Police make third arrest following murder of pregnant woman in Croydon


Detectives investigating the murder of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby in Croydon, south London have arrested a third person.

A 25-year-old man is now being questioned by officers at a central London police station after being detained on suspicion of murder.

Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, who was around eight months pregnant, was stabbed to death at a home in Croydon last month.

The 26-year-old’s baby, named Riley, was delivered at the scene but later died in hospital.

Two people were earlier arrested. One was released with no further action, the second bailed until next month.

A statement from Scotland Yard said: “On Thursday July 11, detectives investigating the murder of Kelly Mary Fauvrelle and her baby son, Riley, arrested a 25-year-old male on suspicion of murder.

“The male has been taken to a central London police station where he remains at this time. Enquiries continue.”
