Tragically, a disk jockey, Derek Wilkie died after being punched by a 36 year old man. The DJ refused to play the song that the attacker request and this is what happened.
He died week after this incident. While it is unclear of the exact motive of the attack, first-hand reports from Dick state that he did deliver one strike to the DJ after exchanging a series of words.
The attacker, Lyall Dick did not intend to kill the victim with his strike. Derek was taking blood thinning medication to combat a deep vein thrombosis that would make it difficult to slow down any bleeding that would occur.
The attack happened back in September and is just now being processed by the Perth Court System. Instead of charging the man with murder, the system decided that they could not prove that the attack was the leading cause of death, and they merely fined him 300 euros for the assault on Hamilton, and 600 euros for attacking Mr. Wilkie.
The court must follow further investigations regarding the course of death. Hearts and thoughts go out to the family and friends of everybody involved.
