25 years on, we still hope to find who killed Sarah

THE twin brother of a Hud­der­s­field woman mur­dered 25 years ago re­mains hope­ful that the killer will one day be brought to jus­tice.

Jimmy Lewin, 60, who lost his sis­ter, Sarah Lewin, in Jan­uary, 1994, says not a day goes by when he doesn’t think about her.

Sarah, who was 35, was found blud­geoned to death at her home in Bradley Boule­vard, Sheep­ridge, on Jan­uary 14.

Po­lice - who are con­duct­ing a “cold case re­view” of the mur­der - said at the time of her death that Miss Lewin may have known her killer and let him or her into her home.

Jimmy hasn’t given up hope that the killer or killers will be caught.

“I think about her ev­ery day,” he told the Ex­am­iner.

“Time is mov­ing on, as I am 60 now. There are no devel­op­ments and it’s get­ting pretty hard.”

Jimmy, who lives in Dal­ton, said the fam­ily were “hop­ing and pray­ing” for de­tec­tives to catch the killer.

“Sarah’s kids, Leanne and Kyle, are adults now. We would all like to know what hap­pened.

“It would be nice if some­body came along with in­for­ma­tion.

“These two, Leanne and Kyle, no longer have their mother there, which can’t be easy for them.” Jimmy says he be­lieves there is more than one per­son who knows who killed his sis­ter.

“There’s got to be more than one per­son who knows who did it. There’s no two ways about it.”

Jimmy thanked the Ex­am­iner for pub­lish­ing sto­ries about the case and said he hadn’t given up hope of a po­lice break­through.

“We are all hop­ing and pray­ing that some­body is go­ing to be ar­rested and con­victed for it.

“We want the per­son who did it found - whether they are dead or alive.

“We want some clo­sure on this - for me, the fam­ily and for Sarah’s kids.”

Last year, West York­shire Po­lice con­firmed that the case was be­ing looked at by a re­view team.

This week, the force stressed that un­solved mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tions were never closed.

De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent Jim Grif­fiths, from West York­shire Po­lice’s Homi­cide and Ma­jor En­quiry team, said: “It’s now 25 years since Sarah Lewin was mur­dered in her own home.

“The amount of time that has passed in no way di­min­ishes our de­sire to achieve jus­tice for the vic­tim and her fam­ily.

“No un­solved mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion is ever closed and we ac­tively re­view our cold cases and any bit of in­for­ma­tion could help un­lock the an­swers and bring some clo­sure to her fam­ily after all these years.”
