Police have found a car that is believed to have been used in the murder of a 14-year-old boy in east London.
Jayden Moodie died yesterday night after being rammed off his moped and stabbed multiple times in Waltham Forest, Leyton.
Detectives confirmed they found a black Mercedes B Class in the Carlisle Road area of Leyton and said they were waiting for forensic recovery.
Homicide and Major Crime Command Detective Chief Inspector Chris Soole said: We are treating the recovery of the car as a significant development in our inquiries, which are still very much in their early stages.
Jaydens family are being fully supported and kept updated by our team. This is a truly heartbreaking time for them and we are doing everything we can to find out who was responsible for Jaydens death.
Police said they believed Jayden was the victim of a targeted attack.
Jaydens godmother Zoe Grant paid tribute to him earlier today from her home in Nottingham.
She said the teenager had recently moved from the East Midlands to London to be closer to some of his family.
He was full of life, fun loving and a ray of sunshine, Ms Grant said.
He was a beautiful boy, so intelligent and had everything to live for.
He went to London and then this happens, its just so unfair. He was very dearly loved by everybody.
Ms Grant, who found out Jayden was dead after talking to his mum, said there needed to be more police on the street and things for young people to do in order to stop the violence.
Police confirmed they had stepped up neighbourhood patrols close to where the teenager was murdered.
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
