I cannot speak for everyone’s case but for my mum’s the cause of death listed above having seen my mum’s autopsy report is extremely vague and hardly highlights the extremity of the ordeal my mum went through and can only believe it is the same for the others.

Its sad to see their is so many people like myself going through the same as myself and i can only hope they find justice too one day, so if you have any information on my mum’s murder or anyone else listed on this page please call South Yorkshire police on 101 or crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Thank you.
