Aussie dad was allegedly MURDERed while fishing ‘by stranger’


A beloved father-of-three who was allegedly stabbed to death on a pier has been remembered as a ‘kind and gentle soul’ by loved ones.


Andres Pancha, 45, was fishing on Frankston Pier when he was allegedly attacked by homeless man Forrest Stevenson, 36, just after 6am on Saturday.

Police said the men were not known to each other.

Stevenson was arrested on the nearby foreshore a short time after the alleged attack with Mr Pancha found unresponsive on the pier.

Mr Pancha visited the fishing spot in Victoria’s southeast once or twice a week. 

His friend and former colleague Lee Seddon took to social media to pay tribute to the beloved fisherman. 


‘Had the pleasure to work and sail with Andres Pancha on the Iron Chieftain. He was a true gentleman. Loved his fishing and young family,’ he said.

‘So shocking to hear he has been taken so young and in this terrible way. 

‘Fair winds and smooth seas.’

Another friend said he had only recently spoken with Mr Pancha.

‘Still young and already gone, RIP Andres Pancha. We will miss you,’ Cor Glover said.
