Teen boy, 17, found hanged at home after 'experiment gone wrong' as pals pay tribute to 'one in a million' | The Sun

TRIBUTES have been paid to a "one in a million" teenage boy who was found hanged in what was described as an "experiment gone wrong".

Tragic Jordan Hoyle, 17, was discovered dead at his home in Huddersfield.

Distraught friends have now paid tribute to the teenager they remembered as "precious and very special".

One pal named Trinity, also 17 and from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, told Yorkshire Live he was "more than a big brother – more like a guardian".

She said: "Jordan was someone you could talk to. He was one in a million. He was precious and very special.

"He loved affection off people and he loved being around people a lot. He didn't seem to talk about his feelings. He always put other people first before himself.

"Jordan was a special one. He cared for everyone."

Jordan's mother Terri has previously hailed him as "a big softie" who would "do anything for anyone".

The teenager's body was discovered when police were called to his Huddersfield flat on March 19, 2021.

A coroner has now ruled it was death by hanging, in what was described at the Bradford inquest as an "experiment gone wrong".

Assistant coroner Crispin Oliver recorded a narrative verdict, in which he said there was no indication Jordan planned to end his own life.

He said:"I'm not convinced he intended to kill himself. People do not appreciate how quickly they will fall unconscious."

Jordan's mother Terri had told the inquest: "It was completely out of the blue.

"I don't think he meant to do it. I think he was experimenting and it went wrong."

Rosie Khan, a social worker, said at the inquest there had been "no inkling" of any cause for concern leading up to his death.

She also called him an "amazing" young man, adding: "He had such an impression on people. He had so much potential."

His friends remain shocked by Jordan's loss, Trinity now says.

She added: "It has been hard and it still is. He was the one I trusted. He wouldn't judge me. He always gave advice.

"When I was feeling low he would calm me down and tell me off but in a caring way. He just said it how it is."
