“She put her two kids into fos­ter care be­cause she didn’t want them around as she knew some­thing was go­ing to hap­pen. I be­lieve drugs got her into trou­ble.”

He added: “It’s got to be some­body she knew well - some­one who had been to her house be­fore and some­one who lived on the es­tate.”

Ja­son, 48, said that the fam­ily was still deal­ing with the pain of los­ing Sarah and know­ing the killer was still at large.

“As a fam­ily it is killing us. We have had to live through 24 years. It’s hard not know­ing who the cul­prit is. There’s noth­ing I would not do to get it solved. We need to find out who has done this. When she died it was like my life had just stopped.”

He re­mem­bers Sarah as “ev­ery­thing a big sis­ter should be” - kind and car­ing and “al­ways there for us”.

“She was al­ways smil­ing and happy. A lot of peo­ple liked her and I never came across
