Facebook appeal for murdered schoolboy

APPEAL: Negus McClean

A SPECIAL Facebook appeal has been set up appealing for information into the death of north London schoolboy, Negus McClean.

It is hoped that the plea on the social networking site will encourage young people with vital information to come forward with information surrounding the teen’s murder.

Negus, of Edmonton, north London, was stabbed in the chest and thigh after being chased by seven young black males on bicycles who concealed their faces with bandanas on April 10.
The 15-year-old was rushed to the Royal London Hospital, but died later that night.

In a heartfelt appeal Ingrid Adam, the mother of Negus, said: "I have no words to describe how it feels to hear your son is dead," in an emotional video that Negus' cousin posted on YouTube.

It is believed around seven young black men on bicycles chased Negus prior to the murder. One of the suspects is believed to have been wearing a dark coloured, possibly black hooded jumper with a large 'Franklin and Marshall' logo on the front.

An incident room is open under Detective Inspector Julian Tree of the Homicide and Serious Crime Command.

"Negus died 16 days before his 16th Birthday. He had his whole life ahead of him. There were so many things he wanted to do and so many plans he had, and he'll never do them now,” his mother continued.

"He was always my baby. He was my Negus and that's what I called him. He was just my perfect baby and he's very missed."

DI Tree said: "If you have any information that you didn't feel you could tell us previously or if you have provided information but want to talk to us again for any reason please get in touch - it's not too late. No matter how insignificant it may seem please don't hold it back - contact the incident room on 020 8345 3775.

"If you are worried about talking to the police, we can meet you discreetly out of your area, we won't be in uniform or a marked police car and your information will be treated in the strictest of confidence."

Anyone who can assist should call the incident room on 020 8345 3775; if they wish to remain anonymous they can call Crimestoppers which is an independent charity on 0800 555 111.

There have been 16 people arrests in connection with the murder. All were bailed to return pending further inquiries and are next due in late April 2012.
