Male suspectMaleJordan Brennan, 17, was found unresponsive in bed by his mother the next morning.

Paramedics were called but he was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

A post mortem later found he'd died from a head injury.

Police have now released images of a man and woman they want to speak with in connection with Jordan's death.

The man and woman were in the shop at the same time as Jordan and his two friends.

As Jordan left the shop on Hyde Road he was assaulted by the man.

The female is described as of Chinese appearance, around 25 to 30-years-old, long black straight hair and of slim build.

Detective Inspector Theresa Carter, of the Major Incident Team, said: "Jordan was very well known and liked and both his family and the wider community are deeply shocked and saddened by what happened.

"At this stage we know that Jordan was assaulted outside the grocer's store, but we don't know exactly what led up to the assault.

"I would also ask that the man involved contacts the police so that we can fully understand what happened inside and outside the shop. We would also like to speak to the woman who he was with."

Jordan's mother Kim Brennan paid the following tribute to Jordan:

"Our son Jordan Brennan was 17 years old and was a well liked young man. He was a loveable rogue and was always polite and keen to help anyone who needed his help, be that physical help or just to listen to a friend.

"He would cheer them up with his usual larking about or joking around. He was a pleasure to have as a son and his loss is devastating. He was greatly loved by all that knew him."

Anyone with information that could help the ongoing police investigation is asked to call the police on 0161 856 68797 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
