Janet Brown, murdered on 10 April 1995

Janet's killer or killers have not been found. Police say they are open-minded about the motive.

In 2015 police revealed that they had managed to retrieve a DNA sample but no match is yet to be made.

Police say: “All we need is their name.”

Roxanne Brown, Janet's daughter says: “The police have worked really hard - in recent years we've managed to get a DNA profile but we just really need a vital clue to really pinpoint or lead us to the killer or killers and just be able to put all of that behind us."

If you have information about the incident, call 101.
