Detectives investigating the murder of Billy Cox in 2007 have made two arrests.
On Tuesday, 25 June, two men – aged 26 and 31 – were arrested on suspicion of murder. They were taken into custody at a south London police station where they remain.
William Thomas Cox (known as Billy) was aged 15 when he was fatally shot in his bedroom at his home address, at Fenwick Place, Clapham on Wednesday, 14 February 2007.
Arrests were made during the original investigation but to date no charges have ever been brought in relation to the murder.
As with all serious cases, unsolved murder investigations are never closed and are subject to periodic public appeals and reviews.
The arrests were made following developments within the investigation.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command continue to investigate.
