A loving father of three has been identified as a victim of a triple stabbing in Tewkesbury.
A MAN who died in a picturesque country village after an alleged triple stabbing has been described as a much-loved father-of-three.
On Tuesday in Walton Cardiff, near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, Matthew Boorman, 43, was pronounced dead at the scene of the violence. After Mr Boorman, another man in his 40s, and a lady were stabbed on a street at 5 p.m., police apprehended a suspect.
According to Gloucestershire Live, officers have named and photographed Mr Boorman with his family’s permission to assist with the appeal.
The bereaved family issued the following statement: “Matthew was a devoted husband and father to three beautiful little children who adored and missed him dearly.
“He was a son, a brother, and an uncle. We were devastated to lose him so quickly.” The other two victims were rushed to the hospital, one of whom was a man in his forties who was in critical condition.
Faye Gardiner, a friend who described what occurred to the Boorman family as “utterly sad,” set up a Go Fund Me page with an initial goal of £1,000 that quickly surpassed $2,000.
“It’s difficult to lose a loved one at any age, but losing one under such awful circumstances as yesterday night is even more so. I’m creating this page in honor of Matt Boorman, who died tragically last night “she penned
“I’d want to express my heartfelt condolences to my great friend, his lovely wife, Sarah, and their three small children during this difficult time. Whether it’s for funeral expenses, financial support for Sarah and the kids, or a trust fund for the kids when they’re older, it’ll be put to good use.
“Any contribution, no matter how large or small, will be much appreciated. Right now, we’re thinking a lot about Sarah and the kids. Let us demonstrate to her how much Matt was adored by his friends, family, and neighbors. At this difficult moment, my thoughts and prayers are with the family.” You can make a donation here.
