daily Mail
His face contorted with rage, a thug kills an innocent shopper with a single blow after a trivial argument over queue jumping in Sainsbury’s.
A chilling sequence of startlingly clear CCTV images shows Tony Virasami – who was wearing an electronic tag at the time of the offence – mistakenly identifying Kevin Tripp and then striking him.
Mr Tripp, 57, a father of one who was in the store to buy organic apples, died after Virasami mistook him for another man who had insulted his heroin addict girlfriend.
The argument between Antonette Richardson and Adam Prendergast over who was next to be served was the sort of petty incident that takes place in supermarkets across the country.
But instead of walking away, Richardson vowed revenge and phoned 37-year- old Virasami to come to the supermarket and attack Mr Prendergast.
Virasami stormed in – one witness described him as ‘sweating’ and ‘looking for a fight’ – and demanded to know who was responsible.
Richardson, who at 37 was already a grandmother, can clearly be seen pointing out to Virasami the person whom she wants revenge exacted on.
Tragically, Mr Tripp – who weighed only nine stones and suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome – was standing near Mr Prendergast when Virasami.
Shouting ‘Don’t mess with my missus’, Virasami struck Mr Tripp. The ‘almighty’ force of what most witnesses described as an openhanded slap – one spoke of a ‘ haymaker’ – hurled him off his feet.
Virasami was told that he had attacked an innocent person. But, with Mr Tripp lying bleeding on the ground, that merely prompted Richardson to say to her boyfriend: ‘Yes, we need to find the right guy.’
She then pointed out 19-year-old Mr Prendergast at the Sainsbury’s Savacentre in Merton, South-West London.
This is the moment when Tony Virasami threw the punch which killed innocent Kevin Tripp. Antonette Richardson can be seen pointing at the man she had argued with.
Pair of scum bags: Antonette Richardson and boyfriend Tony Virasami
An innocent man, out shopping, minding his own business was killed because Richardson and Virasami, a pair of drug addled petty scum bag thieves, were desperate for a fight. Looking to war in Sainsbury’s of all places!
Within seconds they left an innocent man fatally injured and a family totally destroyed because of a stupid argument over alleged queue jumping.
I hope that the low lifes waste away behind bars.
And I cannot even look at Virasami. A wasted thug with the added misfortune of being born without any brain cells. You are an embarassment!
Rest In Peace Kevin Tripp.
