SISTER 'HEARTBROKEN' AFTER TWIN BROTHER STABBED TO DEATH

The twin sister of an 18-year-old man who was stabbed to death on New Year's Day has said she is "heartbroken".

Isaiah Usen-Satchell died following an altercation in the Norfolk Park area of Sheffield, South Yorkshire Police confirmed.

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.

A spokesman said emergency services were called to St Aidans Road at about 4.20am following reports of a fight between a group of men.

He said Mr Usen-Satchell was taken to hospital to be treated for slash wounds to his legs and arms but died later.

A post-mortem examination concluded that he died as a result of a knife injury to his arm, near to the wrist.

Mr Usen-Satchell's twin sister, Iman Anne Usen-Satchell, posted on Facebook: "I'm so heartbroken guys. So so so so heartbroken.

"I can't cope .... he's gone, and there's nothing that can bring him back at all.

"You were so loved by everyone Isaiah."

Miss Usen-Satchell thanked friends for the support they had shown.

"It's so satisfying and relieving to know that he touched so many people's lives and that so many people genuinely love him and feel the same heartache as his close family do," she said.

"It's good to know we have people standing by our sides the whole way!!

"Tonight was my first ever night without you on this earth with me, we grew in the womb together bro, you'll always be a part of me."

Detective Chief Inspector Jude Ashmore said: "Three men - two aged 18 and one aged 20, all from Rotherham - have been arrested on suspicion of Mr Usen-Satchell's murder and are still in police custody.

"Officers remain in the St Aidans Road area today, carrying out house-to-house enquiries and searching the area as we work to piece together exactly what happened.

"A priority for us is also establishing the victim's movements late on New Year's Eve and into New Year's Day.

"At this time, the motive for the attack isn't clear, however we do believe those involved were known to each other."

Police have asked anyone with information to call 101 quoting incident number 458 of January 1 2020 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously via Crimestoppers-uk.org or on 0800 555111.
