Police are continuing to hunt for the killers of a Polish man who was found in a burning car after being shot in the head one year ago.
Rafal Lyko, 36, from Auchterarder, was found in a stolen black Mercedes by officers at a car park in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, on Monday February 11 2019.
He vanished after visiting the Perthshire town, where his parents stay, just days before.
Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Jamieson, of the East Major Investigation Team, said he and his colleagues were determined to get justice for the sake of Mr Lyko’s loved ones.
“His family have been left devastated by his death and they deserve answers,” he said.
“We are determined to trace the person or persons responsible and bring them to justice.”
It is understood the 36-year-old car mechanic also travelled to Crieff before heading to the South Lanarkshire area.
Police Scotland have failed to charge anyone in connection with Mr Lyko’s murder.
Officers have marked the anniversary of his death with a fresh appeal for witnesses, saying they believe members of the community know who is responsible.
Police believe he and the black Mercedes were in the Blairbeth area of Rutherglen at around 7.30pm on the day he was killed.
Fifteen minutes later his body was discovered inside the blazing car at Greenhall Park, Blantyre.
DCI Jamieson said: “Our inquiries continue to establish why he was found in such horrific circumstances in Blantyre. We are being thorough in our inquiries to piece together the last known movements of Rafal.
“I continue appeal to anyone with information on Rafal’s whereabouts on February 11 or who may have seen the stolen Mercedes, no matter how small or insignificant they think it might be.
“It has been one year since Rafal was murdered and any piece of information could be vital to our investigation and may help us complete the bigger picture.
“I believe there are people in the community who know who is responsible for this murder. I would urge you to come forward. I can assure you that any information you provide will be treated with the utmost confidence.”
Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland via the Major Incident Public Portal website, the 101 number, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they want to remain anonymous.
