Facebook tributes pour in for murdered Stevenage man

TRIBUTES have been pouring in for a Stevenage man who was murdered on Tuesday.

Mark Butler, of Burydale, died after sustaining a fatal stab wound following an incident inside a house in Bowcock Walk at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.

Friends of the 32-year-old, known to many for his DJ-ing talent, have set up a group on social networking site Facebook to remember Mark, which has already reached more than 300 members since its creation on Wednesday.

Writing on the wall of the group, named ‘R.I.P Mark Butler (It’s better to burn out than to fade away)’, Lex Lewis said: “I can’t believe this has happened mate! The world has lost someone great, sadly lost, but NEVER forgotten. R.I.P.”

Emma Clifford wrote: “Lovely guy, amazing dad and boy you could spin some tunes...remembering the good times. r.i.p darling. x.”
