Tributes paid to ‘best friends’ stabbed to death at house party
Tributes are being paid to two 17-year-old boys stabbed to death at a house party in Milton Keynes.
The victims have been named as Dom Ansah and Ben Gillham-Rice.
Two cousins of the boys laid flowers outside the house where they were killed and said: "Many, many people's hearts are broken."
One of the cousins, who did not want to be named, said: "He's come here with his long-time best friend since childhood, comes to a party and both of their lives just got ripped away from them.
"He was just so respectful to, like, his family and friends."
Another tribute on Facebook read: "Heart broken!! too loose theses boys I've grown up with my family, my little cousin! Words don't describe. Gone far far to soon (sic)!"
One of the boys died at the scene and the other was taken to hospital but died in the early hours of Sunday.

A double murder investigation is under way but no arrests have been made.
On Sunday, two forensic officers were seen inspecting an object on the driveway of a house in Archford Croft and there appeared to be blood smeared on the front door.
A neighbour said she heard a "commotion" and screaming shortly before midnight on the night of the stabbings.
"The police were here pretty quick," she said.
Another neighbour told BBC News she believed the gathering was a party for a teenage girl living in the house.
Others said they had seen a birthday banner hanging on the door.
