Name: Colin Oliver “Ollie” Wells.
Died: January 6, 2020.
Age at death: 18.
Cause of death: Murder (Stabbed).
Location: Newhaven, East Sussex, England, UK.
Though a much loved member of his family, Ollie’s special needs couldn’t be provided for at home, so he lived in residential care. His family remembers him as vulnerable and often misunderstood, but a wonderful son who will be greatly missed. He “enjoyed many activities including horse-riding, sports and playing his flute, drums and guitar [and]… was also a very keen supporter of Chelsea football club.”
Ollie was stabbed to death by a 16-year-old who knew him. He had been staying with the other teen’s family at the time.
