Police have renewed their appeal for information over the murder of a woman who was killed while walking her dog in a Glasgow park six months ago.

Jean Campbell, 53, was killed some time after 22:30 on 13 December.

Her body was found in Cranhill Park the following morning by her husband when he returned from a night shift.

Det Ch Insp Colin Carey said her family deserved answers and asked anyone with information about the murder to come forward.

He said: "I would like to reassure Jean's family and friends and the community of Cranhill that this is still very much a live investigation, with a team of dedicated officers working on the case.

"Although six months have passed I remain confident that we will find out what happened to Jean and the motive behind her murder.

"We still need the public to help us. I would ask anyone who was in or around Cranhill Park on Friday 13 December and has not yet spoken to police to contact the incident room as soon as possible.

"As I have said before, please do not assume that we know what you know or that someone else will have given us the information you have."

Over the past six months, officers have taken more than 1,500 DNA samples and carried out house-to-house inquiries.
