BBC Crimewatch to feature murder of Andrew tonight

You may remember a story we published back in February about the murder of 18-year-old Everton supporter Andrew Johnson. The perpetrator is still free. Andrew’s family have been in touch to let us know that BBC’s Crimewatch programme is going to cover the incident in the hope that it can help police solve the crime.

The programme will be on tonight, on BBC1 at 9.00pm.

Our original article is below, please try and watch the programme tonight (or record it if you are out) and try and see if there’s anything at all you can do to help.

three years ago, in March 2003, 18-year-old Andrew Jones died after
being attacked in Liverpool City Centre. Nobody has been brought to
justice yet for the murder of this young man.

His parents and
family have set up a website where you can find out more about what
happened. It serves both as a tribute to Andrew and as a means of
hopefully helping to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Andrew was an Evertonian, but instead of joining in with the usual banter about who are the better side he’s no longer with us.

website has already been featured on Everton websites, but Andrew’s
family have asked if Liverpool websites would be willing to mention it.
We hope that you can find some time today to read Andrew’s site and if
you feel you can do anything at all to help then please do so.

As Andrew’s dad Andy says, “I am sure you will agree that at times like this, football rivalry is put aside.”

Justice for Andrew Jones

Rest in Peace Andrew.
