The mother of a 17-year-old boy who was stabbed to death at a house in Camberley last week says every second without him is 'pure torture.'

Kyle Wright from Aldershot died from his injuries following the incident on Friday night. (27 May)

Emergency services rushed to a house at the Greenhill Road Junction of Copped Hall Drive at 10:50pm to reports that a teenager had been stabbed.

But despite the best efforts of paramedics, the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 17-year-old boy who was arrested on Saturday (28 May), on suspicion of murder remains in custody at this time.

Paying tribute to her son today, Kyle's mother said: "He was a beloved, sweet, gentle son, who wouldn’t even hurt a fly.

"Every second without him is pure torture. Our hearts have been shattered into a million pieces.

Police were called to a house in Copped Hall Drive on Friday night.

"He was such a talented and dedicated basketball player and keen gym enthusiast.

"The number of times parents have said I’m doing such an amazing job bringing you up, and how polite and cheerful you were. My baby, we were blessed to have had such fantastic 17 years with you and we are struggling to go on without you.

"A parent should not have to bury her child, no child deserves this. Myself, your dad, your brother, family, friends and the community are devastated."

Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Simon Dunn from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Kyle’s family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

“We are doing everything possible to ensure those responsible for his senseless and tragic death are held to account and we are making significant progress with our enquiries.

“However, we would continue to encourage anyone who has any further information to contact us and help us with this investigation.”
