Fatal stabbings seem to be a daily occurrence in London but the latest incident is one of the most shocking. A young 26 year old woman became the latest in a long line of fatalities in the capital. What makes this incident worse is the woman was heavily pregnant.
Kelly Mary Fauvrelle was 8 months pregnant before she was stabbed to death. The incident took place in Thornton Heath which is a suburb of Croydon. This is an area we know particularly well having been born and raised here.
London Ambulance Service (LAS) arrived at the scene at around 3:30 am on Saturday morning on the 29th June. The report was for a woman suffering from cardiac arrest. The first response team had no choice but to deliver the baby on the scene. Despite their best efforts, Kelly died at the scene.
Baby In Critical Condition in Hospital
Kelly’s baby boy is in a critical condition and fighting for his life in hospital.
Police have so far made two arrests in connection with the murder. A 37 year old male was taken into custody before his release pending an investigation. Another male who is 29 has since been arrested and remains in custody. The second male has also been charged on suspicion of murder.
The police say they are keeping an open mind with regards to the motive for this senseless attack. We are hoping to have more information about motive soon and will update this article once we do.
Sadly the unborn child that was in a critical condition has lost his fight for life.
The police have also set up a crime scene that is likely to be in place for some time.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan again expresses his condolences for the tragic loss of life. This is something Khan seems to do most days as the death toll rises.
Khan has sent out the following tweets in the aftermath of this incident.
Isn’t It Time Khan Considered His Position?
Khan will no doubt blame everyone else for the lawless state of London’s streets. Do we really want four more years of this arrogant self serving Mayor that refuses to accept any blame? Mayor Khan should consider his position and resign from his post as he is in way over his head.
