    Jean Campbell, 53, was murdered in December

Glasgow grandmother Jean Campbell was brutally killed in Cranhill Park almost six months.
Her daughter Lianne, 34, will today make a TV appeal in a bid to catch her mother’s killer.
Speaking through tears, she said: “My dad always walked the dog before work.
“But I do know,
obviously later on that night, she’s taken the dog out twice, for whatever reason.
“And the second time, she never made it home.”
Tonight, a reconstruction of the murder, which took place near a playpark, will be shown on the BBC’s Crimewatch show.
Mrs Campbell, 53, was last seen walking with her dog towards
Cranhill Park, near her home in the East End, on Friday, December 13.
Her body was discovered at around 7.40am the next day by her husband who, on returning from his night shift, realised she was not home and went to look for her.
As previously reported by the Evening Times, the murder inquiry has seen police take more than 1500 DNA samples from both men and women in the Cranhill area.
Detective Chief
Inspector Colin Carey will also appear on BBC1’s Crimewatch to appeal to the public for information.
Mr Carey said: “The person responsible for her murder and the
reason why it happened have still to be established.
“We believe the local community holds the key to solving this inquiry and I would again appeal to anyone with information to come forward to police.”
Crimestoppers is
offering a reward of up to £5000 for information on the murder.
Mr Carey added:
“I really do believe that there is someone out there who is either
harbouring the person responsible or knows who is responsible, but has not been in contact with police.
“This can, of course,
be for a number of
reasons; fear or intimidation being the most obvious.”
