Baby boy dies following stabbing of pregnant mother in London

Tragic news.

The baby of a woman who was stabbed to death in London on Saturday has died.

The incident occurred on Saturday afternoon, at a home in Croydon, where an eight-month pregnant woman named Kelly Mary Fauvrelle was stabbed.

Her baby was delivered at the scene by paramedics and taken to hospital.

Police have confirmed on Wednesday morning that the baby has died.

CCTV footage has since emerged of the suspect, a man walking towards Ms Fauvrelle’s address at 3.11am and running back just over 10 minutes later.

Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman is leading the investigation. He said: "This morning, we heard the sad news that Kelly’s baby son, Riley, has died in hospital. Our thoughts remain with their family.

“This tragic development makes it even more important that anyone with information comes forward as a matter of urgency.

“We have released footage as the next step in what has been a fast-paced, and extremely challenging investigation.

"We need to identify the man shown in the images urgently, even if only to eliminate him from our enquiries. I need to hear from anyone who knows who he is. If this is you, it is imperative that you contact my team immediately.”
