Police have received more than 20 new calls following a renewed appeal to find Edinburgh book keeper Suzanne Pilley’s body.
Suzanne was murdered by David Gilroy in 2010 but her remains have never been found despite extensive searches in the Argyll and Bute area.
Gilroy is believed to have killed Suzanne at her workplace in Thistle Street, Edinburgh, before transporting her body in the boot of his car to that location..
As part of the appeal, detectives released animated maps showing the route Gilroy’s car took.
Suzanne’s sisters Gayle and Sylvia also made an appeal describing the pain as ‘unbearable.’
Detective Superintendent Stuart Houston said: “I’m very encouraged by the positive response we have had to the appeal we issued last week.
“We have taken over 20 calls which are all being assessed and further inquiries carried out as appropriate.
“Even after almost eight years, I’m pleased that people are still willing to come forward with any information that could help us find Suzanne and I would appeal to anyone who has not yet watched the videos to please do so, think back to May 2010 and call or email us if you think you could assist.”
Gayle and Sylvia said the pain of Suzanne’s loss was “unbearable” at times, and they felt her body had been “discarded”.
Anyone with information for the investigation can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting Operation Mica, email SCDMITEdinburgh@scotland.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
