Notting Hill Carnival is a multi-day festival in London that takes place every summer. The festival is known for its cosmopolitanism. London is considered one of the most multicultural capitals in Europe. Members of over a hundred different ethnic groups celebrate peacefully together, present themselves in colorful costumes and for a moment forget that London is also the capital of deadly knife attacks. This fact caught up with the rapper TkorStretch last August. He was killed in a knife attack during this year's Notting Hill Fest. The attackers were unknown for a long time. The police are now reporting that they have identified all the alleged perpetrators.

Nottinghill knife murder solved

TKorStretch, whose real name is Takayo Nembhard, was enjoying the upbeat vibes of Caribbean music and soul food with his sister and a few friends when he bumped into a feuding group of young men from his hometown of Bristol. The situation quickly escalated. TkorStretch, facing four attackers alone, was overpowered by his killers and punched and kicked to the ground. One of the perpetrators stabbed the drill rapper several times. Although rescue workers quickly arrived on site and treated the seriously injured man, he succumbed to his injuries a short time later in hospital.

Arrest of all suspects

According to current knowledge, the alleged perpetrators are three men and one woman. Two of the men, aged 18 and 23, were arrested in Bristol along with the 20-year-old woman last Wednesday. The fourth perpetrator has now also been identified – a 17-year-old who the officials suspect to be the main perpetrator. While the woman and the 18-year-old accomplice were released on bail, the investigators were unable to prove that the 23-year-old was involved in the crime and released him from custody. The alleged main perpetrator remains in custody until the court hearing.
