BICKLEY: Victim of suspected homophobic attack still critically ill

First published in News by

A NURSE who suffered multiple stab wounds in Bickley earlier this month remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Chris Bevan, 56, was stabbed several times on March 3 in Page Heath Villas during an attack which killed his partner, 59-year-old Gerry Edwards.

More than two weeks after the incident, police have confirmed that Mr Bevan is still in a critical but stable condition in a south London hospital with injuries to his internal organs.

Investigations into the late night assault suggest it may have been a homophobic attack.

News Shopper revealed last week that the couple’s two bedroom flat was gutted by fire while police and forensic teams were still on the scene.

Police have refused to say what caused the fire, although residents claim it may have started when chemicals used by officers at the crime scene caught light.

  • David Kilcullen, aged 46, of The Avenue, Bickley, has been charged with murder and attempted murder in connection with the incident. He will appear at the Old Bailey on June 15.
