A murder investigation has been launched after a Camberley man was found dead in Crowthorne.

The 27-year-old was discovered injured along Nine Mile Road on Monday (November 5) and died at the scene.

A post mortem has since found he died a single stab wound to the chest.

He has been formally identified as Zelous Smythe. 

Detective Superintendent Ian Hunter, Head of the Major Crime uni for Thames Valley Police, said:

“We believe there are some witnesses who we are yet to trace who drove past the incident at around 2pm on Monday 5 November in Nine Mile Ride. If this was you or you have any information which may assist our investigation, I would like to encourage you to come forward and speak to police.

“The victim’s next of kin are continuing to be supported by specially trained family liasion officers.”

Superintendent Shaun Virtue, Local Police Area Commander for Bracknell and Wokingham, said:

“I understand our community will be concerned by this tragic incident, but the public should be reassured that police do not consider there to be any threat posed to people in the local community. Local officers remain close to the scene to provide reassurance and support to those affected.”

A 27-year-old man from Wokingham and a 20-year-old woman from Bracknell, who were arrested on Monday  on suspicion of murder, currently remain in police custody.

Nine Mile Ride remains closed while enquiries are ongoing at the scene.
