Daniel Boulton Wiki – Daniel Boulton Bio
Daniel Boulton was arrested on Tuesday following a 15-hour search. Detectives fear a murder suspect ‘got a lift’ to the village where a mother and her nine-year-old son were found stabbed to death.
Lincolnshire Police have launched an appeal for any witnesses to the 10-mile trip Boulton on Monday from Saltfleetby to Louth.
He is 29 years old.
Boulton was arrested on Tuesday following a 15-hour manhunt after his ex-partner Bethany Vincent, 26, and her son Darren ‘DJ’ Henson, nine, were stabbed to death in High Holme Road, Louth, at around 8.29 pm the previous day.
Boulton’s ten-month-old baby – who he shared with Miss Vincent – was found unharmed at home on Monday, police confirmed.
The suspect – who remains in custody – was arrested barefoot at around midday at a farm near Louth after a man banged on a neighbour’s car window shouting, ‘let me in, let me in.
Boulton has not yet been charged.
Both victims had suffered multiple stab wounds at an ‘absolutely devastating and dramatic scene,’ the force said.
A knife believed to have been used to inflict the injuries was recovered.
An off-duty Lincolnshire Police officer was also injured in the Hubbard’s Hill area of Louth on Tuesday morning amid the search for Boulton.
A neighbour at the scene where a man was arrested connected with the double stabbing told how she managed to escape after he banged on her car window.
The woman – who asked not to be named – said after the man attempted to get into her car, she drove down the road to where she had seen police vehicles in nearby Hubbard’s Hills.
Forensic officers also appeared at the scene of the arrest around four hours later.
Armed officers and several police vehicles were involved in the arrest at the farm in Hallington, near Louth.
Two officers in high-vis jackets escorted a man into a police van around the back of a farm building. He was wearing no shoes or socks, ripped tracksuit bottoms, an Adidas T-shirt, and a Nike jacket.
An air ambulance and several police vehicles could be seen in the Hubbard’s Hill area, where a police officer was injured.
Darren had been dropped off at the Louth address by his father, Kieran Henson, 28, on Monday afternoon, following a trip to stay with his grandmother for the weekend.
Distraught Michelle Sanders fought back the tears on Tuesday as she paid tribute to her ‘football mad’ grandson.
Speaking at her home in Earlsdon, Coventry, Mrs Sanders, 47, said: ‘It’s surreal that Darren was with me 24 hours ago, and now he is gone.
