The grandfather of teenager murdered in Luton admitted that his grandson was 'not perfect' but said he did not deserve to die.
Delaney Brown, 19, was knocked off his bike by a silver BMW on Vincent Road, Luton, earlier this month.
The damaged car had been stolen, and was found abandoned nearby. Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the killing, but have been released on police Bail.
Today Delaney's grandfather, also called Delaney, appealed for help in achieving justice for his grandson.
Mr Brown said he wanted to highlight the side of his grandson that people may not know.
He said Delaney was a talented young man who loved music and fashion and was a brilliant artist. The teenager was also a rapper, who performed under the name Delzman.
Investigating officer DCI Steve Collin said:
"My assessment of this investigation is that there are people either associated with Delaney or those involved in his death that can assist with this case but choose not to. This may be because they are scared or they see helping the police as being a ‘snitch’.
"We know not everyone likes the police, so don’t do it for us, do it for Delaney’s family. If you still choose not to help, you are the ones who will have to look Delaney’s family in the eye and say ‘I will not help you’."
