Deceased Rugby man named as Mark Richmond

THE MAN who died in Rugby at the weekend has been named as Mark Richmond.

Officers were called to a property in Newland Street just after 6am on Thursday (September 2) where Mr Richmond was found to have sustained multiple serious injuries.

The 47-year-old was taken to hospital, but died on Saturday morning (September 4).

Mark’s father Charles described his son as having a ‘strong character.’

He added: “As a youngster he got into the usual scrapes that boys do but nothing out of the ordinary.

“Sadly he had become more withdrawn as the years went by, spending a lot of time alone and only occasionally with friends.

“We had a good relationship, which was maintained over the years by weekly conversations on the phone.

“I am distraught he will no longer be a part of my life and I will miss talking to him greatly.”

An 18-year-old man from Rugby has been charged with murder in connection with the incident.
