Stab­bing vic­tim, 15, ‘was an­gel’

Western Mail - - UK & WORLD NEWS -

A 15-YEAR-OLD boy fa­tally stabbed just yards from his home was “an an­gel”, his heart-bro­ken grand­fa­ther has said.

The young vic­tim was named by Ge­orge El­litts as his grand­son, Kee­lan Wil­son, a kind-hearted boy who once raised hun­dreds of pounds for Great Or­mond Street Hospi­tal in a sponsored hair-cut, he said.

Speak­ing out­side the fam­ily home in Wolver­hamp­ton yes­ter­day, Mr El­litts paid trib­ute to Kee­lan, who was fa­tally wounded in an at­tack on Tues­day night.

He said: “To me, he was an an­gel.”

Mr El­litts added: “They were all sup­posed to be go­ing on hol­i­day a week to­mor­row, to Egypt.”

Po­lice said they were work­ing on whether it was “a ran­dom at­tack” or there was a mo­tive.
