Following formal identification, on the day that should have been his 13th birthday Police have name the victim of the incident at Fishtoft, near Boston as Roberts Buncis.
The 14-year old was charged with murder and appeared for a five-minute hearing at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court this morning (Dec 14).
Wearing a grey sweater and with what appeared to be a bandage on his right hand, he spoke only to confirm his name, address and date of birth, before being remanded to appear at Lincoln Crown Court later in the day.
A 19 year old man, who was arrested yesterday on suspicion of murder, has been released with no further action in relation to the murder.
The murder investigation was launched after a body found in Fishtoft yesterday. Detective
Superintendent Martyn Parker said, “This is a devastating incident in which a young boy has lost his life. The impact will no doubt be felt greatly in the community and beyond.
“This type of incident is not what we would expect to see within our communities. We are working with those affected to keep them informed and offer our support.
“I want to reassure the public that we will do all in our power to meticulously investigate the circumstances of this young boy’s death and we would urge anyone who has any information that could support this investigation to get in touch.”
