A teenager was fatally stabbed 24 times in a frenzied knife attack by a mob of youths who ambushed him at a bus stop, detectives said tonight.
Daniel Graham, 18, died from catastrophic injuries after a 45 second attack near East Dulwich railway station, in south London, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Investigators revealed new details of the horrific attack tonight as they appealed for witnesses to help them catch at least six men responsible for the murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Manning, who is leading the inquiry, said officers have been met by a wall of silence among young people who attended a party before the killing.
He said: "This was a completely frenzied attack in full view of dozens of people. The attackers made no attempt to cover their faces. Daniel was stabbed 24 times.
"Witnesses described a gang raining blows on to him. Someone was hitting him with a bottle and others were kicking and punching him. Another man was described as punching him in the side.
"I went to meet his family yesterday. His mother is just deeply traumatised. I think it is almost impossible for her to take anything in." Read more
