Murder Investigation Update – Thames Valley Police
As our investigation continues into the murder of a 16-year-old boy in Milton Keynes yesterday afternoon (11/2), we are now able to provide further clarification on where the incident took place.
The victim was stabbed near the junction of Palace Square and Rainbow Drive in Leadenhall. After being stabbed, he then moved towards the Chaffron Way campus of Milton Keynes College and collapsed on the redway outside.
Healthcare students and a member of staff from the college who were in a class overlooking the redway made their way outside and provided immediate first aid, until emergency services arrived.
These students are now receiving specialist support from the college and we would like to publicly commend the courage and selflessness that they have demonstrated in these tragic circumstances.
We are continuing to appeal to anyone who has any information that may assist with our murder investigation to make contact with us either online or by calling 101 with reference number 43220064415.

Yesterday, we arrested an 18-year-old man from Milton Keynes on suspicion of murder and he is still in police custody.
We are continuing to carry out additional patrols across the town, however we do not believe there is any threat to the wider community.
