Rising British model Harry Uzoka was fatally stabbed to death last Thursday in Acton, London. Uzoka was signed to Premier Model Management, who has represented a slew of superstar models such as Noami Campbell and Claudia Schiffer. One of his latest gigs involved a Mercedes-Benz photoshoot for GQ. The tragic murder of the 25-year-old darling was the result of a failed robbery.

Two men, ages 27 and 28 years old, are currently in police custody on suspicion of Uzoka’s murder. Detective Inspector Beverley Kofi of the Metropolitan Police told Independent, “This is another tragic murder with a young male victim who has met a violent death. We believe there were a number of people involved, but we are still working to establish the circumstances and a possible motive.”

Loved ones of Uzoka including artists, models and brands have voiced their heartfelt tributes on social media.
