Man stabbed at BlackBerry Jessie J party dies
The man who was stabbed at a party held by Blackberry manufacturer Research in Motion has died.
Phillip Sherriff, 37, was fatally wounded after a Jessie J performance arranged by the mobile company at the Pulse nightclub on London’s South Bank.
According to his former Linkedin profile, Sherriff started working for BlackBerry two months ago. A police statement says he was a married father of two children.
He was stabbed at an event held to promote Blackberry Messenger to an audience of competition winners, clients, celebrities and journalists (including myself). I blogged about my experience at the event last week.
Company director Ashley Charles, 25, of Nevanthon Road, Leicester, has been remanded in custody after he was charged with murder.
Jessie J linked to a message on Twitter where she said: “I am lost for words. All I can say is my thoughts, love and respects are with the family and children of the man who attended the blackberry gig last week who sadly lost his life this morning … So sad.”
