Friends of a schoolgirl who was murdered 20 years ago have vowed to get justice after both her parents died without seeing her killer caught. Claire Tiltman, an only child, was fatally stabbed in an alleyway off the A226 London Road in Greenhithe, Kent, on January 18 1993.
She was knifed more than 40 times in a frenzied attack four days after her 16th birthday. Claire's mother, Lin, died in 2008, and her father, Cliff, died last September, months after he pleaded from his nursing home bed for information following years of campaigning
Despite both dying without seeing justice done for their daughter, friends of Claire - who was known as Tilt and would now be 36 - have vowed to keep the case in the public eye. A candlelit vigil will be held this evening to remember her.
