Paying tribute to her brother, Jayda James said in a Facebook post that Jaydon died simply because of the neighbourhood he lived in.

She wrote: Jaydon was the sweetest, funniest, most kind-hearted boy. He didnt fight, he wasnt part of a gang, he was friends with everyone and tried to keep the peace whenever he could.
