A funeral has been held for the teenage father-to-be stabbed and killed at the Sydney Royal Easter Show nearly a fortnight ago.

Uati “Pele” Faletolu was knifed in the chest while on a break from working on one of the rides at the event.

Today dozens of loved ones dressed in black gathered at the Hillsong Church in Baulkham Hills, including his pregnant girlfriend.

Mourners wore shirts emblazoned with Uati’s face and the number 12, which was on his football jersey.

A traditional haka was performed as the 17-year-old’s coffin was carried from the church, and family in New Zealand held their own service and released balloons.

Police were stationed around the complex, serving as a reminder that after 11 days the person or people responsible for the 17-year-old’s murder have not been found.

A brawl broke out after the stabbing and a 15-year-old was arrested but is not thought to be responsible for Uati’s death.

NSW Police Homicide Squad Commander Danny Doherty said investigators have combed through “hours and hours” of video footage since the attack, but have been unable to identify the person or people responsible.

“We can see that there are a significant number of people have their phones up filming this incident, not exactly the murder but at least the brawl straight after,” Detective Superintendent Doherty said.

“They may have this image now on their phone and unknowingly recorded who is responsible and have not come forward.

“We are appealing for information not only from people who were present and may have seen something unusual, but who may have actual footage that may be incredibly vital to solving who was responsible for this murder of young Pele.”
