Late one Summer’s evening Sophie and her boyfriend Robert were walking home. They were kicked, stamped and beaten by a group of thugs. Sophie protected Robert’s head, in doing so she suffered horrendous injuries from which she never recovered.
Sophie was murdered for nothing more than looking different.
