Detective Superintendent Simon Cure, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime Team, said: "Our thoughts are with Joshua's family and friends and specialist officers are continuing to support them.
"They are shocked and devastated by what has happened and we ask that they be allowed to come to terms with their loss without intrusion at this very difficult time.
"While we have made a number of arrests in connection with Joshua's murder, this is very much an active investigation and there are still more people we need to talk to.
"I am appealing to anyone who has any information, however small, that could help us bring those responsible for Joshua's death to justice, to contact the incident room as soon as possible."
Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101, quoting reference number 18000476859. Alternatively, if they would prefer to remain anonymous, they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
Neighbourhood policing teams are continuing to carry out patrols in the Upton area and anyone with any concerns is encouraged to speak local officers who will be able to help.
Statement from Joshua's family:
"Joshua was a truly beautiful person in every way and his death has left a huge gap in our lives. He was caring and thoughtful towards his family and a loyal friend. He was a fantastic son, brother, partner and father to two wonderful children.
"Your life was cut short and the pain of losing you is so great, but your spirit will never leave us." » Less
