A man who died after being stabbed in Southend has been described as "cheeky, ambitious, and extremely creative".Immediately, alarm bells are ringing...
Courtney Valentine-Brown...Hmmm. That name seems strangely familiar, somehow.
...who was 36 and from Southend, was found injured at an address in Roots Hall Drive shortly before midnight on Thursday.*ponders*
In a tribute, his family said: “We are heartbroken over the murder of our dear son, brother, uncle and cousin who was tragically taken away from us prematurely.
“He was ambitious, cheeky and extremely creative with his whole future ahead of him despite his life challenges.”Ah! *snaps fingers* It's just come back to me.
And since when did you need to 'be creative' to have 'a whole future ahead of you' as a drug dealer?
