A former Gogglebox star says she 'still wakes up crying' years after her nephew was murdered.
Bjorn Brown's killers have never been brought to justice, and Sandi Bogle has now opened up about the hole his death has left in her family.
The 23-year-old was stabbed in Croydon, London, in 2017, and sadly died from his injuries five days later.
At the time, a £20,000 reward was offered for information about his killers, with CCTV footage of two men linked to the crime shared with the public.
Speaking to Sky News, Ms Bogle said she struggles to cope with his loss and the thought that his killers are still out there.
She said: "It makes me sick to know that somebody might walk past me... and they know the person who has done it."
Recalling the moment she learned of her nephew's death, Ms Bogle said: "I felt like I was having a heart attack.
"Everyone was just broken. My sister was inconsolable.
"It was a sad moment. And it still is a sad moment because they still haven't caught the people - they're still out there.
"Every day is still a worry that they could do this to somebody else."
She went on: "We still cry. I still cry now and again because you never forget.
"He was part of our family. He was my nephew. He was my sister's son.
"He'd only just had a kid. His son has lost a dad. It's still heart-breaking every time you see him.
"It's still very painful even all these years along. You never get over it."
Ms Bogle says she and Mr Brown were incredibly close and spent a lot of time with one another.
"We had fun 24/7 - that's why he was always round my house," she added.
"If you ever phoned him, he'd say, 'I'm round Aunty Sandi's'."
And despite how much time has passed, she is hopeful that the people responsible for his death will be brought to justice at some point.
She said: "I'm a very spiritual person and God works in mysterious ways. I hope they're not thinking they've got away with it, because they haven't.
"You need to come forward. Justice needs to be served. I will not stop searching."
