CCTV film 'shows Suzanne with accused'

Published / News

A COURT has been shown CCTV footage of a missing bookkeeper with the man accused of her murder.

The High Court in Edinburgh saw images of Suzanne Pilley shopping in a convenience store with David Gilroy on the evening of May 2, 2010, two days before she disappeared.

Gilroy, 49, denies murdering her on May 4, hiding her body and driving it away in the boot of a car, and trying to conceal her killing.

The court saw a couple enter a Scotmid store in Saughtonhall Drive, Edinburgh around 6.20pm on May 2. They were identified to the court by a detective as Gilroy and Ms Pilley

It is alleged Gilroy repeatedly told officers he stopped having a relationship with Ms Pilley in December 2009.

The court then saw CCTV footage of Ms Pilley's last known journey two days later. The last confirmed image of the 38-year-old saw her passing the offices of Standard Life, just round the corner from her office.

The trial before Lord Bracadale continues next week.
