Flowers and messages, along with children's toys, surround a tree in Southey Avenue, Longley, outside the flat where 21-year-old Jordan was found on Thursday (March 23) night.

Perhaps the most moving words are those written on a piece of blue card and surrounded by painted stars which appear to be the work of a young child.

"It's not a goodbye, just we'll see you soon," they read.

"Who will I moan at now? Who will I nag! So many questions left unanswered!

"Family, I love you unconditionally and they'll pay whoever did this.

"I love you and I wish I had one more chance to tell you.

Jordan Hill

"Love you Jords," concludes the message, signed off 'your girls'.

One bouquet contained photos showing Jordan holding a baby aloft and giving a young child a piggy back.

Other notes express their grief at the loss of a 'beautiful nephew and cousin', a 'stunning bro' and a 'top man'.

Another, sifgned Regi, says: "Can't believe you're gone. You were one of the first lads I met when I moved onto the estate.

"We had many a good laugh along the way. Gonna miss you bro. Fly safe."

The flat where Jordan was found, before being taken to hospital where he died, remained cordoned off on Sunday afternoon.

There was still a heavy police presence at the scene, with three police cars and the same number of vans.

No one has so far been arrested and detectives have appealed for witnesses to get in touch.

They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a silver car in the area on the fateful night, between 9pm and 10pm.

One woman, who asked not to be named, told on Sunday how she had lived on the estate for 30 years and other than the odd bit of mischief from youths there had never been any trouble.

She had not known Jordan but said friends who did described him as a 'nice lad'.

"I've shed a few tears today thinking what his mother must be going through on Mother's Day," she added.

Another neighbour, who also declined to be named, said the community was in shock but claimed crime had been getting worse in the area over the last two to three years.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
