Mystery still surrounds the death of a Dundee man who was found dying in a city street more than a year ago.
John Ogston, 67, was found with serious injuries on Mains Road in the Hilltown on New Years’ night 2018.
He had been on his way home from a nearby pub with a friend when he was fatally injured.
Soon after the discovery the police realised John’s injuries were consistent with having been run over by a car and stepped up efforts to find out what vehicles were in the vicinity that night.
The investigation was hampered by distant and poor quality CCTV footage of the Bayne Square junction with police sources describing it as one of the most frustrating cases in recent years.
Police spent months searching for clues and questioning local drivers in a bid to find any witnesses and alert the driver, who they believe was oblivious to the fact he or she had run over John.
Coldside Labour councillor George McIrvine said: “After over a year surrounding the tragic circumstances of Mr Ogston it is only right to make another plea to the public in the hope they may have heard of someone being involved in an accident to make contact with the Police to assist in their ongoing enquiry.
“I hope for a positive outcome, for the sake of the family, in order to provide them with some closure.”
Crimestoppers National Manager, Angela Parker: “Over a year has passed since John’s death and still those that knew him are left with unanswered questions.
“We as a charity understand that sometimes going to the police isn’t an option for people, which is why we offer how service that guarantees your anonymity, and ensures you have a voice, without having to reveal who you are.

“Mr Ogston’s family have been fully informed of the progress of the enquiry.
“If anyone has any new information that could assist the investigation please contact Police via the non-emergency number 101, alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.”
