Two men STABBED footballer to death on nightclub dance floor for ‘accidentally’ touching one of their backs


It all started from a threat, now it has become a case of murder.

Remy Gordon, 23, and Kami Carpenter, 22, conspired to kill a talented footballer on a nightclub dancefloor on Boxing Day.

One of the killers sent a death threat to the deceased on Snapchat as he vowed to make him pay for touching him on the back while they were leaving a Popworld.

Today, court pronounced the two killers ‘guilty of murdering 23-year-old Cody Fisher‘, who died in front of his girlfriend inside the Crane nightclub in Digbeth, Birmingham, just before midnight on December 26, 2022.

Witness Statement

His girlfriend, Jess Chatwin, was with him at the nightclub when he was stabbed and called the police.

‘The first thing I thought (was that) he’d been knocked out, so I was trying to wake him up. Then I thought I need to put him in the recovery position so he doesn’t choke, and that’s when I put my hand down and that’s when I felt the knife,’ she told court.

Mr Fisher was stabbed in the chest, penetrating a valve in his heart, and was pronounced dead at the scene, the court heard, while a close friend of the victim was chased and kicked but managed to get to his feet and escape.

It was a Brief and Unavoidable Contact

Prosecutors told how Gordon orchestrated the ‘awful revenge’ after the former Birmingham City academy player made brief ‘unavoidable’ contact with his back while leaving a branch of Popworld in Solihull on Christmas Eve and refused to apologise. 

Gordon sent messages to his friends asking him to help identify his victim, who he called a ‘likkle pip squeeze’, before explaining that he was ‘due to shank him up’.  A knife was then smuggled into the Crane nightclub.

Family members in the public gallery cried and stormed out of the courtroom as the jury found Gordon guilty of murder and affray after deliberating for 28 hours.

Court Ruling

Carpenter was found guilty of murder by a majority of 10 to one, was found not guilty of the same charge at the Crane, relating to an attack on a friend of Mr Fisher.

Judge Paul Farrer remanded Carpenter and Gordon into custody to await sentencing after the Easter bank holiday.

He thanked the jurors for their service and excused them from further jury service for the period of 20 years.

Fellow defendant Reegan Anderson, 19, of no fixed address, was found not guilty of murder and not guilty of an alternative charge of manslaughter but guilty of affray and was bailed until a sentencing hearing after Easter.
