Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was killed at a pool party in Surrey.It is not clear how the victim, in his thirties, died but Anne Legeunde Lacroix, who lives nearby, posted on Twitter: “Suspected shooting at party in Headley, Surrey.”
Several other people at the party – advertised as a £20-a-head party “at a posh location in the hills” – are believed to have been seriously injured. Locals said they were woken in the early hours by the sound of cars honking their horns as they tried to get away from the house – which is thought to have been rented for the party.
Surrey Police said officers were called to the address in Church Lane in Headley shortly after 2.30am following reports of a disturbance. They found the body of the victim who was declared dead at the scene.
The party was advertised in advance as “The Big Mansion Pool Part Called My League – Part 3” with tickets £20 on the night. The promoters – known as Krissy The Female Boss and Braintear Spookie – had been regularly posting about the event on social media in the days leading up to it.
