Detectives leading the investigation into the murder of Brian McKandie continue to carry out extensive inquiries as the one year mark of his death approaches.
Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team has been re-visiting customers and acquaintances of the 67-year-old in Rothienorman and beyond as they continue to build a picture of his life before his body was discovered at Fairview Cottages, Bandenscoth, on Saturday March 12 last year. Officers will also be commencing searches of roads verges in the area today (Monday February 20, 2017) as part of the ongoing investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Iain Smith said
We continue to actively investigate the death of Mr McKandie with extensive inquiries being carried out not just in the Rothienorman area, but across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Customers and acquaintances are being re-visited, along with exploring other potential lines of inquiry.
Next month will mark one year since Brian was found within his home, which means a whole year his family have had to deal with the fact he was taken from them in the most tragic of circumstances. They have lost a much-loved member of their family and just want to know why.
