Killing AW would not have withdrawn his letter of objection to the retrospective planning application as it had already been received, so there was nothing to gain in the planning process by murdering him. It would be interesting to read minutes of the planning committee and the officer's report as to whether AW's objection was based on a material consideration or whether the retrospective application was almost a formality, as if often the case. Demolition would be the very last resort for the Local Planning Authority. It would be interesting to know on what basis AW was objecting. Not liking something is not sufficient grounds for objection.ByOver centuries Scotland has adopted various unexplained and unsolved events which fascinate people far and wide.www.scottishdailyexpress.co.uk

''Bank manager Alistair Wilson was shot dead on the doorstep of his home in Nairn on 28 November 2004 by a stocky man wearing a baseball cap.
The police inquiry into the shooting has focused on a Haenel Suhl Model 1 Schmeisser’s patent handgun, made in Germany between 1920 and 1945, which was found down a street drain in the town.
The ammunition used in the shooting was made by Sellier and Bellot in the Czech Republic between 1983 and 1993.
Despite intense efforts, the police have yet to find the killer.''

''The Canada jaunt garnered lots of Media headlines, just as it was intended to do. From that point of view, it did at least catapult the case back into the public’s consciousness. But as someone in the decking business recently pointed out, ripping up forecourt paving would cost a hell of a lot less than hiring an assassin.
Where does all this leave us now? It leaves us wondering why Police Scotland and legacy force Northern Constabulary took 13 years to confirm the name "Paul" was scrawled on the envelope. It leaves us wondering why no e-fit of the man Veronica Wilson spoke to on her doorstep, up close and personal, was ever issued, particularly when another witness saw an identical man in Nairn around the same time on the same night.''
''It leaves us with more questions than answers, and a persistent feeling there is a lot more to this case than has hitherto been revealed.''
It only takes VW's account, which has always left a lot to be desired from a publicly-released details point of view, to allow for a variant of 'he asked for my husband by name' to 'he asked for my husband', to make mistaken identity very plausible, IMO.
