Being from Scotland, it's certainly a bit of a mysterious one although I would like to note that certain parts of Greenock are not for the faint hearted and I find it strange that they went out for half an hour at 12.30am or something, that to me indicates a drug deal.
A MUM and daughter found dying in a hotel bloodbath had overdosed on painkillers before slashing their arms, sources said yesterday. Margaret McDonough, 52, died on Friday soon after being found with horrific wounds in a budget hotel room.
Her charity worker daughter Nicola, 23, who was found unconscious in a nearby corridor with similar deep slash wounds, lost her fight for life on Monday. Police have confirmed they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths of the two women, who are from Paisley.
A source said last night: “These women suffered horrific injuries to their arms and if the mum had survived she would have had to have her arms amputated they were so bad. “Both arms were slashed from the wrist to the top and her daughter had similar injuries, which stopped at the top of her lower arms. “They had also taken a massive amount of paracetamol.
It is such a terrible tragedy. “No one knows what drove them to this but whatever it was it must have been really bad.” Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to confirm that the pair had taken paracetamol.
They would not discuss details of their injuries yesterday. The pair had been reported missing 17 hours before they were discovered with horror injuries at the Premier Inn in Greenock. The alarm was raised when former Lib Dem council candidate Margaret, who also had three grown-up sons, had failed to pick up her foster son from nursery in Paisley.
Officers are asking friends and family about any turbulence in their lives that may be significant.
