Stab victim Keelan Wilson, 15, with his mother, Kelly.

Officers investigating the death of Keelan Wilson have arrested a teenager on suspicion of murder.

The 16-year-old was arrested from his home address in Wolverhampton and will be questioned today.

The arrest comes after an anniversary appeal for information.

“This is a significant development in our investigation. We are working on a number of leads and I am grateful to everyone who has provided us with information.

“I am particularly keen to speak to someone who called us with significant information last night. Please call me back personally – I assure you that you can remain anonymous, as your information could be vital.

“The community in Merry Hill, as well as the wider city of Wolverhampton, has understandably been rocked by the murder of Keelan and we are determined to stamp out this type of violence in our cities.”

– Detective Inspector Warren Hines

Police and paramedics were called to reports of groups of youths fighting on Langley Road on May 29.

Keelan was rushed to New Cross Hospital, but was confirmed dead a short time later.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died from stab wounds.
