Brahane YordanosInvestigation continues into murder of Yordanos Brhane 

West Midlands Police has named the victim as Brahane Yordanos

Detectives are desperately trying to trace the family of a teenager who was stabbed to death in a house in Birmingham.

West Midlands Police has named the victim - who was pronounced dead at the scene on Friday - as Brahane Yordanos.

Paramedics had found the 19-year-old in a property of multiple occupation in Unett Street, Newtown.

Nothing could be done to save the young woman, originally from Eritrea, East Africa, and a murder investigation has been launched.

Police are currently trawling CCTV to trace a man seen leaving the area.

Initial enquiries led detectives to a man known to the victim but he has since been ruled out of their investigation.

But the force has so far been unable to trace any of Brahane's family members.
It is now appealing to anyone who knew her to get in touch, so they can inform her relatives of her death.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who knows who may have been visiting her overnight on Friday.

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon, from the homicide unit, said: “Our investigation is progressing at pace, but we are struggling to find anyone who knew much about her.

“We desperately need to speak to her family to inform them of her sad death. This may also give us leads to who she may have been associating with.”

A cordon remains at the property while officers examine the scene.

Anyone with information should contact police via Live Chat on their website or call 101 quoting log 765 of 31/7.
