A MAN knifed to death at his Huddersfield home had lost his mum in a car crash just a month ago.
And police have revealed that two men have been arrested on suspicion of murdering 35-year-old Shaun Forde. He died at a house on Gilbert Grove on the Walpole estate in Crosland Moor from a stab wound on Saturday evening.
The arrested men, aged 25 and 26, were detained yesterday in West Yorkshire and were being questioned by detectives today about Mr Forde's death shortly before 8pm on Saturday.
Police are still trying to trace a car in connection with the investigation. It is a bronze Seat Leon, registration number MX51 YRD.
A post mortem confirmed that Shaun had died from a stab wound. Shaun was a private person who kept himself to himself, but police sources have revealed his mother, who lived in America, died in a road tragedy in the USA just under a month ago.
He has a brother in Bradford and his father is flying to England from his home in Jamaica. Shaun was born in Jamaica and came to live in this country when he was young and had lived in Huddersfield for several years.
Although he had a girlfriend, Shaun is not thought to have any children.
Meanwhile, people on the Walpole estate were staying tight-lipped about the events of Saturday night.
No-one was willing to speak openly. One man said: "Everyone seems to know what happened.
"People had watched the England game against Jamaica and then had parties and barbecues afterwards. The atmosphere was fine, so this came out of the blue."
Shaun lived in a cul-de-sac on Gilbert Grove, but people living nearby were reluctant to talk. Many curtains remained drawn yesterday.
Most said they did not know Shaun at all and none said they saw the events on Saturday evening unfold. One woman said: "I keep myself to myself, so honestly don't know anything."
