Police are continuing to investigate the death of a man in the car park of Tesco Extra in Slough.

A murder investigation has been launched after a 24-year-old man was stabbed to death in the car park in Wellington Street at 12.32pm yesterday (Wednesday).

A post-mortem is expected to take place tomorrow (Friday) and the victim’s next of kin have been informed. They are being supported by specially trained officers.

Police believe the victim and attacker were known to each other and do not believe this was a random attack.

A scene watch, which was in place, has now been lifted and the supermarket car park has reopened to the public.

Head of the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, Detective Superintendent Ian Hunter said: “We are grateful to the public for their patience while officers dealt with this incident.

“There will be a continued police presence in the area conducting reassurance patrols.

“I understand that this would have caused concern in the community, but I would like to offer some reassurance to the public that we do not believe this incident to be a random attack, and that the people involved in the incident are believed to be known to one another.

“We are in the early stages of this investigation and we are working hard to establish the full circumstances.

“There will be a police presence in the area today in an attempt to establish witnesses.

“We are still continuing in our attempts to locate and bring the offender or offenders to justice.

“The Major Crime Unit is being supported by our colleagues in the Slough local policing area. Please speak to them if you have any concerns or questions.

“I would continue to appeal for anyone with information relating to this incident to come forward and speak to police.

“Finally, I would ask members of the public not to share images of the incident on social media, but instead to report these to the police.”

Anyone with information is being urged to call 101, quoting URN 487 8/5.
