Police investigat­ing the murder of Kirkcaldy man Darren Adie believe seven people may hold vital informatio­n.

The 42-year-old was found slumped in the town’s Tweed Avenue, close to its junction with Lawson Street, at around 6.45pm on Saturday May 28

Officers from the major investigat­ion team probing the murder believe several people who saw or interacted with Mr Adie just before his tragic death may hold clues which could help catch his killer. They include: Someone known as “Kelly”, to whom Mr Adie was shouting between 6pm and 6.30pm in the Overton Mains area near Overton Road.

A heavily-built man in his forties with a balding or shaved head wearing a T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms. He is thought to have spoken to Mr Adie in passing on Spey Avenue at its junction with Napier Street at around 6.45pm.

A man and woman who were pushing a buggy on Tweed Avenue – possibly a double buggy. They were walking towards Napier Street around 6.45pm.

Another man and woman on Tweed Avenue at the same time. The man, in his late twenties or early thirties, was around 6ft tall and walking with a limp.

A slim-built man wearing a hooded sweatshirt on Tweed Avenue around 6.45pm.

Detective Chief Inspector Raymond Brown said: “We are keen to speak to these individual­s.

“We believe they may have seen Darren and may hold informatio­n that, although they may consider insignific­ant, could prove vital in identifyin­g his killer.

“As such I would urge them to come forward and speak to the police as soon as possible. I’m asking them to, please, contact us on 101, or speak to an officer in the street.”

Alternativ­ely, anyone with informatio­n about this investigat­ion or the individual­s can call Crimestopp­ers anonymousl­y on 0800 555 111.
