Another day, another senseless killing of a local teenager, this time in Yoke Close off North Road last night (Monday night). I’m lost for words really.
The police have said
‘A murder investigation has been launched following the death of a male in Holloway.
Police were called at approximately 20:50hrs on Monday, 23 November to reports of a male stabbed in Yoke Close, off North Road, N7.
London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance also attended. The male – aged 17 – was pronounced dead at the scene at 21:22hrs.
Officers believe they know the identity of the deceased and next of kin have been informed.’
At this early stage, anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
This terrible crime took place only a few hundred metres or so from where Ben Kinsella was killed and about three quarters of a mile from where Alan Cartwright was killed. I’ll update my piece documenting broad Kings Cross area murders where there still seems to be no solution in sight.
