A murder probe was launched after Jordan Hill, aged 21, was stabbed to death near his home in Southey Avenue, Longley, on Thursday night.

Police today appealed for information about a silver car seen near his flat that evening between 9pm and 10pm.

Detective Chief Inspector Victoria Short, who is leading the murder investigation, said: “Our officers and staff have been working relentlessly over the last couple of days to establish what happened in Jordan’s home on Thursday evening.

"From our enquiries so far, we understand a silver car was seen in the vicinity of Jordan’s flat that evening and therefore I’d like to hear from anyone who may have seen this vehicle between 9pm and 10pm on Thursday in the Southey Avenue area.

"I'm grateful to the local community for supporting the police investigation and to those people who have already volunteered information. We are keen to hear from anyone who may live locally who is yet to come forward, who may have witnessed suspicious activity in Southey Avenue that night.

"The smallest detail, which may not seem important to you, could be very useful for our inquiry so please get in touch with police.

"Jordan’s family are understandably devastated and have asked that their privacy be respected at this incredibly difficult time."

The fresh appeal came as a post-mortem carried out yesterday concluded Jordan had died from stab wounds.

Emergency services were called to a flat in Southey Avenue at around 9.45pm on Thursday following reports of a stabbing. Jordan was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
