A father whose schoolgirl daughter was stabbed to death in an alleyway in Kent 19 years ago has died without seeing his killer being brought to justice.
Cliff Tiltman, 62, pleaded through local media constantly for someone to come forward with information - the last time just months ago from his nursing home bed.
His only child Claire died in an alleyway off the A226 London Road in Greenhithe on January 18 1993 - four days after her 16th birthday.
The Dartford Grammar School student was wounded more than 40 times in a frenzied attack as she took a short cut to visit a friend.
Retired plumber Mr Tiltman said in January this year: "It would mean everything to me to find out, after all these years, who did this to Claire.
"It has been a long time, but I've never given up hope and never will."
