A 24-year-old man who died at Reading station on Saturday night (30 July) has been named as Thomas Parker, as his family pay tribute to him today.
Thomas’s family have chosen to release a tribute along with the photo below.
They said: “Tom was a very kind, thoughtful, and caring son. He was dedicated to his parents, brothers, grandparents, family and friends. He was popular, loving, funny, and hardworking; he was the life and soul of the party. His kindness and thoughtfulness touched the lives of everyone who knew him. We cannot adequately express how deeply saddened and shaken we feel about his death. He will always be in our hearts and minds wherever we are."
We would like to appeal for their privacy throughout this difficult time.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Langley added: “My thoughts are with Mr Parker’s family and friends who will no doubt be devastated by this tragic loss.
“Our investigation continues at pace and a man appeared at court this morning charged in connection to Mr Parker’s death.
“I would like to encourage any witnesses who haven’t already spoken to police to get in touch with us as soon as possible by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 665 of 30/07/22.”
