Murder in Nairn - DNA tests on witness samples

DNA samples recovered during forensic examinations of the area are to be compared with DNA samples taken from witnesses known to have been in the area subsequent to the murder of Alistair Wilson, with the aim of eliminating them from the inquiry.

There is reported as yet to be no known motive for the murder. Where are Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot when you need them? My most recent previous article on this matter is here.

UPDATE: (Friday 4FEB05 00.40 GMT) DNA tests on witnesses are to be carried out at Nairn Police Station over the next two days.
