Detectives are appealing for information following the murder of a 54-year-old woman in Maryhill, Glasgow, on Tuesday, 6 April, 2021.
Around 5.25pm, the body of Jacqueline Grant was found within her flat in Cumlodden Drive. Her relatives are aware.
A post mortem has now been carried out and her death is being treated as murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Grainger, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, said: “Jacqueline died as a result of a brutal attack in her home and her family are devastated by what has happened.
“We have a dedicated team supported by local and specialist resources, including forensic and search trained officers, dealing with the case and carrying out a detailed search of her home and surrounding area.
“Officers have also been checking CCTV of the nearby flats and streets, and have been speaking to neighbours, local residents and businesses to try to glean as much information as possible. However, we are still really keen to hear from anyone who was in the area either later in the evening or night of Monday, 5 April, or in the morning of Tuesday, 6 April.
“If you have not yet spoken to police and have information about the murder, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, then please contact us via 101, quoting reference number 2388 of 6 April, 2021. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Detectives have also set up an online portal to encourage members of the public to submit any information. This can be accessed here: https://mipp.police.uk/operation/SCOT21S11-PO1.
