Tributes have been paid to a 20 year-old West Midlands man who was stabbed to death.
Tom Coombs Duffield, who lived in Stone Cross, West Bromwich, died after being stabbed five times in the chest, stomach and back.
He had been expecting his first child with girlfriend Stephanie who is six months pregnant.
Tributes were flooding on to the social networking site bebo where Tom, who was known as Duffy, had a personal page.
Flowers and condolence cards covered the spot on Butstleholme Lane at the junction with Bustleholme Avenue where Mr Duffield was attacked.
A moving poem left by his mother Sarah on the kerb-side said: "Like my angel you were, you had one too up there in Heaven.
"Your angel missed you. One day without warning your angel came down, lonely no more for your soul he had found.
"He took you back home lifted you high without even a chance to say goodbye."
A dedicated tribute page called 'Rest in Peace' was set up within hours of his death on bebo.
Police believe Mr Duffield, a former pupil at Manor Foundation High School, in Wednesbury, got into an argument with a person he knew when walking along the road. He was treated for his injuries at the nearby Sandwell Hospital but died at 1am on Friday morning.
Officers are questioning a 21 year-old man in connection with the attack but have released a 21 year-old woman without charge.
The devastated family were too grief stricken to speak but Lynne Wiltshire, 59, the manager of the family's local convenience store said: "He was just a run of the mill lad. He was never in any trouble and we never had problems with him here.
"People have said they carry knives because they feel more safe. But if you have got a knife on you then you must intend to use it.
"I just do not know when it is going to end. "Everyone is just shocked. What is the Government going to do about it?
"We can't keep losing young lives like this." Neighbours of Mr Duffield expressed their dismay at what had happened. Education consultant Jackquie Blake said: "I'm absolutely totally shocked. I have been in this area for more than 30 years and I have never known anything like it."
