Reading Stabbings American Joe Ritchie-Bennett Named As Victim

An American man is the second victim of the Reading stabbings to be named.

Joe Ritchie-Bennett had lived in the UK for 15 years, his father confirmed to US TV network CBS. Teacher James Furlong and one other person also died.

Meanwhile, police continue to question the suspect in Saturday’s attack, Khairi Saadallah, who has been arrested under the Terrorism Act.

Sources told the BBC he was originally from Libya and came to the attention of MI5 in 2019.

Two minute’s silence was held at 10:00 BST for the three victims.

Robert Ritchie told CBS the family was “heartbroken” and described his son, who was originally from Philadelphia, as “brilliant and loving”.

US ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson confirmed that an American citizen was killed and condemned the attack.

He said: “I offer my deepest condolences to the families of those killed. To our great sorrow, this includes an American citizen. Our thoughts are with all those affected.”

People were invited to join the silence via Reading Council’s Facebook page.

Reading Borough Council leader Jason Brock said the town was “an incredibly strong community” where “people will come together and they won’t allow themselves to be divided”.

His parents Gary and Janet described their son as “beautiful, intelligent, honest and fun”.

“He was the best son, brother, uncle and partner you could wish for. We are thankful for the memories he gave us all,” they said in a statement. “We will never forget him and he will live in our hearts forever.”
