Sebastian Trabucatti not jailed for killing schoolboy Archie Lloyd

A model and club promoter has been spared jail after being found guilty of killing a schoolboy as he partied after his exams in Malia, Greece.

Club promoter Sebastian Trabucatti, 25, of West Sussex, has been found guilty of first degree manslaughter at a court in Crete over the death of 18-year-old public schoolboy Archie Lloyd.

Trabucatti punched Mr Lloyd during a row in Malia in 2015, which was later described as a ’10-second fight’. 

Mr Lloyd had shouted ‘one day you’ll work for me’ at Trabucatti in the moments before the punch was thrown, a previous inquest heard.

That same inquest, conducted in the UK in 2016, ruled that it was ‘beyond all reasonable doubt’ that Mr Lloyd had been ‘unlawfully killed’. 

The public schoolboy fell to the floor after being struck and hit his head on a curb, later dying from a brain injury.

After being hit Mr Lloyd was tended to ‘for three minutes’ by medics before being given the all-clear, the inquest was told.

That left Mr Lloyd’s best friend Andy Hutchinson, 18, and others to take him back to their villa in the Sissi region.

Mr Hutchinson said he was so concerned for his friend that he sought a second medical opinion when they got home, but the telephone number they were given did not reply.

The friends put Mr Lloyd, a gifted sportsman from Micheldever in Hampshire, in the recovery position and fell asleep at about 7am.

But they woke at midday and discovered him unresponsive with blood on his pillow.

Coroner Graham Short said at the time that had the attack occurred in the UK, it would have been considered manslaughter.

Trabucatti, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, did not attend the inquest and said at the time that he was not responsible for Mr Lloyd’s death.

Post-mortem investigations found that Mr Lloyd, who was over the drink-drive limit, suffered a swelling to the brain and a haemorrhage due to a fractured skull.

Pathologist Adnan Al-Badri told the hearing there was a chance the keen sportsman would have survived if he received hospital attention in the wake of the fall because a CT scan would probably have identified the skull fracture.
