''THE gunman who murdered a banker on his doorstep may have escaped by boat.
One craft was spotted in the harbour at Nairn last Sunday, the day 30-year-old dad-of-two Alistair Wilson was shot dead at his home in the town.
Detectives are also checking reports that a speedboat was found at the Black Isle, on the opposite side of the Moray Firth.
More than 40 officers are going through Alistair's affairs,looking for a possible motive for the murder.''
''Two men were seen with a gun on a beach at Nairn a month before a father-of-two was shot on the doorstep of his home in the town, say police.

Bank manager Alistair Wilson was shot on the evening of 28 November 2004. He later died in hospital.
Police said a witness has described seeing two men - one aged in their 20s and the other between 40 and 60 years old - on Nairn's East Beach.
The younger of the men was said to have been in possession of a handgun.
The beach is only a short walk from the Wilson's family home.''
Excellent work as always @dotr.
But I have to say the supposed sighting of the 2 men reported in 2022 seems very unlikely to me reported as it was more than 17 years after the shooting. Smacks of a red herring.
