A MUM whose teen son was stabbed to death at a skate park sobbed: “He was my superstar — he’d just lost his way.”

Elton Gashaj, 15, was murdered during a pre-arranged confrontation between two groups of lads on Saturday night.

Locals said the venue was the hotspot for a violent “turf war” over drugs.

Two boys of 15 remained in custody after being held in connection with Elton’s death at Salt Hill Park in Slough, Berks.

His mum, Vera Gashaj, said she had warned police that her son, who had a brother, Redon, 20, had been attacked previously after mixing with “bad people”.

She said: “I told the police my son was not safe. Two or three times he was in a fight. He had a broken arm. He told me he fell off his bike. He said he was OK. He got into the wrong crowd. He kept saying he was going to change.”


Devastated Vera, originally from Kosovo, added: “I wanted to help. He meant everything to me. He was my baby. He was my superstar.”

A mum whose two sons knew Elton said: “He was very polite. He worked hard and was the perfect student. This is a total tragedy.”

Pals posted tributes online, including one of Elton with a heart emoji on his picture.
