Robertson was found dead around 8.30pm after a crash on the C50, a road between the B7036 and the A76.
Today, forensics cops were on the scene, near Auchinleck, probing the crash site.
A number of officers in white suits surrounded the motor, which was in the grass verge at the side of the road.
A tarpaulin covered the car to shroud it from view before temporary fencing was put in place across the minor road.
Emergency services swooped on all three incidents last night.
Cops locked down Crosshouse and cordoned off a section of the town near the Portland Street viaduct.
Officers were seen running on foot through the town centre as they responded to the serious incidents.
An onlooker described a “very tense atmosphere” as cops locked down an area around the viaduct.
Loved ones of Emma and Nicole paid tribute to the pair following their tragic deaths.
Emma’s heartbroken sister said she was “totally broken”, while on of her daughters, Nicole’s sister, said: “Life will never be the same without you”.
Nicole’s fiancée took to social media to pay an emotional tribute as she revealed she’s been left “completely broken”.
And Nicola Sturgeon and John Swinney both expressed their sympathies with Emma and Nicole’s loved ones – and thanked emergency workers for their response.
