A BOY of 14 executed in cold blood was revealed to have posed with boxing champ Anthony Joshua — as his family spoke of a life snuffed out too soon.
But the wide-eyed 14-year-old is barely recognisable in a snap taken just months later – photographed sitting on a moped and hiding his face behind a skull mask as he pulls a “gun sign”.
The photos chart the tragic tale of a teen, the youngest victim of London’s horrific street crime in two years.
Just six months after moving to the capital, Jayden was mowed down by a group of three men who then pounced from the black Mercedes and stabbed him seven times in the back in Waltham Forest, North East London.
As the youngster lay dying in the streets on Tuesday night, the men sped off into the night – with police still scrambling to find those responsible for the “targeted” attack.
Pals said Jayden lived nearby on the Beaumont estate in Leyton, East London — home to the notorious Beaumont Crew gang.

They have been battling the OC Crew, from the Oliver Close estate, since 2002, with at least nine murders attributed to the feud.
Police recovered the car they believe was used in the attack last night but are still searching for the suspects in London’s fifth killing so far in 2019.
But as authorities plead with anyone with information to come forward, the teen’s family have been left numb by the violence that claimed the schoolboy’s life.
Among those left grieving for Jayden – who idolised boxing champ Joshua Anthony – was his godmother, Zoe Grant.
