Statement of Kevin and Jan Pert, parents of Jo Pert:

"Mr FIlo's unforgivable selfish action has left us with a huge hole in our lives, sleepless nights and when we do finally sleep we end up waking in a cold sweat wondering about the last moments of our much loved daughter's life.

"Mr FIlo has left us angry and unable to forgive him for this heinous crime.

"The horrendous death of our most beautiful, most talented, highly intellectual, much loved sister, wonderful mother of two beautiful children has left an open wound in our hearts which will never heal over.

"Every minute, every hour, every day Jo is in our hearts."
