The parents of a Slough man hacked to death by a machete-wielding gang have paid tribute to him.

21-year-old Kyron Lee was run down by a stolen Golf on October 2, 2022.

A gang then got out of the car and chased him into Waterman Court, a residential street.

He was killed there in full view of members of the public.

Over the course of two trials, five men have been convicted over the killing.

In recent days, four of them have been jailed, with the gang set to serve a combined total of around a century behind bars.

Mohammed Elgamri, 18, of Carter Close, Windsor, was jailed for a minimum of 23 years and four months, while Fras Seedahmed, 19, of Surrey Avenue, Slough, will serve at least 21 years and four months behind bars.

Yaqhub Mussa, 21, of Daylesford Grove, Slough, was jailed for a minimum of 22 years.

Today (June 20), Khalid Nur, 22, of Graylands Close, Slough, was told he would serve a minimum sentence of 24 years and three months.

The killing rocked Slough - and now, the victim's parents have spoken out.

They both recall a 'positive, genuine' young man, and stress they may never get answers as to why he was murdered in such a brutal fashion.

Kyron Lee's father, Stephen Lee, said: "I want to express my gratitude to the barristers, DCI Roddy and the Police team that have prosecuted those responsible for Kyron’s senseless death and my family liaison officers for their continued support.

"I will never understand how it can be so easy to take a life, and destroy the lives of others too. I have not heard a single explanation as to why my son died that day.

"Kyron was a young man when he died. Just 21 years old. His whole life ahead of him. Kyron had a large loving family and so many other people that loved Kyron.

"I am touched and overwhelmed by the number of people that have paid their respects.

"The number of people that have shaken my hand and told me about their own positive experiences with Kyron, one lady telling me she loved Kyron like her own.

"Kyron would have made an amazing father himself but he will never get that opportunity to experience that unequivocal love.

“Kyron was such a positive, genuine man who, when things weren’t going well around him, made the most of life and went out of his way to help others. 

"Kyron, I miss you son. I love you son.

"I will miss your calls and text messages and especially your cheeky grin and side eye. Rest in peace."

Kyron Lee's mother, Donna Lesner, said: "I want to start by thanking the police, the CPS and the Courts for all of the work that has gone into making those responsible for killing my son to be held accountable for their actions.

"Following a number of lengthy trials, I can now grieve for my son and finally let Kyron rest in peace.

"But today is not a day to celebrate. There are no winners here and even though justice has been served no amount of years served will ever bring my son's life back.

"I've come to accept that I may never get the answers as to why they decided to take Kyron’s life in such a senseless, brutal act of violence that fateful Sunday evening.

"My only hope is that one day they understand the severity of their decisions and show some sort of remorse for taking my sons life.

"Kyron was an amazing young man, he had such a beautiful caring and selfless nature. I had so many hopes and dreams for his future and was excited at the thought of having grandchildren by him.

"There are many other things that Kyron will never get to do or be which is why it's so much more painful. Kyron had so many talents that he will never get to master.

"Kyron was more than my son, he was my rock, my biggest supporter and he made me proud to be his mother. Even in his death Kyron touched so many people’s lives and I’m thankful to everyone who has shown love and support for Kyron. We can now let Kyron rest in peace.

"Kyron's memory will forever live on with his big cheeky smile and wink that we all loved and knew. Smiling back at you son."
