Jurij was a popular and exceptionally talented student and we are heartbroken that he is no longer with us.

Jurij was from Lithuania, studying Biochemistry at University Centre Shrewsbury, and had a very bright future ahead of him.

We have been supporting the police and Jurij’s immediate family since he was reported missing. We would like to thank the police for their tireless efforts and everybody who shared earlier appeals.

All students and staff who need it at this time have been offered specialist support from the University’s Wellbeing Team and the Chaplaincy. Students and staff are taking time to remember Jurij as a friend and a gifted student. A book of condolence has been opened, to leave a written tribute in Jurij’s memory.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Jurij’s family, friends and tutors at this difficult time and we would ask for the media’s understanding that they need to grieve in private.
