A pizza delivery man found stabbed to death at the wheel of his car was making his final delivery before starting a new job.

Thavisha Lakindu Peiris, 25, was found dead by colleagues in his car on Southey Crescent, Sheffield, at 22:30 GMT on Sunday.

South Yorkshire Police said he had just accepted a new job as an IT consultant.

Officers said a number of men arrested have been questioned and released without charge.

Mr Peiris, who was born in Sri Lanka, had been working at Domino's Pizza on Halifax Road to fund his IT studies at Sheffield Hallam University.

'Untold grief'

He left the restaurant at 21:50 to make a delivery in Southey Crescent and when he failed to turn-up colleagues set off to find him.

They found him dead in his Toyota Yaris outside the address where he was due to make the delivery.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Peiris died from stab wounds.

Det Supt Lisa Ray said no motive had yet been established for the murder.

She said: "Thavisha Lakindu Peiris was a bright, hard-working, intelligent and caring man who had worked hard to develop his career in Sheffield.

"His murder is an absolute tragedy and has caused untold grief for his mother, father and brother in Sri Lanka and for his many friends in Sri Lanka and in Sheffield."

Ms Ray said his family were preparing to travel to Sheffield from Sri Lanka.
