A 53-year-old man was stabbed while he was dining with a woman in Sydney, Australia. The man has been identified as Keith Collins, a businessman and a junior league president.
He was attacked by Jovi’s ex-partner, Alexander Villaluna. Pilali was able to flee to a shop nearby and is in the hospital suffering from stomach and arm injuries while Collins died on the spot.
He is charged with murder and attempted murder. The weapon used for murder is not confirmed. Superintendent Henry told ABC: “A number of people may have some CCTV footage on their mobile phones.”
“We’re appealing for anyone last night who might have heard something, seen something, filmed something or is in receipt of some of that footage to contact the Hornsby detectives.”
“We are saddened of the tragic loss of former club president & junior coach Keith Collins in tragic circumstances. Our condolences go to his family & friends,” reads a Facebook post of the Terrigal Wamberal Sharks Rugby League Club, where Collins is the president. Her daughter, Aisling, wrote an emotional message on Facebook: “I love you more than anything dad. I’ll forever be your girl no matter what.”
Sue McInnes, a friend of Collins, said, “He was an amazing man who was so full of life and meant what he said. He had many of the boys from the club working for him and treated them like family and he was generous. He said he only made money because they worked well for him.”
Pilapil was a single mom who separated from Villaluna and was looking forward to a fresh beginning. The 44-year-old stabber was arrested and taken to Hornsby Police Station. Three years ago on April 5, 2013, Collins’ 23-year-old son, Aaron died after his vehicle crashed into power pole, according to Daily Mail.
