Oliver’s sister Emilia Stevens now says in honor of her brother: “I’m sorry I made you fail. I wish I could have saved you from everything.

“We give justice to my angels for you.”

She posted two inspiring images of Oliver next to the post-including one of him as a baby.

Oliver, also known as Olly, was a student at the High Down School and Sixth Form Center.

They today confirmed that the students remained “rewound” from the tragic news.

Principal Rachel Cave said: “This student is part of our community and many students and staff knew him well.

“Ending life at such a young age is a complete tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

“Many people are strongly affected by this tragedy. Under normal circumstances, we open schools and welcome students before the beginning of the semester.

“We can’t do this right now, of course, but we’re arranging counseling support and planning to create a condolence ebook. Highdown is a collaborative and close community that will work together over the next few days to weeks. I will continue. “

A flower tribute was offered to Oliver in the scene following the “totally meaningless” murder.

One card says: “Fly high ollie, I love you, night.

Another reading: “Dear Olly, too early, you were a very nice young man. Loved by many. I will send love to your family in this sad time.”

Murder detectives from the Thames Valley police major criminal team were drawn in after a knife attack.

A police cordon was thrown around Gravel Hill Road as a forensic officer searched for clues and a detective in plain clothes conducted a house-to-house investigation.

Horrible neighbors today revealed their shock to the murder of teens in the lush suburbs of Berkshire.

One said, “This is a really great area. I’ve lived here for nearly 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.

“The Bugs Bottomfield is an area where we walk often, as many people around here do.”

“Last year was a terrible year, but it’s already happening now. I can’t imagine what the victim’s family is feeling,” said Sue Boughton, 77.

“I know it was a young teen who was stabbed,” said one local.

“Am I desperately saddened by young parents (what they have to experience) right after Christmas and into the New Year?

“It’s a real tragedy. I’ve never heard of what caused the attack, but the fact that the scene is on the field is very rare.”

Police are currently seeking information and are asking witnesses to come forward.

Det Supt Brown said: “This is a widely used area for dog walkers. I’m sure some witnesses to this horrific incident and some have seen criminals leave the area soon.

“People who are driving or cycling in the area and have a dashcam or head camera can see the footage from 3 pm to 4:30 pm and may find useful in this survey. Please contact me if you have one.

“Similarly, many families are walking in the area, so if anyone took pictures in the area at that time, check them out and contact us if you find anything suspicious.”
