Son went to watch Eagles of Death Metal two weeks ago with his cousin. Brings home how it could happen to anyone. Thoughts with all affected
The mother of a young man from Manchester has appealed for help in tracing his killers on the first anniversary of his death. 20 year old Dale Gordon was found suffering from serious injuries on Netherbury Close in Gorton after police were called to reports of a fight. He died later in hospital of head injuries. Police are offering a reward of £25,000 for information.
It has been a year since my son Dale was taken away from his family and friends and it only seems like yesterday as the pain has not gone away. I have lost a young talented loving son and I hope in my heart that there is someone out there who can assist the police with their investigation into my son's tragic death.
We have made good progress with this investigation. However, we need that key witness to come forward. It has been a very difficult year for Dale?s friends and family. Gorton is a very strong community and I am sure there is somebody out there who can provide that key piece of evidence that brings the offenders to justice.
I understand that people can feel scared about providing information to the police. GMP has a great record of supporting witnesses of serious crime and I can reassure you we will treat the information you supply with the strictest of confidence.

The United States has carried out an air strike in Syria targeting Mohammed Emwazi, the so-called Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John", a US official has told the Reuters news agency.
The US is still assessing whether the strike, which took place around the city of Raqqa, was effective, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Emwazi, a British citizen, featured in a number of the militant group's videos and is wanted for the gruesome killings of journalists and aid workers including Steven Sotloff, James Foley, David Haines, Alan Henning and Peter Kassig.
He is believed to have travelled to Syria in 2013, having graduated from University of Westminster.
On moving to the UK as a child, Emwazi's family settled in west London's Mozart Estate - one of the most notorious estates with a history of gangs and violence.
