[object Window]: [object Window], 25, kills drinker with brutal blow to the head… leaving him brain dead BEFORE he hit the ground
This is the horrific moment a thug sucker punched a 20-year-old man and killed him in one hit.
CCTV caught Brandon Sillence, 25, launching the vicious attack on Dean Skillin outside the Waverley Hotel in Bangor, 威尔士.
The killer can be seen lurking behind his victim during a row between punters in September 2020.
But he quickly struck and thumped the youngster in the side of the head, which left him slumped on the ground.
Boxer Sillence was found guilty of manslaughter and caged for just 10 years in December.
Mr Skillin’s family have now shared footage of the merciless attack as they campaign for a tougher sentence for the killer.

Ms White told the Daily Post: ‘I wanted to put it out there that when my son was killed there was no fight or words exchanged between Dean and Brandon.’
她说: ‘Dean couldn’t even see it coming, it killed him instantly because he hit him that hard and forcefully.
‘What sort of coward hits someone from behind and leaves him on the floor, then walks away knowing the damage he had done.’
Sillence was jailed for ten years after being found guilty of manslaughter but not guilty of murder. He also admitted assault causing actual bodily harm on Mr Lock.
The court heard in December the thug hit him then boasted: ‘It was just boom, boom.’
Sillence told police: ‘I just literally jabbed. I have gone ”繁荣, 繁荣”. I just wanted them to f**k off. I was looking forward to going home to my bird, 伴侣。’
The jury heard the yob had approached the pair before punching them both in quick succession. He was later arrested and told police he was protecting a friend. 图为: The moment Sillence punched Mr Skillin

The jury heard the yob had approached the pair before punching them both in quick succession. He was later arrested and told police he was protecting a friend.
He told Detective Constable Lee Harshey-Jones: ‘Two lads were ready to go for my mate, so I slapped them both.
‘It was just a warning. I wasn’t aggressive. I have not tried to hurt anybody. I’ve hit two people.
‘I punched then both to warn them….to back off. One fell down, the other one just stumbled. But Sillence insisted he had not intended to kill anyone.
他说: ‘I am not a bionic man. I have just moved my hand forward. I did not intend anyone to die. ‘
Prosecutor John Philpotts said Mr Skillin was brain dead before he hit the floor.
他说: ‘The punch struck Dean Skillin and fractured the vertebrae, damaging the vertebral artery with the bleeding compromising Dean Skillin’s brain stem and resulting in him being brain dead before he hit the ground.’
Mr Lock said he felt a blow to the left side of his jaw before he regained his senses and saw his cousin unconscious on the floor.
他说: ‘A man was looking at me very aggressively. 他说 ”you think you’re big boys”. ‘
Caernarfon Crown Court heard a nearby police officer heard an ‘an awful, hollow thud’ as up to 40 people were leaving the pub.

Paramedics rushed Mr Skillin to hospital where a CT showed a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain. He died the next morning.
A post mortem revealed the blow had caused his skull to rotate ‘rapidly and violently’ on the top of the spine.
The court heard the violence erupted outside the pub in September 2020 after Sillence had been acting ‘aggressively.’
In a victim impact statement Mr Skillin’s father Harry said his son ‘didn’t have a bad bone in his body. He truly was the perfect son in every way.’
他说: ‘He was a lovely lad and an innocent boy.’
Ms White said her son had been ‘a strapping 6 ft 2in young man but was now in a box smaller than a shoe box in the living room.’
She said that she feels ‘anger beyond the anger experienced by other people’.
Judge Geraint Walters described Sillence as ‘aggressive, confrontational’ and being ‘the big I am’ on the night of the killing.
他说: ‘It was not a warning slap but a forceful punch by a man skilled in punching who knew the kind of damage that you we’re capable of should you chose to inflict it.’
