The family of 16-year-old Louis Johnson have paid tribute to him following his tragic death at East Croydon station on Monday evening. 
Louis died after he was stabbed on the overbridge at the station. The murder investigation, led by British Transport Police detectives, continues in earnest. 
His family said: 
"Louis was only 16 he was tragically taken from us at such a young age. He had his whole life ahead of him, all the things that any teenager could wish for. Louis was generally a shy boy who kept himself to himself but he was also very popular among his peers and has left behind many friends.
"He had one true love Liverpool football club and made sure he never missed any televised event which concerned them. He also loved music of every genre and didn't care if you called him a softy for listening to love songs all day. Louis would always go out of his way to try and help or please others and would literally half his last piece of bread with you if you asked him.
"He leaves behind a huge family who are all devastated. We miss Louis dearly and will continue to miss him until we meet again in a better place. 

"We would request that our privacy be respected through this difficult period, we are beyond heartbroken.

"Rest in perfect peace Louis Christoper John Dean Johnson - 2003-2020
