Apparently there a "no suspicious circumstances" surrounding the discovery of the body of a lady confirmed as being that of Melinda Simpson at Culbin Sands, about four miles east of Nairn. Apparently she was employed at Raigmore Hospital catering department and the 43-year-old was last seen in the Millburn road area of Inverness between 7pm and 8pm on Wednesday and was walking away from the city centre. In the time-honoured phrase - "A report will be made to the procurator fiscal." - this is a normal part of the procedure under Scots Law when investigating unusual occurrences. I suspect that, very unfortunately, there is a very tragic story behind the events reported in the source articles below.
