Police Scotland are appealing for witnesses in connection with the sudden death of 62-year-old Christine Hilton from Dalbeattie.
The body of Mrs Hilton was discovered within her vehicle at a car parking area on the A762 approximately 1 mile north of Laurieston on the afternoon of Tuesday 27th November.
Detectives are treating the death as unexplained and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
Detective Inspector Dean Little of Dumfries CID said: “Enquiries have identified that Mrs Hilton’s grey Vauxhall Astra, registered number KD06 YZT, was within the car parking area to the east of Woodhall Loch which is situated 1 mile north of Laurieston on the A762 New Galloway Road on both Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th of November. I am keen to establish when the vehicle arrived at this location and would ask anybody who observed the vehicle there to make contact with the Police.
“A photograph of Mrs Hilton has also been circulated and I would urge anybody who seen her, or her vehicle in the days leading up to Tuesday 27th of November, to make contact with Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 2077 of 27th November.”
