Heir to £230m pie fortune, 23, charged with stabbing best friend to de@th on Christmas Eve

A man who has been charged with murder for allegedly stabbing his housemate to death on Christmas Eve is the heir to a £230million pie company fortune, it has been revealed.

Dylan Thomas allegedly knifed 23-year-old William Bush, who was found with fatal injuries in a car park next to Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff at around 11.30am on December 24.

Thomas, 23, is the grandson of Sir Gilbert Stanley Thomas — the Welsh tycoon behind a business empire that included Peter’s Pies.

He is said to have been best friends with William and attended the same private school as him – Christ College in Brecon.

The pair later moved in together, sharing a nearby terraced house which was owned by Thomas’ grandparents and Welsh rugby legend Sir Gareth Edwards.

Thomas moved into the house two years ago, a report said.

He is reported to be a computer programmer and health food fanatic.

William, who is said to have been a surveyor with a local commercial property firm, moved into the shared home soon after.

His family are reportedly from Brecon and he is said to have been a keen rugby player and golfer.

Following news of his death, William’s family said in a statement:

‘Our beloved Will was taken away from us in such a cruel and indescribable way. Will was such a loyal, funny and caring son, brother and boyfriend.’

‘We are absolutely devastated and as a family request that our privacy is respected at this difficult time.’

Thomas is due to appear in court next month.

He had been set to appear at Cardiff Crown Court on January 2, but was remanded in custody in his absence and is not set to appear again on February 2.
