Anniversary appeal to catch killer of Wolverhampton teenager
Detectives investigating the murder of Wolverhampton teenager Keelan Wilson have launched a fresh plea for information a year on from his death.
The 15-year-old was discovered with fatal stab wounds following reports of disorder in Langley Road, Merry Hill, at around 11pm on 29 May last year.
A dedicated team of detectives continue to work diligently on the case as the force leaves no stone unturned in the pursuit of Keelan's killer or killers.
So far, nine teenagers have been arrested in connection with his murder and released under investigation as enquiries continue.
Officers are now re-appealing, on the 12-month anniversary of his sad death, for anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mallett, from the force's homicide team, said: "It is exactly a year on from Keelan's tragic death and we are just as determined now, as we were then, to get justice for his family.
"This is a complex investigation and there is ongoing work which is not always visible to the public.
"However, we continue to need your help in catching Keelan's killer or killers. I appreciate there may have been people who didn't feel they could speak to officers at the time due to a sense of misguided loyalty.
"But this a 15-year-old boy, who had his life ahead of him, who has been taken away at the hands of a knife and we need to ensure justice prevails. Any piece of information, however insignificant you feel it is, could be crucial in cracking the case."
Anyone with any information should call police on 101, or via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
