Police have been given more time to question two men arrested in connection with the murder of teenager Matthew Cassidy in Connahs Quay on bank holiday Monday.

The two, an 18-year-old man from Merseyside who was arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday and a 48-year-old man arrested on the night of the murder remain in custody.

Detectives believe members of local community still hold vital information about the “senseless murder” of the Merseyside teenager and are again appealing for people to come forward and get in touch with police.

Six people have been arrested so far as the investigation continues into the fatal stabbing.

Police were called to an address at Bethel Place shortly before 8pm on Monday, May 29 following reports of a serious incident.

Despite the efforts of paramedics and police officers, the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene.

Speaking on Saturday Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies said:

Today, two of those in custody appeared before a special hearing at Wrexham Magistrates Court where we have been given more time to question them. Interviews will continue this evening and into tomorrow.

I still believe that there are people within the local community who hold key information and have not come forward.
I need the support of these people to progress this enquiry.

In the meantime we are making significant progress in the investigation and a large enquiry team is dedicated to the investigation to ensure that all investigative avenues are followed.

Anyone with any information relating to the investigation is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting reference V078270.
