Detectives investigating the murder of a teenager who died after an attack in a Liverpool street believe the answer to his death lies in the community.

Mohamed Abdul Kadir, 19 was found behind a block of flats on Princess Road, Toxteth, on 26 January 2010. He died in hospital three days later.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died of a severe head injury.

No-one has been charged over his death and Merseyside Police said the investigation remained ongoing.

One year on from his death, detectives are urging anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area at the time to come forward.

Det Ch Insp Kath Adams said: "The inquiry remains very much open and I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who came forward with information at the time.

"This was a tragic case of someone whose life was ended violently at a young age, and we still think that the key to solving it is out there.

"Even if you don't think you know anything that may be useful to us, I would still ask you to come forward - even the slightest amount of detail could be vital.

"We firmly believe that the answers lie within the local community and someone knows who is responsible for this terrible act, which has left a family devastated.

"It's not too late to search your conscience and come forward."

An inquest into Mr Kadir's death ruled he was unlawfully killed.
