Three men arrested in Tyler Connelly murder investigation

Police still looking for evidence

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of 19 year old Tyler Donnelly in Hanworth Park.

Police were called at 7.40am on Thursday 25 January by joggers who had come across the body of an unresponsive man at Hanworth Park. When the police got there they found Tyler, who had been stabbed and assaulted. Tyler was from Feltham.

On Sunday 28 January three men aged 21, 27 and 32, were arrested at different locations in London and taken into custody. The crime scene at the park has now been closed.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Howie, leading the investigation from the Met’s Homicide Command said:

“Tyler left his home around 9.10pm on Wednesday evening and rode his bike along Elmwood Avenue and at some stage entered the park. He never returned home.

“If you were in the park and saw something, regardless of the reason you were there, please get in touch. Our focus is on what happened to Tyler and who was responsible.

“Similarly, if you were driving through Elmwood Avenue, returning home or out walking, did you notice anything? Did you see anyone else in the park on bikes alone or in a group? Did you perhaps see Tyler, who was wearing dark clothing, riding his grey bike?

“The H25 bus route goes through Elmwood Avenue, were you travelling through this area on Wednesday or in the early hours of Thursday? Did you see Tyler or anyone matching his description?

“Tyler’s family and friends are inconsolable after receiving the worst possible news imaginable – our thoughts are with them and they are being supported by specialist officers.”
