Melbourne man Spiros Filidis remembered as ‘beautiful soul’ after random fatal stabbing


Spiros Filidis, the Greek man who was tragically stabbed on his way to the shops in Melbourne’s south east on Tuesday, has been remembered today as a “beautiful soul” by his heartbroken family.

The 46-year-old Greek man was found on the side of the road at the corner of Little Avenue and Widdop Crescent, Hampton East, just after midday on Tuesday with upper body injuries. Emergency services performed CPR, but he died at the scene.

Investigators were quick to establish a crime scene and charged a 27-year-old Moorabbin man with one count of murder on Thursday afternoon.

Family and friends have since paid tribute to Mr Filidis, describing him as a nice man, who had twice battled cancer and lived with an intellectual impairment.

“Our beloved Spiros was a beautiful soul who touched the lives of all who knew him,” Spiros’ devastated sister, Eve told the Herald Sun.

“His presence lit up the room, wherever he went. Our hearts are broken. He will be forever lovingly missed.”

The accused 27-year-old man from Moorabbin will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today.
