The victim, named locally as Alciveadis Mauredis, known by his neighbours on the Elthorne Estate for driving a distinctive sports car, was taken to hospital with critical injuries after being found unconscious at an address in Beachcroft Way early on July 13.

Police believe he was assaulted at about 1.10am that day outside the Royal Oak pub just off St John's Way.

One neighbour, who gave his name only as Brahim, told the Gazette: "We talked a lot me and him, but I never asked his name.

"He was a funny guy, very talkative — and loud. He was very friendly, not aggressive or anything. He was friendly with everyone and cracked jokes. It's very sad."

He heard there had been a "quarrel" outside the pub, and said police later came and "boarded up" the man's flat. He said the man was Greek and drove a "small Corvette".

"He had some fast car. I've lived here for four years but only spoke with him twice. He was a friendly guy.

"The caretakers told me what happened - they told me he got involved in a fight and had been on machines [in hospital]."
