Lee Irving was 24 when he tragically lost his life under horrific circumstances on June 6th this year. Most of the people who knew him knew he was one of the kindest gentle souls you were ever likely to meet. Unfortunately that did not apply to everyone and he was subjected to months of physical and emotional abuse by persons he took to be his friends. Lee did not have the same mental capacity of an average person of his age, and the learning difficulties that he did have gave him the mental capacity of an 8 year old; making the abuse he was subjected to even more sickening and unthinkable. His family are understandably heartbroken that he has been stolen from their lives in the way he was.
