Felipe Figueiredo’s Violent Fatal Attack Over Stolen Motorbike

Felipe Diglio Figueiredo, 28, of Birleywood, Skelmersdale appeared at Preston Crown Court where the court heard how he fatally stabbed Dylan more than 23 times.

Our officers were called to Digmoor Road, Skelmersdale just after 9:00pm on 29th June 2023 following reports of a stabbing. Emergency services arrived on the scene and found Dylan had suffered multiple stab wounds. Sadly, despite their best efforts, Dylan was pronounced deceased shortly after.

Our detectives launched a murder inquiry which revealed the movements of Figueiredo, who witnesses say confronted Dylan and another man over a dispute involving a stolen motorbike.

CCTV caught Figueiredo as he left his home on the evening of the murder, after receiving a text message stating that the motorbike stolen from his property the previous evening had been sighted on the Birleywood estate.

Dylan was subjected to a brutal attack and he sustained a minimum of 23 sharp-force injuries to the head, neck, chest, back, abdomen and arms.

Figueiredo returned home just over half an hour later and called the Police at 9:30pm to hand himself in, before armed officers arrived to arrest him.

Figueiredo would later say he stabbed Dylan ‘a few times’ in self-defence. The jury today rejected that claim, after hearing the volume and extent of Dylan’s injuries as well as being shown evidence that was inconsistent with Figueiredo’s recollection of the attack.

Felipe Figueiredo will be sentenced tomorrow Friday 26th January 2024 at Preston Crown Court and we will provide more information after this time.
