Surrey Police has launched a murder investigation into Quhey’s death, which is believed to have happened in front of his parents.

Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Jo Hayes said: “This was a horrifying attack at a busy petrol station on the M25, and I am sure that there are people who saw what happened but have not yet spoken to my officers.

“This is now a murder investigation, and we are pursuing all avenues of enquiry to bring those responsible to justice.

“I would like to speak to everyone who refuelled at the petrol station, or visited the shop, between 3pm and 3.30pm on Monday June 26.

“In particular there is a man shown in the store on CCTV wearing military or camouflage clothing who could have very valuable information for the investigation. If this person is you, please come forward.

“There are reports of people filming on mobile phones during the altercation, and immediately afterwards, and it is imperative that we get hold of their footage. There were vehicles on the forecourt during the fight, and I want to speak to those drivers, and view any dashcam footage they may have.
