Milton Keynes stabbings: Two teenagers killed at house party
20 October 2019
Two 17-year-old boys have been stabbed to death at a house party.
Police and paramedics were called to a house in Archford Croft in Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes, about midnight on Saturday.
Thames Valley Police said the stabbings happened “at a private house party” attended by 15 to 20 people.
One of the boys died at the scene and the other in hospital. Police said no arrests had been made in the double murder inquiry.
A 17-year-old boy and a 23-year-old man were also hurt and were taken to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, the force said.
Det Ch Supt Ian Hunter said those involved in the violence “are all likely to have known each other”.
He said officers expected to remain at the scene, which is on a cul-de-sac in a housing estate, for several days.
Stains of what appeared to be blood could be seen on the front door of a house inside the police cordon.
Neighbour Suzzy Teye said she believed the gathering was a party for a teenage girl living in the house, while others said a birthday banner had been hanging at the door earlier in the evening.
Mrs Teye saw police cars and ambulances at the scene after being woken by her husband during the night.
“I was so terrified,” she said. “I’ve never seen such a scene until today.”
Another neighbour, who lives in an adjacent cul-de-sac, said: “This gang of kids have been hanging around Archford Croft, it’s all gang-related.
“I think it’s just because there was a house party and then the trouble started from there.”
Det Ch Supt Hunter appealed for “anyone who has any information which could help with our inquiries or anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity” to come forward.
“Thames Valley Police is in the early stages of a double murder investigation after two teenage boys have tragically died in this shocking incident,” he said.
“Even if you think details may be insignificant, please come forward and speak to police.”
