Frankie Victor Prineas has been identified as the 27-year-old man who was stabbed in Charnwood over the weekend.
His name has been released after a suppression order expired.
His father, Victor Prineas, said he was proud of his son. “Frankie was a son that any parent would have been extremely proud of,” he said. “My wife and I would like to thank our entire family and our beautiful friends who are here for us in this most difficult time. Losing a child is not something any parent should go through and i would not wish this pain on anyone. We have attended the first day in court where we hope, ultimately, Frank will get the justice he deserves.”
The young man’s family and friends are holding a cruise on 1 February to pay their respects to the young man who was very involved in the car community.
