Family's Tribute To Murdered Son

The family of a man who died after he was attacked in a Greater Manchester street have made a renewed appeal to catch his killer.

Robert Farnworth, 33, was found on Coe Street in Bolton on Easter Saturday, suffering from serious head injuries.

He had spent the day watching football with friends and was found half an hour after leaving the group at 2330 GMT. He died in Chorley Hospital on 28 March.

His parents said he was "a bundle of fun and a joy to be with."

'Big heart'

In a statement, Christine and Alan Farnworth said he "had an infectious smile that touched the lives of many people and everyone who met him remembered him fondly.

"He was a big in stature, big in personality and big in heart," they said.

Detectives say Mr Farnworth may have been killed after a robbery, as his mobile phone was missing when he was found.

They are asking anyone who may have been at the time of the attack and may have seen anything suspicious to contact them.

Chf Insp Keith Dillon said: "We are still keen for anyone with any further information on the circumstances surrounding Robert Farnworth's death to contact us.

"I would appeal to anyone who may have been in the Coe Street area between 11pm and 11.30pm on Saturday 26 March and may have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to contact us."
