Murder of 16 yr old Dylan Holliday in Wellingborough on 5th August 2021. Incident reference 21000440001

Murder of 16 yr old Dylan Holliday

A murder investigation has been launched following the death of a Dylan Holliday in Wellingborough.

Police officers were called at about 5.45pm yesterday evening (Thursday, August 5) to Brooke Close to reports that a boy had been stabbed. Sadly, and despite the best efforts of paramedics, he died shortly afterwards.

A 15-year-old who was also stabbed during the incident was taken to hospital but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening or life changing.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Joe Banfield, said: “This investigation is moving at a fast pace and I am absolutely determined to bring those that did this to justice".

“For a 16-year-old boy to lose his life in any circumstances is tragic but to have it taken away in this manner is unbelievably sad.

Specialist officers are supporting his family at this time and they have asked for privacy while they attempt to come to term with what has happened.

“Three arrests were quickly made last night but I would still appeal for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and speak to us.

“Whilst we do believe that this was an isolated incident, high-visibility police patrols will be taking place in Wellingborough today to reassure the local community and I would encourage anyone with concerns in the area to approach one of our officers who will be happy to help.”
