Suzanne Pilley was a 38 year old woman from Edinburgh, Scotland. She was described by her parents as a very proud Scot, someone who loved the outdoors and enjoyed cycling, walking and keeping fit. She enjoyed fundraising, having abseiled off the Forth Rail Bridge for charity, and had run in her office team in the Edinburgh Marathon Relay.
She worked as a bookkeeper for Infrastructure Managers Ltd (IML), based on Thistle Street in central Edinburgh and was as a popular member of the team, described by her employer as being extremely dependable, and not someone who ever arrived late or took unexplained sick days. She enjoyed the social side of the office too often having a chat and laugh with her colleagues in the office kitchen at lunchtimes.

She became romantically involved with one of these colleagues, a married man named David Gilroy. While the two enjoyed good times initially, as time went on the relationship became more and more destructive and toxic, until such a time as Suzanne decided to break free and end it.

Just days afterwards, Suzanne wouldn’t turn up for work one Tuesday morning, setting off a chain of events that would see the police launch what would turn out to be one of the largest missing persons enquiries in Scottish history, and ultimately a see conviction of murder for David Gilroy. But Suzanne's body has never been found, and Gilroy maintains his innocence. So what happened to Suzanne? Is Gilroy responsible for her murder? And if so, where did he dispose of her remains? Is Suzanne even definitely dead?

This is the case of the disappearance of Suzanne Pilley.
