Stirling Times - - News -

PO­LICE are search­ing for a man in re­la­tion to the death of 35-year-old Scarborough woman Re­becca Jane Gas­coigne on Fri­day night.

The man, 42-year-old Shawn Adam New­ton, is de­scribed as ex­tremely dan­ger­ous and mem­bers of the pub­lic have been warned not to ap­proach him.

Po­lice be­lieve he may be car­ry­ing a gun.

He is de­scribed as fair-skinned, about 186cm tall, with a medium build, very short dark hair and brown eyes.

Any­one who knows his lo­ca­tion should call po­lice on 131 44 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.

Ms Gas­coigne was found in a car near the Cedric Street of­framp in the early hours of Satur­day morn­ing.

A 49-year-old man, who was driv­ing the car at the time, was help­ing po­lice with their in­quiries.

Po­lice shut down a sec­tion of the free­way on Satur­day morn­ing while in­ves­ti­gat­ing the area.

They also at­tended sev­eral ad­dresses in Scarborough as part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion over the week­end.
