Fresh hunt for banker death clues.

POLICE will make a fresh appeal today in a bid to solve the murder of a banker who was gunned down on his doorstep 10 years ago.

Despite a PS2million manhunt, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting of Alistair Wilson, 30, in Nairn on November 28, 2004.

A statement from his family will be read at today's press conference in Inverness as detectives hope to uncover new clues.

Alistair was putting his sons, then four and two, to bed when the doorbell rang.

His wife Veronica answered the door to a stocky, cleanshaven man, aged between 35 and 40. He was wearing a baseball cap and asked for her husband by name.

The murderer handed Alistair an A4 envelope. He took it inside, where he had a short discussion with his wife, but then returned to the doorstep, where he was shot at point-blank range.

The Haenel Suhl Model 1 Schmeisser handgun, made in Germany between 1920 and 1945, was found in a drain in Nairn 10 days later but the envelope disappeared.

Police have never revealed details of the conversation between Alistair and Veronica.
