The family of the teenager that was stabbed to death while on holiday in Greece arrived on Zakynthos where their son died last Wednesday.
Former England football mascot Robert Sebbage, 18, from Tadley, had been on holiday with a group of friends. The 21-year-old taxi driver that was charged with his murder is said to have confessed to the stabbing. Robert came to Greece on his first holiday abroad without his parents. He and his four college friends were attacked in the early hours of last Wednesday at the Laganas resort on the island, also known as Zante.
All five suffered knife wounds. Sebbage fatally, and one of his friends seriously
The taxi driver, Stelios Morfis committed the crime after a row with the British tourists.
According to sources, he was grilled by the police yesterday for the crime he committed and when he left the police station he was flanked by officers with a jacket over his head so as to hide from photographers.
His father Danny Morfis, 53, was waiting outside the police station. Speaking to the Mirror, he said: “Stelios feels terrible about what happened. He’s been crying every day in his jail cell. “He never meant to kill Robert. I feel awful for his family. If I met his father I wouldn’t be able to look him in the eye. He revealed that his son keeps saying, ‘I never meant to kill the boy, I’m so sorry. I’ve ruined my life.
The distraught father, who is also a taxi father, said that his son, who at 6ft 3in would have towered over Robert, had confessed “straight away”. He said: “He was scared. He lashed out with a knife because he was surrounded by boys. He didn’t even realise he’d hurt Robert badly. The knife is very small and belongs to me. It’s just a penknife. “Now one boy has lost his life and my son will be in jail for a long time, perhaps.”
