A teenage boy who planned to go to the movies with his brother was instead stabbed to death in front of his cousin.

The investigation is still ongoing after 16-year-old Pasawm Lyhym was killed Thursday afternoon at the Sunshine Station bus interchange in Melbourne’s west.

16-year-old Pasawm Lyhym (pictured) was on his way to the movies to watch the new Fast and Furious movie with his brother when he was stabbed to death Thursday afternoon

Pasawm planned to watch the new Fast and Furious movie after his brother.

“We have a group chat between siblings and I messaged them saying ‘Do you guys want to watch Fast and Furious on Thursday night?’ said Mawm on Friday morning.

“He was the first to respond, (he said) ‘yeah, let’s go’.”

Mawm learned of his brother’s death after receiving a call from Pasawm’s friend.

“I googled it. I saw nothing. I didn’t believe it until all his friends started calling and texting me on Instagram. Then I left work,” he said.

He tried to Facetim, call, and text his brother, but got no response.

He then revealed that he and his family had stayed with Pasawm’s body for hours until 12:30 a.m. when the coroner came for him.

“We couldn’t go to the coroner’s office, so we had to go home,” he said.

“He had been here for six or seven hours. In this cold weather he sat on the concrete.’

His cousin revealed to The Herald Sun that she was on a bus when she witnessed the attack.

“I yelled and said, that’s him, that’s him (her cousin),” she said.

“I tried to run and get help. I didn’t want to look. It all happened so fast.’

His family remembered him as

His family remembered him as “funny, very nice, a welcoming and friendly person” and stayed with his body for hours until just after midnight when he was taken away by the coroner.

Mawm remembered his brother as “funny, very nice, a welcoming and friendly person.”

“He didn’t do anything, life isn’t fair,” he said.

Flowers, candles and other memorials were placed by family and friends at the bus shelter on Friday morning.

Mawm urged the perpetrator to come forward and apologize to his family.

‘You come to us. We want to see you, whoever did this. I want you to apologize,” he said.

A self-named witness told 3AW that the attacker was “the one screaming.”

They also claimed to be wearing a black hoodie and fled.

Pasawm attended Staughton College in Melbourne and often visited the hub to hang out with friends after school.

Several family members gathered at the interchange on Thursday as detectives inspected the crime scene.

Pasawm’s family arrived in Australia from Burma in 2013 and have been part of Melbourne’s Chin community ever since.
