Probe over mys­tery body find

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

A house close to where a woman’s body was found came un­der in­tense po­lice scru­tiny yes­ter­day.

The grim dis­cov­ery of her body, in a quiet coun­try lane be­tween Auchter­arder and Dun­ning, Perthshire, has left the tight-knit com­mu­nity in shock.

Spe­cial­ist po­lice of­fi­cers from the Ma­jor In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team car­ried out door-todoor in­ter­views to piece to­gether the last hours of the woman who, ac­cord­ing to lo­cals, had only re­cently moved into the area.

The B8062 road where the woman’s body was found around noon on Thurs­day, in a wooded area close to the road­side, re­mained closed off as po­lice con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate.

Towns­folk say the woman had only been in the area for a few months with one per­son say­ing: “I knew her to say hello, but she kept to her­self.”

Last night, De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent Jim Smith ap­pealed to those who saw any­thing sus­pi­cious on the road in the days lead­ing up to the dis­cov­ery.

He said: “No mat­ter how in­signif­i­cant the in­for­ma­tion you have it may prove vi­tal.”
