Police search for man after Boston girl’s fatal stabbing

Two people arrested now released

UPDATE: SUSPECT LOCATED

Lincolnshire Police are urgently appealing for the public’s help to identify the man in these photographs, who they want to speak to following the death of nine-year-old Lilia Valutyte.

As part of our fast-moving murder investigation, we now have CCTV images of a man who we need to locate. Any information, however small, may prove critical to our enquiries.

Two people who were arrested earlier this week have now been released with no further action.

Chief Superintendent Martyn Parker said: “Our officers have been working round the clock on this investigation, and the public’s help may prove crucial.

“These are very clear images of a man we want to speak to, so I’d urge anyone with information to get in touch with us. If you see him, do not approach him but immediately call 999.

“This is a particularly tragic case and I’d like to reassure the public that we have a huge amount of resources dedicated to the investigation.

“We continue to provide support to the family of Lilia, as they grieve following this unimaginable loss.”

• If you see this man, do not approach him but call 999 quoting Incident 419 of 28 July.
• You can submit information via our dedicated Major Incident Portal.
• If you have any information relating to our investigation, including if you think you know the identity of this man, call 101 quoting Incident 419 of 28 July.
