THE Huddersfield aunt of a teenager murdered in London has told how the family has been left devastated.
And Pauline Hanson has also urged anyone shielding the killers of Negus McLean to come forward.
Negus, 15, was stabbed to death in Edmonton, London, while trying to protect his younger brother from a gang.
Police investigating his death have arrested six youths but said inquiries were continuing.
After the funeral of the murdered teenager, Mrs Hanson said: "Somebody out there knows something and needs to come forward.
"Negus’ death has had a devastating effect on our family and the whole community. It gets harder on a daily basis and we have not received any closure because his murders are still on the run are yet to be caught."
Police said Negus, who was with his younger brother Elijah, was attacked on April 10 by nine bandana- clad youngsters who later rode off on bicycles.
Mrs Hanson, 43, said:
"The parents need to turn them into the police. Imagine how they would feel, if they were in the same shoes as his mum Ingrid.
"What you’ve done is terrible; hold your hands up and come forward; you cannot hide someone that’s done something like this."
