FAMILY and friends of a teenager found hanged in woodland have been left devastated by the death of their “Jack the lad.”
Fifteen-year-old Liam Anthony Collier was pronounced dead shortly after emergency services were called to the woods off Millhouses Street, Elsecar, at around 8.30pm on Monday (30).
The Wombwell High School student is understood to have recently lost his mum to cancer at the age of 35.
A family spokesman said: “Liam was a ‘Jack the Lad,’ he worshipped his family, his mother, his brothers and his sisters.
“Liam was a good lad, he loved life and his mates. He will be sadly missed and we are devastated by our loss.”
Police confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances.
