The boy who died at a property in Bath at the weekend has been identified as aspiring drill rapper Mikey Roynon. Emergency services attended an address on Eastfield Avenue shortly after 11pm on Saturday following reports someone had been stabbed. Sadly, Mikey, 16, from Kingswood, was unable to be saved and died a short time later at the scene.
A post-mortem examination has been carried out and confirmed Mikey, who was known by his rapper name “YM” died from a single stab wound.
Three boys – a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old from Wiltshire and a 15-year-old from Dorset – remain in police custody and continue to be questioned by detectives.
Eight teenagers, who were arrested within half an hour of the incident from a bus on Lansdown Lane, have since been released from custody and no further action will be taken against them.
Detective Inspector Mark Newbury, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “Mikey’s family have been informed of these developments and our thoughts continue to be with them as they come to terms with their loss.
“Specialist family liaison officers supported them through the formal identification process which is something no family should ever have to experience.
“The investigation into Mikey’s murder continues at pace with a team of officers and staff working tirelessly to piece together what happened.
“A cordon remains in place at the scene, and we continue to appeal for anyone who has images, footage or information which could help our inquiry to get in touch.”
