Mum’s vigil for Eddie

POLICE are continuing to investigate the fatal stabbing of 19-year-old Eddie King Muthemba Kinuthia last summer.

The attack on Eddie in Grosvenor Road Triangle Park, St Paul’s, just before 11pm on Friday 21 July was featured on BBC’s Crimewatch Live last month and his mother Irene Muthemba held a vigil in Bristol city as the search for clues continues.

Three men arrested on suspicion of murder in the weeks after Eddie was stabbed remain on police bail but no one has as yet been charged over his death.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Almond, who leads the investigation, said: “It is incredibly hard for Irene and all Eddie’s family that the enquiries into his death are yet to result in a positive outcome. We’re still working very hard to identify and speak to potential witnesses and find that last detail, that piece of information which will bring the right person to justice.

The independent charity Crimestoppers has offered a reward of up to £20,000 for information given through its 100 per cent anonymous reporting system which leads to a conviction.  Call 0800 555 111 or go online at
