Heartbroken Jamie Denyer, went on a mission after his nephew was killed by a single punch

The devastated uncle of a teenager killed by a single punch has told of his heartbreak at losing his nephew.

Connor Saunders – a pal of X Factor star Frankie Cocozza – died on April 14, 2012, when he was struck after getting into an argument with a group of teenagers.

Now Jamie Denyer, from Swansea, has revealed how his family’s lives were changed forever by the 19-year-old’s death.

Jamie’s memories of the day are still clear…
“I got a call from my sister at half one in the morning saying ‘You have got to come to Brighton,’ which is where I’m from,” the dad of three said.

“She said I had to get in the car because [Connor] had been attacked.

“I thought he had been just beaten up but was in the best place.”
