GLASGOW POLICE HAVE located the young woman they hoped to question as a potential witness in the Karen Buckley murder investigation.

“The woman in the CCTV image has now been traced,” a policed statement said.

“We would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance with this matter.”

Earlier this morning the police released a photo of the woman captured on CCTV footage in Glasgow, close to the Sanctuary nightclub, the night that Karen Buckley disappeared.

The woman was filmed at about 12.30 am on Sunday, 12 April on the Dumbarton Road near to the Gallus Pub before walking along Church Street.

She then got into a Hackney taxi on Byres Road which drove off towards Great Western Road.

Detective Superintendent Jim Kerr of Glasgow Police had previously stressed that the woman is “in no way connected with the death of Karen” but that she “may have information that could assist the investigation”.

Karen Buckley, originally from Cork, was last seen by friends in the Sanctuary nightclub late on the night of 11 April.

She was found murdered on a farm on the outskirts of Glasgow a week later.

Alexander Pacteau (21) has since been charged with Karen’s murder.
