DETECTIVES are following up a new lead on the murder of banker Alistair Wilson shot on the doorstep of his family home in Nairn.
The information — which comes nearly seven years after his death — claims an international link to the crime, with a tip-off saying the clue might lie in China.
The caller to The Inverness Courier claimed he was a Dutch charity worker who met a Highland man who knew the killer of 30-year-old Mr Wilson.
During the conversation, lasting almost 20 minutes, the contact first enquired if the case had been solved and went on to name the man he met abroad and give details of where and when.
"He said he knew all about it. He knew this Mr Wilson and knows the man who killed him," said the caller.
Mr Wilson, manager at Bank of Scotland at Inverness’s Beechwood Business Park, was murdered on Sunday 28th November 2004 at his Victorian villa in Crescent Road and the case remains open.See today's Inverness Courier for the full story.
