Jaydon’s family have released this statement: “Jaydon had such a sharp wit that could make anyone burst into laughter.

“Jaydon was so transparent; you always knew where you stood with him. He was not afraid to speak his mind and be true to himself and tell those he loved that he loved them every day. Whether it was cracking jokes or sharing his thoughts, Jaydon was always a joy to be around and spend time with which is reflected in his family and friends who adored him.

“Jaydon’s cheeky smile and infectious loving nature will be remembered by those who loved him dearly.

“Jaydon was a cherished son, a loved nephew, an adored grandson, godson. Loved by all. A full life in short years that will leave a lifetime of lasting memories.”

Detectives are continuing to piece together what happened to Jaydon and his death is being linked to the death of 16-year-old Diego, but we are not looking for anyone else as part of the investigation at this time.

A gun that was found at the same time and in the same area as Jaydon is being forensically examined.

An initial forensic post mortem examination has taken place but further tests are being carried out to establish how he died.

Det Inspector Gavin Green, from our homicide team said: “This is a complex investigation and a tragic set of circumstances. My sympathies truly remain with the families of both boys.

“The investigation is ongoing and we ask that anyone who has information, and hasn’t spoken to us, should contact us.”
