They are also renewing their appeal for information after he was stabbed at a house part in Marlowe Way, Colchester, just after 10pm on September 8.

The 17-year-old, of Aster Close, died a short time later in hospital.

A provisional post-mortem showed he died from a stab wound.

Although a number of knives were recovered from the local area, police do not believe any of them to be the murder weapon.

Five people from Colchester were arrested on suspicion of murder during the hours and days following the stabbing.

The two 19-year-old men, one 18-year-old man and two 17-year-old boys were arrested on suspicion of murder and later released on bail pending further enquiries.

In mid-November, a further four people were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

All nine had had their bail extended until Friday, March 22.

Anyone with information in connection to the investigation should call detectives at Colchester’s major investigation team on 101, e-mail SCDappeals@essex.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
