Male released from custody in connection with the murder of Tavis Spencer-Aitkens

A man arrested by police investigating the fatal stabbing of a teenager in Ipswich has been released from police custody.


Tavis Spencer-Aitkens, aged 17, was attacked by a group of males at around 4.50pm on Saturday 2 June in Packard Avenue, during which he suffered a fatal stab wound.

Wednesday 12 September, officers arrested a 28-year-old man from Ipswich on suspicion of murder. He was questioned by detectives and has been released under investigation pending further enquires.

Officers also searched three addresses in the Chantry area of Ipswich yesterday. These were conducted both in connection with the arrest and also as part of ongoing proactive work across the town to combat the supply of illegal drugs into Suffolk. As a result of these searches a quantity of cannabis was discovered and seized.

Six people have previously been charged with murder in connection with the death of Tavis Spencer-Aitkens as follows:

- Aristote Yenge, aged 23, of Ipswich; and a 16-year-old boy from Colchester (who cannot be named for legal reasons); were charged in early June

- Callum Plaats, aged 23 of Ipswich; and Adebayo Amusa, aged 20, of Barking in east London; were both charged in late July

- Leon Glasgow, aged 42, of no fixed abode; and Isaac Calver, aged 18, of Ipswich; were both charged at the end of August.

All six are currently remanded in custody pending next appearances at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday 21 September.

A 20-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, remains on bail with the authority of the magistrates' court until Tuesday 4 December.

Detectives are continuing to appeal for anyone with information about the murder, especially anyone who witnessed the attack or anything suspicious in the area immediately prior to it or directly afterwards, to make contact.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Major Investigation Teamt by dialling 101 and quoting reference 30192/18. Alternatively you can contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
