What did Deividas Skebas do?

An investigation has led to the arrest of a Lithuanian man on suspicion of murdering a nine-year-old girl whose body was discovered stabbed in the street in Boston, Lincolnshire.

Deividas Skebas, 22, was detained on Saturday after a CCTV appeal following the death of 9-year-old Lilia Valutyte, and he is scheduled to appear in Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Monday, according to the police. A stabbing death was suspected of Lilia, who was found in Fountain Lane, Boston, at around 6:20 p.m. on Thursday.

Statements by Lincolnshire Police on Deividas Skebas’ case

Lincolnshire Police said in a statement that they had specially trained officers helping out Lilia’s parents after Skebas was accused.

“We ask that their privacy be maintained during this difficult time,” the statement continued. ” Their safety is still one of our top concerns.”

“On Saturday at approximately 2:45 PM, armed officers in the Central Park area of Boston acted on information gleaned from intelligence sources as well as tips from the general public.”

Deividas Skebas, 22, a Lithuanian resident of Boston’s Thorold Street, is scheduled to appear in Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Monday when he will face murder charges.

“This is a terrible situation that has affected many individuals in Boston and further afield,” said Chief Superintendent Martyn Parker. “We’re keeping Lilia’s family in our prayers during this trying time.”

The death of Lilia has obviously shocked the residents of Boston, and as a result, the city has dedicated substantial resources to the inquiry and reached out to the community.

Officers from our agency have been walking the streets of the town and hearing out locals on their issues. Over the next few days, we plan to keep a sizable presence.

“Finally, I’d like to thank the public and the media for their support during this complex and rapidly developing case. Your help is much appreciated by our administration.”

Skebas was seized after four CCTV photographs were released of a man investigators said they wanted to trace near the scene of the stabbing in Boston (Joe Giddens/PA).

The police have already stated they have no leads on anyone else who may be involved in the death. Five minutes before Lilia was discovered dead, surveillance footage showed a man at the intersection of Wormgate and Fountain Lane in Boston around 6:15 p.m. on Thursday. Two people arrested by Lincolnshire Police earlier this week have been released without charge.

Lilia and her younger sister had been playing in the street just yards from the office where their mother was working. According to witnesses, the girls were carrying a hula hoop and abandoned a toy stroller at the scene.
