Richard Norman Everitt

Categories: Children, Tragedy

Richard was an innocent victim of gang warfare. Aged 15 he was murdered on his way home from playing football. He and his friends were confronted by around 20 older boys and Richard stabbed in the back with a kitchen knife as he tried to run to safety. The attack was said to be in revenge for a jewellery mugging by another Somers Town boy a day before – an event in which Richard played no part.
