Emergency services were called to Thrales Close, Marsh Farm, at about 20.15 BST on Sunday.

A man, 22, and girl, 16, are being held in custody after voluntarily attending Luton police station.

"Our officers are working with witnesses and members of the victim's family to establish what happened prior to the stabbing and who may be responsible for this.

"The early stages of this investigation suggest that the victim may well have known his attacker as there was no indication of a disturbance prior to the fatal assault.

"I would urge anyone who may have seen the incident itself or anyone with even the smallest piece of information to come forward."

Detectives said they were keeping an open mind about the motive for the killing.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on Mr Maguire on Monday.
