RIP Chris, nobody deserves that and it takes a real coward to carry a knife.
I'm also a Leeds United (soccer) fan and we lost two of our fans ten years back in Turkey before a key game. similar situation where innocents were murdered in an unprovoked attack. Guys I'd been to games with, good guys, fathers, sons, brothers.
Nobody desewrves to lose thier life over this, nobody.
This season is for you. Go Bears

Here's an update:
I like this part.
William Pettry had flown from Milwaukee to Jacksonville
, Fla., for the Bears
game against the Jaguars
with his best friend, looking for a good time.
He never made it to the football game. His life ended at a bar early Sunday when police said a Jacksonville man, Matthew Hinson, 27, slashed Pettry’s throat “cold-bloodedly” after he talked to Hinson’s wife.
Pettry, 42, and a father of three, died at a nearby hospital.
Witnesses told police that Hinson “cut the victim and calmly walked out of the establishment,” putting the knife in his pocket.
That explains the 'look' he was sporting...
Police stopped Hinson before he pulled out of the bar parking lot in his truck, and he scuffled with officers. “He resisted a little bit,”
Jacksonville County Police Lt. Rob Schoonover said at a Monday news conference.
Sounds like someone wasn't feeling 'adequate' in the Jeans Department.
Police said Hinson admitted to the killing but wouldn’t say why he did it. Police said the killing was not sports-related.
Pettry was a construction worker and “such a huge Bears fan. ... He never got to go to the Bears game, he never got to enjoy it," his cousin, Quincy Asbury Jr., told the Chicago Tribune
In a Facebook post that has since been taken down, Pettry’s wife, Karen, posted that “I'm so numb and I still can not believe it is true. Today my husband William Christopher Pettry (Most of you only know him by Chris) was taken from his family way too early. Some idiot has taken his life. I’m so mad, just don’t understand why, very lost right now. Please hug the ones you love because you never know if tomorrow you will have that chance.”
Her profile featured a white construction van covered with painted hand prints and the words "#1 Daddy We Love you!" Police said that at the bar, Hinson saw Pettry and a friend talking to Hinson’s wife and another woman. At one point, police said, Hinson was sitting on a bench with Pettry, then stood up and cut his throat before walking out.
Hinson had no criminal record with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department outside of a few traffic tickets, according to ActionNewsJax.com
He'll have plenty of time to contemplate this while doing time on the Tree Of Whoa Dude, You Did NOT Just Put That Up There!
