A SHRINE of flowers, teddy bears, candles and empty rum cans mark the spot at a Park Ridge service station where Brodie Smith died after being stabbed.
Police believe the 21-year-old was involved in an attempt to steal drugs and money when he was stabbed with a knife on June 13.
He staggered 200m up Chambers Flat Rd to the United Service Station driveway where he succumbed to his injuries about 2.30am.
South Eastern Region regional crime co-ordinator detective Superintendent Dave Hutchinson said police had recovered a white commodore and a knife within the vicinity of the attack.
"At what we believe to be the primary crime scene, we have located a number of items including a knife," Supt Hutchinson said.
"A person who was assisting us with our enquires did have the vehicle and we currently have that in our possession."
On a wooden cross located outside the petrol station, messages of love were left for Mr Smith.
One message, written by the victim's mother read, "My precious babi boy, you were taken away from me too soon...Always in my heart, always in my mind. Love mum xoxo".
Speaking outside the service station on the day of the attack, AJ Lansky and Matthew Sinclair, friends of Mr Smith, fought back tears as they remembered their long-time friend.
"He was a good bloke and would take his shirt off his back for you," Mr Lansky said.
Mr Sinclair also struggled to find the words to describe his mate.
"He was everything- I'll remember him as a top bloke," he said.
Police have charged three people with his murder, a 22-year-old woman from Marsden, a 22-year-old man from Marsden and a 20-year-old man from Regents Park.
After a brief appearance in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Thursday, June 14, their case was adjourned to July 5.
