Tributes have been paid to Jolyon Wray who found murdered in Ryde.
Mr Wray, known as Joe to his family and friends, was found dead in a flat in East Hill Road on Monday, June 13.

“We are awaiting justice for our son.”
His daughter Violet, 14, added: “Dad, you were a good man with a gold heart, funny sense of humour, good painter, hardworking and a loving father.
“I will miss you. I love you forever and always. Taken too soon.”
