TEEN WAS AN ANGEL
A 15-YEAR-old boy stabbed to death just yards from his home was an “angel”, his devastated family said.
Keelan Wilson was with a friend in Wolverhampton when he was attacked at 11pm on Tuesday.
He was taken to hospital, but shortly after arriving he was confirmed dead.
His grandfather, George Ellitts, said: “To me, he was an angel.
“They were all supposed to be going on holiday a week tomorrow, to Egypt.
“He’s lived with me all my life.” The teen loved cars and had just enrolled at college in Birmingham.
He once raised hundreds of pounds for Great Ormond Street Hospital in a sponsored hair-cut.
Neighbour Lily Thompson, 81, said: “It’s such a shame. Keelan was such a nice, smiley lad.”
Police said a “group” had been involved but no arrests have been made.
Det Ch Insp Chris Mallett said: “A young boy has tragically been killed and we are determined to find out why this has happened.”
