Statement and photos released by the family of Thomas Coombes
Tom was living a happy and beautiful life.
He was walking home from uni where he was studying photography – following his passion after becoming a qualified builder.
He was a keen sportsman, with a genuine interest in and love for his family and many friends.
His life was taken from him, and from all of us who love him, in a cruel act of violence.
If releasing this statement can help to track his movements on Tuesday evening, or in any other way, please pass any information to the police.
