THE family of Jonathan Binns, who was murdered in Scarborough last week, say they have been left “devastated” by his death.
Mr Binns, 41, was found dead at an address in Eastborough on August 7. Yesterday, a statement was released by a family spokesperson, which said: “Jonathan’s untimely and tragic death has left a huge hole in our lives and we are devastated at the way he has been taken from us.
“We loved him so very much and we cannot imagine our lives without him. This is the most difficult thing we have ever had to deal with and we hope that whoever did this to Jonathan is brought to justice. We would be grateful for privacy to allow us to grieve for Jonathan.”
