The family of Kavan Brissett have today released a statement to mark what would’ve been his 22nd birthday.

Kavan died on 18 August last year as a result of a stab wound, sustained during an incident in Sheffield on Langsett Walk on 14 August.

His family said: “As I write this it has been nearly six months since, as a family, we lost Kavan – our star boy, our joker, and now, our angel.

“With heavy hearts, we have to prepare to face what would have been his 22nd birthday – just a baby, who had many years, hopes, dreams and accomplishments ahead of him.

“We should be going for a meal, eating a cake, watching him celebrate – instead our day will be spent visiting his resting place.

“He is sorely missed as a son, a grandson, a brother, cousin, nephew, boyfriend and friend. Each day that passes, the loss gets bigger, wondering about the what if’s, the could we’s and should we’s. It is both mentally and physically draining, and I would wish this on no family – not knowing what happened to our boy is a burden which is hard and heavy to bear.

“So, we would ask, that anyone with information pertaining to the events on 14 August 2018 which led up to the injury which Kavan sustained, that later took his life, on 18 August 2018 – to please, have a conscience and come forward.

“If it’s you, hand yourself in. I’m sure, if it was your child, you would ask and want for the same. Give Kavan the dignity in death, that you did not give him that day, and do what is right.”

"We should be going for a meal, eating a cake, watching him celebrate – instead our day will be spent visiting his resting place.

“He is sorely missed as a son, a grandson, a brother, cousin, nephew, boyfriend and friend. Each day that passes, the loss gets bigger, wondering about the what if’s, the could we’s and should we’s.

Anyone with information is asked to please come forward. Please, if you can help, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. You can now also report information via an online portal here - https://mipp.police.uk/operation/14SY18K05-PO1
