Isaiah Usen-Satchell was stabbed to death in Sheffield on New Year's Day

During the opening of the inquest into his death, it emerged that he left his home again at around 3am and was found injured by a member of the public around an hour later.

He was taken to the Northern General Hospital but despite efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead at 2.40pm that day.

Isaiah had been slashed on his arms and legs a number of times and a wrist wound proved fatal.

An inquest into his death was opened on Wednesday, January 8 and adjourned while further enquiries are carried out.

Five Rotherham men, aged between 18 and 27, were arrested over the murder and all later released under investigation after being quizzed by detectives.

Nobody has yet been charged over the knife attack but officers are still working on the case and conducted a number of land and drain searches this week.

Anyone with information about the incident should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
