The third victim from the Reading stabbings has now been named.
David Wails was stabbed to death alongside his two friends as they enjoyed an evening sat in a park in Forbury Gardens.
Mr Wails died alongside his two friends James Furlong and Joe Ritchie-Bennett.
One male is in custody after being detained on suspicion of murder. The male, believed to be a Libyan asylum seeker, was re-arrested under the Terrorism Act.
Detective Chief Superintendent Kath Barnes, Head of Counter Terrorism Policing South East, said:
“This investigation is continuing at pace.
“We have a large team of officers and staff working to establish exactly what happened in the lead up to, during and after this incident.
“Our thoughts very much remain with the family and friends of those who have lost loved ones and those who have been injured and affected as a result of this tragic incident.
“I would ask both the media and the public again not to speculate on any aspect of this case at this time as this could have an impact on the ongoing investigation and any future court appearances.”
CTPSE have confirmed that more than 100 officers and staff are continuing to work through the information that has already been provided by witnesses and other members of the public.
They continue to appeal for anyone with any information to come forward.
CTPSE are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have been driving in the area before or at the time of the incident, and who may have dash-cam footage which could be of use to the investigation.
Several items have been recovered from the scene and are currently being investigated by specialist teams.
DCS Barnes added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have already been in touch. We have had a large amount of information come in to us via the reporting portal on www.ukpoliceimageappeal.co.uk and via Thames Valley Police on 101, and have spoken to more than 50 witnesses at this time.
“Your information is vital, and we would ask that you please continue to share this with us.
“You may think your information is insignificant, but it could be a vital piece of this investigation, so please get in touch.
“We are aware of distressing mobile phone footage which was posted online in the immediate aftermath of the incident, and I would urge you not to re-share this. We would ask that this is shared with us as a priority.”
