Lindsay Rimer's family looking for answers on 20th anniversary

The sister of murdered teenager Lindsay Rimer has spoken for the first time about the devastating effect her death has had on the family.

It's now 20 years since the teenager's body was found in a canal in her home-town of Hebden Bridge, five months after going missing.

Lindsay Rimer's mother: 'The pain never goes away'

Lindsay Rimer's mother Geri says her daughter will never be forgotten and that she believes her killer will be found.

Speaking in the centre of Hebden Bridge, Mrs Rimer said she just wants justice for Lindsay.

The emotion, the pain doesn't decrease over the years. If anything sometimes it gets more magnified. It never goes away. Not just for me but for my family.

– Geri Rimer

Sister makes plea to find killer

The sister of a 13-year-old girl from West Yorkshire who was murdered 20 years ago has spoken for the first time in an attempt to help track down her killer.

Lindsay Jo Rimer was last seen in November 1994 when she went to a shop near her home in Hebden Bridge. Her body was found in a canal five months later.

Her sister, Kate, has decided to speak about her family's ordeal as the 20th anniversary of the discovery of Lindsay Jo's body approaches on Sunday.

Ms Rimer said: "I was 20 at the time and still remember when mum called me to say my little sister was missing. I felt instantly that something was wrong.

"And then five months later she was found.

"From the beginning we have been filled with grief and we cannot stop the grief and instead remember her with love until this comes to an end. We miss her so much but every memory of her is tainted - it is so painful and bleeds into everything we do."

Lindsay was last seen in the town on November 7 1994. She left her home on Cambridge Street to go to the shops and paused briefly at the Trades Club on Holme Street where she met her mother before buying cornflakes at the Spar shop.

CCTV from the shop on Crown Street shows her buying the cornflakes at 10.22pm. It is not known what happened to her then. Her body was found in the Rochdale Canal on April 12 1995.

We are, however, still waiting for that one 'golden nugget' of information that will finally crack the case and bring closure to Lindsay's grieving family. Someone somewhere knows what happened to Lindsay and I am appealing again, directly, to that person to come forward and help me solve the case.

– Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson
