The Met Police have launched a murder investigation after the body of man was found by joggers in Feltham’s Hanworth Park.
Shortly after 7:40am on Thursday morning, the police were contacted by members of the public reporting that they’d found the body of an unresponsive man in the park.
Police attended and discovered the body of 19-year-old Tyler Donnelly. While he had been stabbed, a post-mortem examination to formally identify the cause of death will be conducted in due course.
Tyler had left his home at 9.10pm on Wednesday evening and rode his bike along Elmwood Avenue. At some stage he entered the park but sadly never returned home. An extensive crime scene remains in the park and is expected to be there for a number of days.
Reacting to the news, Leader of Hounslow Council, Shantanu Rajawat said:
We are saddened by the tragic loss of this young life. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tyler’s family and friends during this difficult time.
For residents and the wider public we know this will cause shock and concern but I would like to reassure our communities the Police are doing everything they can and there will also be additional patrols in the area.
