“After having your hair cut for 10 years, you were my friend. I wish I could have been there to help. It is something I truly feel doing what I do now. His family and friends are in my thoughts. What a beautiful soul. You will be greatly missed, Woddy. Rest in peace brother. Ezphia Rennock, a friend, wrote in a touching post: “When rivers of tears dry up. You will leave only joy and happiness behind. Your electric energy was nothing but joy.
It hurts me that this decision was made by you, and we will respect it no matter what. Your passing will not go unnoticed. You were loved and will be missed.
“They believe the planet is made of matter and energy. Therefore, when we pass our energy back into the earth, it creates new energy which is used to fuel the human body. I feel peace knowing that you will always be there as we never leave the earth completely.
The court heard that Mr Pearson was unconscious for around two-and-half minutes, and then a passerby attempted to help him. He called an ambulance and told Mr Claydon “Watch this, f***ing him”.
Mr Cole said: “Having punched him, he then in fact slammed him to the ground, followed by what is described as, and it is clear from the footage that is is, a forceful, violent stamp on the head Matthew Pearson.
“It could be that he was knocked to the ground and he was unconscious very quickly, but the stamp is, according to us, an important feature in this case.”
