Police investigating the murder of Leven woman Mary Logie have thanked the public for their help during the investigation.

DCI Keith Hardie said: “The response from the Leven community has been very favourable and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come forward and assisted with our appeal.

“Officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the area and the reaction from residents has been one of shock and disgust over this despicable crime.

“However, local people have voiced their strong support for our investigation and I thank them for their patience and assistance.

“Again, I ask anyone who has any information that can assist with this ongoing murder inquiry to please contact police on 101 or alternatively the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Police are investigating the murder of Mrs Logie (82) who was found with head injuries in her own home in Leven on Tuesday evening.

They are still trying to piece together her movements from when she was last seen at around 8am that day, and when she was discovered by a concerned neighbour in the evening.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, DCI Hardie said police could not rule out theft as a motive for the crime.
