The killer of a woman murdered in a “brutal and sustained attack” is being hunted by police in Scotland.

Aimee Jane Cannon, 26, was found with a number of serious injuries inside a property in West Calder, West Lothian, at around 6.35pm on Saturday 7 May.

She was pronounced dead at the scene and detectives are treating her death as murder.

Detective Superintendent Andrew Patrick said: “Our thoughts are very much with Aimee’s family and friends at this difficult time for them.

“Aimee has been the victim of a brutal, sustained attack and we will have a continued police presence in the area while our investigation continues.

“I would like to reassure the local community that everything is being done to trace the person responsible.

“I would also urge anyone who may have information which could help our investigation to come forward.

“We would be keen to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard any signs of a disturbance at the property on Learmonth Crescent (West Calder) to get in touch.”

“We are also studying CCTV as part of our investigation and anyone who may have private footage, perhaps from a dashcam or doorbell camera, is asked to check this and pass on anything notable to us.”
