Man who survived stabbing found dead at home in Hove
12:00pm Friday 1st February 2013 in News
A body-builder who survived being stabbed eleven times in a street attack has been found dead in his home.
Police were called to a house in Harmsworth Crescent, Hove, on Tuesday, January 29 after friends raised concerns over the health of Jay Henshaw.
Officers arrived at his home at 2.20pm and found the 31-year-old’s body inside the property.
Tributes were paid to the father-of-one yesterday who was a well-known member of the Cheetahs Gym in Hove.
Mr Henshaw was attacked outside Hangleton Community Centre in May 2011 and was saved by his mother.
His attacker, Earl Martin, was cleared of wounding charges four months later after he claimed he was acting in self-defence.
Friend Georgie Manzoni said: “It’s very shocking, I was only with Jay on Monday and he was full of life.
“He knew a lot of people, he had a lot of friends and we are shocked.”
Police are currently investigating the cause of his death, but are not treating it as suspicious.
Results from his post-mortem are expected next week.
