A burned body was found at Carnoustie. There has to be the makings of a really interesting golf mystery novel here.
Det Ch Insp Graham McMillan, who is leading the investigation, said greenkeepers had been preparing the Carnoustie courses when one of them saw what appeared to be a body on fire and called the police.
“On their arrival they found a body lying by the 11th tee with fire damage. It was smouldering at that time,” he said.
“Thereafter it was treated as a suspicious incident. The area was cordoned off and a tent was erected to protect the body.”
Mr McMillan added that a forensic investigation was being carried out within the tented area and the body would be taken to the police mortuary at Dundee on Wednesday afternoon.
