Police have received an anonymous letter in the investigation of the murder of north-east pensioner Brian McKandie.
Investigating officers received the letter at their Aberdeenshire office in late March from an unnamed source giving information on the death of Mr McKandie.
Now police are urging the author of that letter to come forward as the search for Mr McKandie’s killer goes on.
Detective Chief Inspector Iain Smith said: “In late March an anonymous letter was received which provided some information regarding the death of Mr McKandie.
“I would like to appeal to that person to come forward and identify themselves as we believe they may hold information which will assist us with the investigation into his death.”
