Cops said DNA evidence from the street where model Miles Hurley, 21, was attacked was not of a “sufficient level” to find a match.
Yesterday a source said Liz, 53 — who dashed back from the US after the March attack — was “annoyed but not surprised”.
The insider added: “The family were warned the DNA was not of sufficient quality to get a full profile. Liz’s concern was that these scumbags who tried to murder Miles are still out there, and will strike again.
“Miles has spent a lot of time recovering and still has nightmares — so to be told there is nothing police can do is upsetting for everyone.” CCTV analysis, number-plate recognition cameras and witness appeals also failed to produce suspects.
Miles and a friend were stabbed in Nine Elms, South West London, after a row with a stranger. The knife just missed severing the Dolce & Gabbana model’s spine.
Liz slammed the “brutal attack” in which Miles almost had his spine severed – amid fears he was targeted as part of a local feud.
She said on Instagram at the time: “My 21-year-old nephew Miles Hurley was brutally attacked by four men in London on Thursday night.
“He was repeatedly stabbed and lost more than four pints of blood. A policeman was patrolling close by and administered first aid until the ambulance arrived.
“The deepest wound just missed severing his spine. By some miracle no vital organs were damaged. We are praying that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill, someone else. These are sad days.”
Previously, the star thanked fans for their support in what she described as an “appalling time” for the family.
She is close to Miles, whose mum is her sister Kate Curran, 54. He has been “lying low” during his recovery at her Hertfordshire home.
The actress chose not to comment last night. Miles did not respond to requests to speak to The Sun.
Javid vow on stop & search
POLICE must stop and search knife crime suspects whether they are “black, brown or white” the Home Secretary said yesterday.
Sajid Javid urged cops to use as many spot checks as they need to tackle the crimewave sweeping Britain — in a direct challenge to Theresa May’s Home Office legacy.
He told police to feel “absolutely confident” in using stop and search powers curtailed by the PM in 2014.
Mr Javid pledged to beef up the checks in weeks in response to the explosion in violent crime. It has seen 199 deaths in London alone in 2018.
