"Carl was an amazing son, brother, uncle, nephew and boyfriend who idolised his true love Lakyn.

"Carl was a mummy's boy who loved his pops.

"He would do anything for anyone and had a heart of gold.

"His family and Lakyn were his world.

"Carl was no angel - he was our lovable rogue.

"At this difficult time we would appreciate the time to grieve and comprehend the loss of Carl in this cold-blooded murder."
