A twisted criminal sexually abused and murdered his own sister before posting a frightening Facebook tribute to her in which he stated that he “especially” missed her.

On November 26, 2021, Connor Gibson, 20, was convicted of assaulting his sister Amber in forest in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire.

Gibson rejected the charges, but was convicted guilty after a 13-day trial at Glasgow’s High Court.

He removed her clothes, sexually abused her with the goal of raping her, inflicted blunt force trauma to her head and body, and choked her, the court heard.

Days later, he paid her respect on social media, posting on Facebook, “Amber, you will fly high for the rest of time.” We are all going to miss you. Particularly me. I adore you, you ginger midget. GBFN (goodbye for the time being) X”.

Amber Gibson

Amber went missing on Friday, November 26, and her body was recovered in Cadzow Glen at 10.10 a.m. on November 28.

Gibson was detained on December 1, three days after his homage.

According to the court, Gibson, also known as Craig Niven, did not appear distraught when he spoke to his and Amber’s former foster father, Craig Niven, on the day Amber’s body was discovered.

Mr Niven testified that he would not leave the siblings in each other’s company because they were “not a good mix.”

Mr Niven and his wife had been caring for Amber and her brother since Amber was three and he was five. A few years ago, the couple was granted permanent custody of the siblings.

Connor was residing at Hamilton’s Blue Triangle homeless hostel at the time of Amber’s murder, while Amber was at the Hillhouse children’s home.

Mr Niven told the court he had not heard from his former foster son throughout Amber’s abduction, but Gibson told him in a phone call on the day her body was recovered that the two had “fallen out” when they saw each other two days before.

Stephen Corrigan, 45, was also on trial and was found guilty of attempting to frustrate the ends of justice by intimately handling and concealing Amber’s body after discovering her at some time in the following two days, rather than calling 911.

Corrigan, who was reported in court to be unknown to Gibson, rejected the charge and filed a special defense of alibi.

They will be sentenced in the future.
