A MUM has spoken of her grief after her son was found stabbed to death.
Lou Davey, of Alyn Terrace, off Wrexham Road, Pontblyddyn, said the family was in ‘absolute shock and numb’ at the death of Fynn Western-Davey.
The 23-year-old was stabbed twice, with a fatal wound to his heart, during an incident at a house in Balmoral Park, Chester, at about 6.15pm on Saturday.
A statement was issued yesterday by Cheshire Police on behalf of Fynn’s parents, Lou Davey, headteacher of an independent school in Blacon for excluded pupils and Simon Western supported by his brother Declan and girlfriend Stacy.
It says: “We are in absolute shock and numb at the loss of our beautiful son Fynn. Fynn was an exceptional person, known and loved by many people.
“His childhood was filled with wonder, he travelled the world with his dad, climbing the Himalayan mountains and visiting China and Russia before he was 10.
“He also discovered the world with his mum through games and play, a world that Fynn made wonderful.
“As he grew up he struggled with school, which could not contain his dynamism and energy. He was an adventurer and a creative soul. As a family, we admired his resilience and ability to live life to the full. Fynn's light shone brightly to all.”
His family and friends ‘will forever be grateful for the joy Fynn brought to our lives’ it said.
More than 1,500 people have signed up to a Facebook site set up as a tribute with comments left by those who knew him.
And flowers and cards lay outside the house where Fynn, of Brook Street, Chester, was killed.
Nicola Bishop, 24, a forensic science student, and partner Jason Howells appeared at Chester Magistrates Court accused of murdering Fynn at their Balmoral Park home.
Police divers have searched the nearby canal for the missing weapon.
Howells, 34, has also been charged with possession of cocaine and heroin with intent to supply.
Both were remanded in custody to appear at Chester Crown Court on February 15.
