Workers Secure Home After Mobile Phone & Laptop Theft


By Paul Thornton

THE former lover of missing Edinburgh bookkeeper Suzanne Pilley had his home secured again today (fri) after a break-in in which he claims a mobile phone and laptop were stolen.

David Gilroy, 47, welcomed glaziers to his house following a break-in at the Silverknowes Brae address two weeks ago.

On May 24 Mr Gilroy told how his back door had been broken during an early morning raid.

He said a laptop a Nintendo Wii and a mobile phone were taken.

Workers from Martindales Double Glazing arrived at the property this morning  just before 10.30am to replace the door.

They spent around an hour working on the damage before returning with the old door.

One worker confirmed that Mr Gilroy was at home.

And a delivery firm later showed up with a package for the dad-of-two.

The DPD Global Express courier appeared to hand over a Hewlitt Packard laptop which Mr Gilroy’s wife Andrea signed for.

Mr Gilroy, Suzanne’s former lover, has denied having anything to do with her disappearance at her work in Edinburgh.

Mr Gilroy and Suzanne were colleagues at Infrastructure Managers before she went missing.

He has since been suspended from the company.

Detectives believe the 38 year old woman was murdered and her body dumped in woodland in Argyll.

Police have seized a silver car and are appealing for people who may have seen a vehicle that colour in the Rest and Be Thankful area in the days after Suzanne disappeared on May 4.

Mr Gilroy has refused to comment on speculation about his own movements during that time.
