Yep, it sounds bad
I haven’t heard any rumours (although I am in the Highlands of Scotland so I wouldn’t expect to). I hope that for Tony’s sake, the rumours turn out to be just that...rumours. I hope he didn’t suffer
It’s more how these boys have behaved in the past 3 years and even after being arrested and released .
They really are vile. I hope Tony’s family get the justice they deserve .
They're not boys though, they are men.
Do you know if they have been arrested again?
I know this is highly unlikely to be related, but.... just to be thorough....

I read a comment about this case from the victim's friend on another discussion about Tony. I only just found out about this recently. Makes you wonder.
I’d never heard this story. How terrible it was never investigated with all of that evidence A lot goes on in bridge of orchy who would of thought?!
Glad we usually used to camp by the Inveroran instead
the police should be hauled over the coals for that "investigation".
The area surrounding Glen Nevis has seen a few disappearances a few years back as well, i remember Eric Cyl disappearing whilst hiking the Ring of Steall and then another 2 within a 30 mile radius not too long after. As far as i know none were ever found. I know these are big areas but the sheer number of hikers, you would think someone would have came across something. Always makes me suspicious of whats happened.

Well, it's a big area as you say, so I think you'd expect walkers and climbers to go missing from time to time but Nicholas Randall's body, like Tony Parsons was found in Auch, which feels more statistically interesting to me.
Ive not seen or heard a thing. I assume there has been arrests but don’t know if we’ll find out until there’s a court date. It’s weirdly quiet.
Until the post mortem is complete and there's strong, provable evidence of what's happened, i don't think there'll be further arrests.
Hope the family get justice however long it takes
Does anyone know how long post mortems typically take for (presumably lightly decomposed) bodies in what is presumably now a murder investigation?
The results should be available within three weeks. I would expect some news later this week or early next week at the latest.
Taking a bit longer than expected.
I've not been on this website for a long time and Tony's disappearance has always been on my mind. I'm so glad his body has finally been found but it is utterly heartbreaking to see that he has been murdered. I didn't expect that at all. I really can't believe it. Poor Tony, I really hope he didn't suffer and it was quick and painless. I hope his family will be OK and that those who took his life will rot in jail. If he had just stayed at the hotel when the person suggested he did he would still be alive today. My heart goes out to Tony and to everyone involved. RIP Tony.
I've always wanted to walk along the WHW in that area but the link re the mysteriousness surrounding bridge of orchy has put me off. I have camped around that area a couple of times too.
Until the results of the post-mortem and subsequent charges are made public, I don't think we can assume either way whether it's murder or manslaughter. The most reasonable theory (in my opinion) is the pair hit Tony with their vehicle, realised they'd killed him and buried him on the estate to cover it up. In that case it wouldn't meet the 'premeditation' criteria for murder. I'm not a legal expert though.
If it makes you feel any better, Bridge of Orchy is not a particular murder/missing person hotspot. Here is a map of (some) missing people in Scotland, originally from this reddit post.
