Two further people have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a teenager.
Detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit arrested two 18-year-old men in Luton this morning (Sept 17) in connection with the death of Micah Urquhart. The 19-year-old, who grew up in Hitchin and attended The John Henry Newman School in Stevenage, was murdered last Friday (Sept 13).
The teenager was found injured in Hastings Street, where he lived, in the early hours of Friday morning. Police attended the scene and administered first aid before being joined by members of the Ambulance Service, however, Micah died at the scene.
A post mortem has confirmed he died from a stab wound to the heart.
A 43-year-old man was arrested at a house in Hastings Street on suspicion of murder and released on police bail on Saturday.
Leading the inquiry, Detective Chief Inspector Sharn Basra, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, is continuing to appeal for witnesses to the incident to come forward.
