Policeman reflects on day of Claire Tiltman murder

11:20 14 January 2013

A policeman who was on patrol in Stone on the day teenager Claire Tiltman was murdered 20 years ago will join her family and friends at a memorial walk on Friday (18).

Chief Superintendant Neil Jerome, now divisional commander at Kent Police, said: “I remember getting the initial call and being told an accident had happened.

“Obviously when we arrived at the scene things quickly changed.

“I was tasked to look around the neighbourhood to see if there was anyone around, anyone covered in blood, any witnesses, but there was nothing.”

Mr Jerome said he still believes someone out there knows what happened to Claire.

He added: “A huge amount of effort went into those early stages. It was a busy night, an area which would have mainly been used by local people. There must be witnesses who haven’t come forward, who are getting older now. Do they want to go to their graves with that vital piece of information?”

The candle lit walk with start at 6pm on 18th January opposite The Bull at Horns Cross and proceed to the memorial site on London Road, close to where Claire died.

It will be followed by a short service in St Mary’s church opposite, scheduled to start at 7pm.
