FAMILY and friends of murdered Christopher Butler will lay him to rest at a funeral tomorrow.

The service will take place at Havant Crematorium at 1pm and family and friends of Mr Butler are invited.

The body of 27-year-old Mr Butler was found in a house in Waverley Road, Southsea, in the early hours of New Year’s Day.

His family have previously described him as ‘a sensitive soul’ who loved football, animals and had a very active imagination.

Mr Butler had been living in Portsmouth, but grew up in Leigh Park, where most of his family still live.

People are asked to bring a flower for Chris to the funeral.

So far, five people have been arrested in connection with the case.

Brendon Willis, of Waverley Road, has been charged with murder.
