POLICE in Sheffield  have named the 21-year-old man who was found with fatal stab wounds at his home in Sheffield as a murder investigation and appeal for witnesses continues.

Jordan Hill was discovered with fatal injuries after emergency services were called to a flat Southey Avenue, Sheffield, at around 9.45pm on Thursday following reports a man had been stabbed.

Mr Hill was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A forensic post mortem carried out yesterday evening (Friday March 24) concluded that Jordan died as a result of stab wounds.

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."
