Images have been released of two people police would like to speak to after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed to death.

Deshaun James Tuitt was killed in Highbury Fields shortly before 9pm on August 4, 2022.

More than 18 months later, police are continuing to investigate the murder and an appeal has been launched to speak to two males.

Detective Chief Inspector Joanna Yorke said: “We are still investigating the death of Deshaun and we know that a large number of youngsters and adults were in the area where Deshaun was attacked. We believe its likely that there is someone who will recognise the two males seen in these images.

"I urge anyone who has information about them, or about the Deshaun’s murder, to please do the right thing and get in touch either in person or anonymously. His family are desperate for answers and we are doing everything we can to get them the justice they need."

In a shared statement to the Met Police, his family said: “Deshaun was a son, brother, nephew and cousin and the whole family are devastated by his death.

"We, as a family, understand that people are scared to come forward and speak to the police. We urge people to do the right thing. This is not an insignificant crime, it’s a murder and someone knows what happened that day. Justice won’t bring Deshaun back but at least we, as a family, can know what happened.

“We can’t stress enough how important it is to come forward if you have any information that can help the police.”
