Man quizzed over stabbing death of teen in UK10/06/2012 - 14:30:21
Detectives in Britain investigating the murder of a “beautiful” teenage girl were continuing to question a 19-year-old man today.
The 15-year-old, named locally as Megan-Leigh Peat, was killed at a house in Bedfordshire in the early hours of yesterday.
Police said officers attended the property after receiving a report that she had been fatally injured, but would not comment on neighbours’ claims that she was stabbed to death at a house party.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said a post-mortem examination will take place today.
Police said a murder investigation was launched after a woman died from “serious injuries” yesterday.
Officers found the body at a property in Ailesbury Road, Ampthill, at around 1.30am after receiving a report that a woman had been fatally injured.
Scenes of crime officers started a full forensic examination of the semi-detached house and the surrounding area which was expected to continue today.
Megan-Leigh’s friends paid tribute to her on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.
