East Kilbride News - - NEWS - An­drea O’Neill

Po­lice are now try­ing to trace two ve­hi­cles in the hunt for clues over Craig Kear­ney’s tragic death.

Now five weeks into the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, de­tec­tives are urg­ing any­one who drove along Lochranza Drive in Lind­say­field be­tween 1.45am and 2.30am on March 5 to come for­ward.

In par­tic­u­lar they are look­ing for the driver of a small black car, be­lieved to be a Vaux­hall Corsa or Volk­swa­gen Polo, which they be­lieve can help with their en­quiries.

Po­lice this week re­vealed they are now search­ing for a sec­ond ve­hi­cle spot­ted in the area.

Due to poor CCTV cov­er­age no fur­ther in­for­ma­tion could be pro­vided about the make, model or colour of the car.

Craig, 24, from Neil­ston, Ren­frew­shire, was found dy­ing by the road­side af­ter vis­it­ing his girl­friend, who lives nearby. He died from his in­juries at the scene.

A 46-year-old man was freed from po­lice cus­tody af­ter be­ing ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent.

Let­ters ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion from res­i­dents of Lind­say­field were dis­trib­uted in the area last week.

A po­lice spokes­woman said: “Po­lice are look­ing to trace two ve­hi­cles who en­tered the Lochranza Drive es­tate be­tween 1.45am and 2.30am. If any­one drove into the es­tate dur­ing this time please con­tact po­lice on 101.”
