Lindsay Jo Rimer (Born 17 February 1981) was a British thirteen year old girl from Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, who was murdered. She was last seen alive in Hebden Bridge on 7 November 1994, and her body was found in a canal about a mile away on 12 April 1995. Despite repeated appeals for information by police, her murder remains unsolved...

Jo was last seen alive on the evening of 7 November 1994. At about 10pm, she left her home to buy a packet of cornflakes from the Spar Supermarket in Crown Street.She failed to return home that night, and when she did not turn up for her paper round the following morning, the alarm was raised

Jo's weighted down body was found by two local workmen in the Rochdale Canal, about a mile upstream of the centre of Hebden Bridge, on 12 April 1995,the post-mortem was carried out later that day at Royal Halifax Royal Infirmary by Home Office pathologist Professor Mike Green. He concluded that Rimer had probably been strangled. Her voicebox had been flattened against the spinal column and there were also signs of congestion across the middle of the neck muscles. There were no signs of a sexual assault,Nobody has ever been charged over the murder...
