The unsolved murder of Alistair Wilson
Peter Bleksley’s search for the truth behind the doorstep murder.
On 28th November 2004, banker and father-of-two Alistair Wilson was shot three times on his doorstep in a killing more commonly associated with inner city gang wars than a sleepy seaside town in the Scottish Highlands. Eighteen years later, the question remains: why?
Who would wish to kill this respectable husband and family man in such a brutal fashion? Was it simply a tragic case of mistaken identity, or did someone have a reason to end the thirty-year-old’s life? And what was the significance of the envelope handed to him before he was fatally wounded?
Over the years, many theories have been investigated and dismissed, gossip has spread, and rumours have been debated at length. And yet, so long after Alistair’s death, no arrest has ever been made. 2022 has seen many developments in this case, and Peter’s work is far from over. The truth will out.
