Alberts Volkausks died on 24 September 2017. His death followed an horrific attack the previous day at an address on Pen Street in Boston where Officers found 44 year old Alberts with serious injuries. He was taken to Pilgrim hospital for treatment where he sadly died.

Yesterday three men were found guilty of murder and two found guilty of manslaughter following a trial at Nottingham Crown Court.

The jury heard that Alberts had been lured to the address, tied up, severely beaten and urinated on. He was subject to a prolonged assault, during which the guilty men adopted a pack mentality. Although he initially survived, he died within 24 hours of the ordeal.
