Murdered boy's mother appeals
The mother of teenager Kriss Donald has appealed to her son's killers to turn themselves in.

Kriss was adbucted by a gang of Asian men in Glasgow's south side on Monday and his badly beaten body was found on Tuesday morning.

Police hunting for the killers have been trying to establish a motive for the attack.

I would ask the nation for help in tracing those responsible for the murder of my son Kriss.

Five men, full of hate, and it doesn't matter to my family and extended family what colour these men are, murdered my eldest son.

Kriss's mother says her family is distraught
They have killed Kriss and taken him from his loved ones and his sister Samantha, aged 17, brother Laurie, 10, and four-year-old twin sisters Amber and Tayler.

They are distraught and finding it very hard to come to terms with the loss of their dear brother.

Kriss is gone because of gangs, not just in Pollokshields, but in every area of our communities.

However, I would urge the public not to target the Asian community because of his death.

Kriss's life and short time in our world will be for nothing if those responsible are not caught and punished for the horror they have brought to my family.

They know who they are and I would ask anyone who can help the police solve his murder to come forward.

Kriss's sister Samantha added:

My beautiful wee baby brother has been taken away from me but I know in my heart he is watching down on us and I pray to God that the men responsible are caught and punished.

Laurie, Amber and Tayler have lost their big brother who they love and look up to. He is such a big part of all our lives and we will never forget him.
