Community helps raise over £4,000 for murder victim’s send off

Scott Bosley

LESS than a week after he tragically died from stab wounds on Boxing Day in Warwick, a crowd funding page set up to pay for Scott Bosley’s funeral has passed its £4,000 target.

The appeal was launched by friends just 24 hours after Scott, aged 29, was discovered with stab wounds outside a property on Kettlewell Close, in the Woodloes area of the town at around 10.20pm last Tuesday.

The fund now stands at £4,660 and was raised by people in the communuity.

Paying tribute, Scott’s long term partner Bethann said: “Boz had so many friends and he always made us laugh and smile. He was the life and soul of every party and was well known within Warwick.

“He was an amazing friend and an even more amazing partner. We were soul mates and made each other’s lives so wonderful.”

Scott’s father Clifford Bosley and sister Hayley Bosley said: “Scott was a loving son, brother, uncle and partner to Bethann. Scott was a smart, hardworking, funny, caring person who would do anything for anyone, he meant everything to us.

“This has been a huge shock for our family and left us and his friends devastated.

“We’ll always love you Scott, rest in peace.”

Scott’s mother Kathleen Francis said: “I was very proud of Scott and I will miss him very much.”

Mr Bosley’s family has appealed for their privacy to be respected at this time.

Harry Stone, aged 21, of Sutherland Close, Warwick has been charged with Mr Bosley’s murder. He appeared at Birmingham Crown Court last Friday where he was remanded in custody to appear at Warwick Crown Court on 26th January 2018.
