Police are to speak to people in and around a Glasgow park a week after a woman was murdered there.

Jean Campbell's body was found by her husband in Cranhill Park last Saturday after he went out to look for her.

The 53-year-old was last seen on CCTV footage walking her German Shepherd dog in Bellrock Street, towards the park, at about 22:30 the previous night.

She was wearing a black three quarter length jacket and light trousers.

Officers will be handing out leaflets and speaking to members of the public in a bid to piece together her last movements.

Det Ch Insp Colin Carey, from Police Scotland, said: "This is a major investigation with over 40 detectives dedicated to the inquiry.

"So far the response from the public has been encouraging, however, we still have to establish the exact circumstances surrounding Mrs Campbell's death and a motive for her murder.

"It is essential that we piece together her last movements.

"We know that she was last seen by a family member around 17:00 on Friday night (13 December), however, there has been a further confirmed sighting of her in Bellrock Street with her German Shepherd dog Kai around 22:30.

"This is the last sighting of her. As you will imagine, Mrs Campbell's family are devastated as a result of this loss, particularly in these circumstances and, at this time of year, when it is especially harrowing."

He urged anyone with information to contact police.
