Pathologis­t unable to discover Emma’s cause of death, trial told

- By Grant McCabe

A PATHOLOGIS­T could not establish how an alleged murder victim died, a court was told yesterday.

Dr John Williams carried out a post-mortem examinatio­n on the body of 39-year-old Emma Faulds.

Her remains had been discovered in Glentrool Forest in Dumfriessh­ire on June 12, 2019.

Dr Williams told the High Court in Glasgow that decomposit­ion ‘limited’ what could be concluded. He said he could not be ‘definite’ as to when she died. Reading from his report he stated: ‘In summary, the medical cause of death has not been establishe­d.’ Ross Willox, 41, denies murdering Miss Faulds, pictured, at his home in Monkton, Ayrshire, on April 28, 2019, by unknown means and dumping her body. The trial, before judge Lord Mulholland, continues.
