Unable to Kill Session

I have a SQL Server 7.0 SP6 with a remote link to a Sybase 12 database.

A stored procedure executes some Updates, Inserts and Deletes on the Sybase database by the link.

Sadly, the link was lost and so the SP did not finish. The process is still active in MS SQL:
I cannot find the opposite process on Sybase so I believe that it was killed on that end.

But I cannot kill it on the MS SQL server with the GUI or the KILL statement.

And so the question is: how do I kill the process and free the resources it took on the MS SQL server.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re-start the server.  If you can't kill the process, that's your option.
