Dominic Doyle

The family of Dominic Doyle who died on Sunday in Denton have paid tribute to him.

The tribute comes as a third person was arrested in connection to the murder.

Police attended a call to Manchester Road on Sunday where they found a group of six to eight men had been fighting with two men sustaining serious injuries.

21-year-old Dominic from the Denton area later died in hospital form stab wounds sustained in the fight.

Dominic’s family have paid tribute to him saying: “Dominic Jay, known as Dom, lived with his Mum and Dad. He was a Mummy’s boy with a large extended family. He was fun, caring, loving and a cheeky chappie who was loved by everyone who knew him.

“Dom’s friends will describe him as a brother, fun loving and the heart and soul of the party.

“He had a heart of gold and would help anyone.

“His last comment on Facebook was, ‘love my life, wouldn’t change a thing. I have the best Mum and Dad and the best group of mates.’

“In Dom’s own words, ‘we live for the nights we can’t remember with the people we never forget’.

“Sleep tight our boy.”

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday night and remains in police custody for questioning.

A 15-year-old boy also remains in police custody, but no further action is to be taken against a 21-year-old man who has been released without charge.

Detective Chief Inspector Ian Crewe from GMP’s Major Incident Team said: “We have carried out extensive enquiries into the circumstances surrounding Dominic’s death and are providing all the support we can to Dominic’s family, who are understandably devastated at the loss of their loved one.

“We are still appealing for any witnesses to come forward to assist detectives in this investigation and are specifically asking for anyone who was either at or in the vicinity of Hughes’ pub on Manchester Road in Denton in the early hours of Sunday morning to please get in touch.”
