The Police said the killer used Mr Goddard’s electric guitar to attack him.
Cllr Maire Hendron said: “This was a brutal and callous murder which must be condemned by all. I am appalled that somebody could carry out such a violent attack.
“I would like to pass on my condolences to Mr Goddard’s family and friends. This must be an extremely difficult time for them, especially at Christmas.
“The people who murdered Mr Goddard are very dangerous. They must face justice in the courts for their despicable and sickening actions. If anybody has any information about this incident then I would urge them to contact the Police.”
