Friends have paid tribute to Joshua. Azra Valentino, 18, said although Joshua associated with people who were "a little bit edgy", he was a good person with the "cutest smile" and "wasn't like that":

"We're all just shocked. When I see this, I can't believe it really. I'm just shaken up. I don't know what to do.

"Josh was the last person who you'd think would be on the news for a death or something, he wasn't like that. He got caught up in it."

– Azra Valentino

"I have known him for six years, and he's always smiling. He's a good person. He's such a good person, everyone likes him."

– Tyler Sullivan, 17
