Rutherglen, Scotland – Ann Coll, a 61-year-old grandmother, was tragically found bludgeoned to death in her first-floor flat just three days before Christmas. Her body was discovered in the early hours of the morning in her home on the border between Rutherglen and Toryglen, Glasgow. After a post-mortem was carried out, it was revealed that Ann had suffered “serious injuries” as a result of blunt-force trauma.
CCTV footage showed Ann walking her beloved dog and buying cigarettes at the local shops just days before she was found dead. This was some of the last known sightings of Ann before she died. Ann, who has family in Ireland, was known to visit the shops several times a day. A source mentioned that her absence from the shop since the morning of December 19 was unusual and out of character for her.
The Scottish Police’s Major Investigation Team launched a murder investigation into Ann’s death and confirmed it as suspicious after the postmortem. Detectives swarmed the area, conducting door-to-door enquiries and gathering further CCTV from local doorbell cameras in an effort to identify a suspect in the senseless killing. Detective Chief Inspector Lynsey Watters urged anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious around the area to come forward and assist in the investigation.
The investigation into Ann’s murder is ongoing, and authorities are providing support to her family during this difficult time. Extensive enquiries are ongoing, and there will be an additional police presence in the area as the investigation continues. The police urged anyone with concerns or information to speak to the officers involved.
