NEW witnesses have come forward in the hunt for the killer of brutally-stabbed Julie Gallagher.
Two weeks after the 41-year-old was last seen alive, murder team detectives said yesterday that their appeal for help in tracing her vicious attacker had proved “very helpful.”
Mrs Gallagher’s body was found at her terraced home in Foljambe Road, Eastwood, on the afternoon of Saturday, March 27.

She was last seen leaving the Cranworth pub on Fitzwilliam Road, Eastwood, at 1.15am on Thursday, March 25.
CCTV footage has been released of Mrs Gallagher outside the Cranworth pub the day before.
Police believe that Mrs Gallagher “probably knew her killer.”
Det Supt Colin Fisher, who is leading the murder investigation, said: “We are still assessing the very helpful response to last week’s operation.
“The investigation team worked throughout the Easter break and a number of witnesses have come forward.
“We continue to assess items seized for forensic examination.”
