GLASGOW, SCOTLAND – The body of Ann Coll, a 61-year-old grandmother, was tragically discovered in her first-floor flat just three days before Christmas. The Scottish Sun obtained CCTV footage showing Ann walking her dog and buying cigarettes near her home just days before she was found. After a post-mortem examination, it was determined that Ann had suffered serious injuries as a result of blunt-force trauma, indicating that she had been bludgeoned to death.
Ann, described as a “lovely lady,” was known to visit the local shops several times a day. However, she had not been seen at the shop since the morning of December 19, which was extremely unusual and out of character for her.
Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team launched a murder investigation and confirmed Ann’s death as suspicious. They conducted door-to-door enquiries and gathered further CCTV from local doorbell cameras in an effort to identify a suspect in the senseless slaying.
Detective Chief Inspector Lynsey Watters urged anyone with information to come forward, emphasizing the ongoing nature of the investigation and expressing condolences to Ann’s family. Extensive enquiries and door-to-door operations continue in the area.
The murder of Ann Coll has left the community in shock and disbelief. The investigation remains ongoing, and police have urged anyone with information to come forward as they work to bring the perpetrator to justice.
