“He was known to many of his mod mates as ‘Mooncat’ which he is still remembered by today.

“He became a DJ in pubs and clubs. He was well known as ‘DJ Elite’ and his favourite place to play was at Bowlers in Manchester.

“As a family we are devastated that he has been taken from us before his time, and we hope that those who are responsible for taking his life will be brought to justice.

“We would also like to thanks Humberside Police for supporting our family through this difficult time.”
