Family launch fundraiser for 'beautiful' daughter of couple found dead 

Officers found the bodies of Neil and Alison McLaughlin after being called out to a property in Inverclyde.

A fundraiser has been launched to help the daughter of a couple found dead in Greenock.

Lynne Hogan has appealed for donations for her “beautiful future daughter-in-law” Robyn McLaughlin whose parents were found dead on Friday.

Officers were called to an address on Banff Road just after 5pm on January 5, after reports of concern for the people inside.

Neil and Alison McLaughlin were found dead at the scene.

Lynne has said that Robyn gave birth to their granddaughter just three weeks ago, and wants to ease one worry for the young mum under the “tragic” circumstances.

“I know times are financially difficult for everyone but anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this,” Lynne wrote on Go Fund Me.

The fundraiser has quickly gained attention online and has already received 118 donations, raising £3,175 of the £5,000 goal.

Detective inspector Gordon Smith said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Neil and Alison.

“We are providing their families with specialist support at this incredibly difficult time. They have asked for privacy.

“The deaths are currently being treated as unexplained and enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.

“At this time we have no information to suggest anyone else is involved in connection with the deaths and there is no risk to the wider public.

“A police presence will remain in the area while our investigation continues and anyone with concerns should speak to officers.

“A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
