Arrests made in connection with stabbing to death of 9 year old girl

Two people have been arrested in connection with the stabbing to death of a nine-year-old girl in the town of English Bazar.

Medics and police responded Thursday evening in Boston, Lincolnshire, after the injured girl was found stabbed in the street.

He could not be saved and Lincolnshire Police launched a murder investigation that “shook the local community to the core.”

Investigators revealed that two men were arrested in connection with the stabbing, which they believe to be “an isolated incident.”

Speaking at the scene the next day, Chief Superintendent Kate Anderson said: “Officers were called to the scene at Fountain Lane at around 6:20 p.m. yesterday.

“We believe that a 9-year-old girl has died as a result of knife wounds. We have arrested two people in connection with the incident.

“We recognize that this is an isolated incident and we are conducting a comprehensive investigation and have given many resources to this investigation.

“You will see more officers patrolling the area and we have a large number of specialist detectives who have been brought in to assist with the investigation.

“As I have said, we believe that this is an isolated incident and we are not in a position to name the victim yet.

“Their parents are being supported by specially trained officers in this difficult time and I can only imagine the grief and pain they are going through.

“Her welfare and the welfare of those she knew are a priority for us.

“We ask the media to respect the family’s right to privacy during this difficult time.

“We would also ask people to refrain from speculating on social media about an extremely sad situation and a live investigation.

“Both the public, the police and his family would like to hold the responsible people accountable.

“If people have any information, I would appeal to witnesses, or people in the area at the time, or people with dash-cam footage to contact the police on 101, quoting 419 of the July 28 incident.

“Any piece of information, however small, can be vital to ensuring justice for this child.

“While we have officers to reassure the community if you have any issues or concerns please contact your local neighborhood police teams.

“This area is currently cordoned off and will remain closed while our crime scene officers gather all necessary evidence.

“This incident has shocked our community in Boston and I want to reassure the community that we are doing everything we can to advance the investigation and support the family.”

The little girl’s body was found on the side of a quiet alley outside MS Agriculture Services, next to quaint streets lined with cafes and coffee shops.

A person answering the business number hung up when Zenger arrived.

Heartbroken locals expressed their horror at “the most shocking tragedy ever in their city”.

Taxi driver Jonathan Newton, 55, said: “We are a close-knit community here and the city has been completely shaken by this tragedy.

“She was just a little girl, how can anyone do that to a nine-year-old? This is the most shocking tragedy our small town has ever seen. I’m just speechless.”

Another local resident, who did not wish to be named, said: “We’re not sure what happened, but it’s a quiet street so I can’t imagine many people have seen it.

“Although there are businesses with CCTV cameras, so I just pray that whoever did this gets caught fast. My heart is breaking for that girl’s parents.

“I’ve seen people who don’t know family even today in a flood of tears.”

A forensic tent could also be seen in the street, while officers searched for clues at the scene in the shadow of the historic St. Botolph’s Church.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police previously said: “We have opened an investigation into the murder.

“The area has been cordoned off and we will be at the scene for the foreseeable future.

“The young girl’s parents have been notified and our thoughts are with them at this incredibly difficult time.”
