Have your say

The aunt of a Sheffield murder victim has condemned his killer and those at the scene who failed to raise the alarm or try to revive him.

Kavan Brissett, aged 21, was stabbed in an alleyway off Langset Walk, Upperthorpe, on Tuesday, August 21.

Ahmed Farrah, 29, is believed to hold vital information about the murder but cannot be found.

He knows he is wanted for questioning but is said to be actively evading arrest.

In an emotional Facebook post written on Christmas Eve, Kavan’s grieving aunt, Libby Hamilton, said: “Whoever did this to him, and the others who did not help, call an ambulance, offer CPR or even just let his mum know that he was hurt will sit and eat their dinner tomorrow with their family.

“I really hope your dinner is hard to swallow - I don’t know how you sleep I really don’t.

“RIEP our lovely Kav, may you dance in the sky forever, light up the stars and your smile radiate through the sun. Love you.”

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and three boys - two aged 17 and one aged 16 - were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rob in the immediate aftermath of the killing.

Last week, detectives issued a new appeal for information on the fatal stabbing.
