Suzanne Pilley: Police take more than 20 calls after appeal
Detectives said the renewed plea from the victim's family has had a 'positive response'.
Police investigating the death of Suzanne Pilley have received more than 20 new calls, following a renewed appeal to find her body.
The Edinburgh bookkeeper's family launched a fresh appeal for information last week, which police said had led to a "positive response" from the public.
Suzanne's sister Gail and mother Sylvia spoke publicly for the first time since she was murdered by David Gilroy in 2010.
He is believed to have killed her at her workplace in Thistle Street, Edinburgh, before transporting her body in the boot of his car to Argyll and Bute.
Suzanne's remains have never been found.
Detective superintendent Stuart Houston said: "I'm very encouraged by the positive response we have had to the appeal we issued last week.
"We have taken over 20 calls which are all being assessed and further inquiries carried out as appropriate.
"Even after almost eight years, I'm pleased that people are still willing to come forward with any information that could help us find Suzanne and I would appeal to anyone who has not yet watched the videos to please do so, think back to May 2010 and call or email us if you think you could assist."
As part of the appeal, Police Scotland released animated maps showing the route Gilroy's car took in order to jog people's memories from almost eight years ago.
Gayle and Sylvia said the pain of Suzanne's loss was "unbearable" at times, and they felt her body had been "discarded".
