THE BREWER BROTHERS | 1993
Prosecution (on behalf of the Crown)
Defence (on behalf of the accused)
Most cases of missing children are resolved within 48 hours and 99% of cases are closed within the first year.
Sadly this was not the case for 14 year old Daniel and 13 year old Steven Brewer. On Boxing Day in 1993 the two brothers went out to play with their new roller skates and never returned home. They had seemingly disappeared without a trace, leaving behind only their two pairs of skates which were found at the edge of Badger Hill, York two days later. The police weren’t able to tie anyone to the crime and the children’s disappearance went unsolved.
On 3rd July 1997 the bodies of the two boys were discovered beneath the foundations of the University of York Psychology department where work had been ongoing for many years. It was then that the investigation officially escalated from missing persons, to murder. Once again, despite significant resources deployed into the case there was insufficient evidence to charge anyone with the crime. Until now.
Forensic evidence retrieved from the boys’ bodies bore no match for anyone in the police database in 1997. But when Paul Sutton was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in July 2018 he provided a DNA sample, a DNA sample which was a positive match to that found on the boys.
DCI Hardy, leading the investigation believes they now have their man.
Did you know... the Brewer's Brothers were the first missing persons to be printed on pub beer mats and distributed through England & Wales.
