Inverness police appeal after body found in Torvean Quarry
POLICE have appealed for information after a body was found in a tent in a secluded part of Torvean Quarry on the outskirts of Inverness.
Officers were called to the seen on Sunday evening after the body was discovered.
"Within the tent Police discovered human remains which appear to have been there for several months or longer. The identity, age and sex of the deceased person are unknown," said a police spokeswoman.
"It is not known how the person died, a post mortem will be held and the death is being treated as unexplained.
"The tent was in a secluded area of the quarry and was a distance away from paths used by the public.
"It appears that the person had been living in this tent for a period of time and it is likely he or she would have been seen by people nearby."
