Greek police investigating the fatal stabbing of a 19-year-old British tourist on Crete have charged a man with the killing.
Myles Litchmore-Dunbar,19, has been charged with the murder of Tyrell Matthews-Burton as well as possession of a weapon.
Police attributed the murder to gang violence between rival groups in Britain. As 19 other Britons arrested in connection with the crime appeared before a public prosecutor on Wednesday, police said they had begun to assemble a picture of two gangs “bent on destroying one another”.
“They had scores to settle long before they arrived here,” said a police officer, Yannis Phillipakis, in Heraklion, the island’s capital. “Unofficially, what we are hearing is that they brought their gang warfare to Crete.”
The murder on Tuesday of Matthews-Burton, a shop assistant, in the island resort of Malia sent shockwaves through Greece.
The young Londoner, described by neighbours as a “little gentleman”, was stabbed in the back and chest as a drunken row quickly turned into a brawl with other British holidaymakers. The ferocity of the attack caused the local coroner, Manolis Michalodimitrakis, who examined the body, to liken the assault to an execution. Continue Reading….
It has been reported that Litchmore-Dunbar attends Northampton University where he is studying Economics and he is also a part time model.
My heart goes out to Tyrell’s family.
I am just angry and disgusted right now. How low of a human being can you be to commit such wickedness? I cannot believe that the animals responsible for Tyrell’s brutal and senseless murder went on holiday armed and hungry to leave nothing but carnage in their wake.
Can someone please explain this insanity to me?
I hope the guilty individual/s go down for this and spend the majority of their miserable days suffering in a prison cell in Greece.
Rest In Peace Tyrell Matthews-Burton.
