In an update on a statement they issued yesterday (Sunday) evening about an incident in Eglwysfan, Rhosymedre, North Wales Police now say a 19-year-old man was found deceased at the property.
In a Facebook post they add: "Shortly afterwards, an 18-year-old local man was apprehended by officers, and was arrested on suspicion of murder.
"Detective Inspector Chris Bell said: ‘Our enquiries are currently ongoing, however I would like to reassure the local community that this is an isolated incident, and there is no cause for further concern.
‘I am aware that highly graphic footage has been widely circulated on social media, and I would caution members of the public from sharing this further.
'Family Liaison Officers are currently providing support to the victim’s family, and out of respect, I would like to stress the importance of nothing being placed in the public domain that could cause further distress, or indeed prejudice any potential future trial. This includes, but is not limited to naming or speculation as to the identity of any individuals connected with this incident.
‘For these reasons, we will not be commenting further on the case at this time.’"
