Zaian Aimable-Lina Biography
Who was Zaian Aimable-Lina?
A 15-year-old boy stabbed to death in Croydon on Thursday was named and photographed for the first time, after the number of murders of teenagers in London reached a record 30 murders in a single year.
Zaian Aimable-Lina was attacked shortly after 7 p.m. in Ashburton Park, but she died about half an hour after paramedics failed to save him.
Yesterday, a 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of murder, before being released on bail on a date in late January.
Cause of death
A post-mortem examination was carried out today which revealed Zaian’s cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.
Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard said: “My thoughts continue to be with Zaian’s family and friends as they deal with this tragic loss. My team continues to work 24 hours a day to give Zaian’s family the answers they deserve.
“Zaian’s death has caused a stir in the local community and in London in general. He was only 15 years old and his whole life ahead of him and we need the community to work with us to bring those responsible to justice. No matter how petty you may think about it, if he has information that can help, he should do the right thing and contact us immediately. ”
Superintendent Dan Knowles of the Southern Area Command Unit, which watches over Croydon, said: “This tragic loss of a young life on our streets has rightly and understandably caused considerable concern among the local community.
“Our fellow crime specialists are continuing their investigation and my officers are conducting enhanced patrols in the local area. I urge anyone who can help us to reach out to those officers and tell us what he knows.
Anyone with information should call the police through 101 citing the CAD reference 5443 / 30Dec. To remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers at 0800555111.
His death came just minutes before the police were called to report an injured man in the open space of Philpotts Farm, near Heather Lane in Yiewsley, Hillingdon, west London.
The reasons behind the stabbings of the children are still unclear, but their deaths brought the number of teenagers killed in the capital last year to 30. The previous highest number was 29 in 2008.
The brutal new death record will inevitably put further pressure on Mayor Sadiq Khan, who this week claimed that stabbing crime in London has decreased, to take control of the gang and the stabbing epidemic sweeping the streets of the capital. .
And activists against knife crime cautioned that not enough was being done to address the problem, as they criticized what they called London’s “scattered gun” approach.
Patrick Green, CEO of the Ben Kinsella Trust, which campaigns against knife crime, told MailOnline that he was not surprised by the record because “we’ve been going in this direction for quite some time.”
He said: “I can’t tell you that next year will be different, it will most likely get worse.
“This generation accepts knife crime as an integral part of growing up and that is completely unacceptable.
In a Twitter thread, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “devastated” by the deaths of the two children and was in close contact with the Met “who are doing everything they can to bring those responsible to justice. Justice”.
He said the safety of Londoners “will always be my number one priority” and that he was “investing record amounts in surveillance to put more officers on the streets and create positive opportunities for nearly 100,000 young Londoners, helping them steer them away from violence.”
“That family will suffer, the devastation, the pain. It could be your cousin, your loved one, your friend. There are people like me who advise the family, who work with the police, but there are other families who sit down and cry.
“It is not just the death of one, it affects many people.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was devastated by the deaths of the two teenagers, but claimed that knife crime had decreased in the capital.
He said: ‘I am truly devastated by the death of a 15 year old boy in Croydon and a 16 year old boy in Hillingdon
