Tribute paid to Paisley boy with 'big, loving heart' found dead in flat by council director

Renfrewshire Council's director of children's services has paid tribute to "loving" four year old, Kayden Frank.

Kayden was found dead at a flat on Argyle Street in Paisley on Monday evening, along with a 38 year-old man. Following a post mortem examination, his death is being treated as a murder.

A 38 year-old man, named locally as Steven Frank, was also found dead at the scene - his death is not being treated as suspicious and police say they have no information that indicates anyone else's involvement.

Steven Quinn spoke before a board meeting earlier today at his early learning and childcare centre, addressing the tragic news of Kayden's passing as he confirmed he was "known to social work", reports the Daily Record.

In a tribute to the four year-old he said: "First of all, it is with great sorrow I speak to you this afternoon to let you know that one of Renfrewshire’s children Kayden Frank, aged four, has very sadly died.

“Kayden was known to social work and also attended Douglas Street nursery and has been described by his head of centre as a lovely boy, endowed with an amazing sense of humour, always smiling, singing and dancing. He was the best at giving cuddles with a big, loving heart. He also loved jumping in puddles at the forest kindergarten and baking scones.

“Our thoughts and our prayers are with Kayden’s family at this time and we will continue to support police with their enquiries.”

Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Thomson of the major investigation team, said: “Our thoughts are with Kayden’s family and friends, along with everyone affected by this tragedy.

“We are providing his family with specialist support at this incredibly difficult time and officers are continuing enquiries to try and get some answers for them.

“Kayden’s family have requested that their privacy is respected at this time.”

Enquiries are ongoing and a report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.
