The family of murdered Kirkcaldy man, Darren Adie, have issued an emotional tribute to him as detectives make a further appeal for information to track down his killer.
Through Police Scotland, Mr Adie’s heartbroken family said: “Darren was a much loved son, brother and father who will be sorely missed.”
They talked about their gratitude for the support shown by family and friends.
And they asked for privacy as they came to terms with their loss.
Mr Adie was found unconscious on Kirkcaldy’s Tweed Avenue close to the junction with Lawson Street at around 6.45pm last Saturday.
He was rushed to the Victoria Hospital where he later died.
Inquiries so far have established that there were people in Tweed Avenue and on other streets in the Gallatown area around this time who may have information that can help police in the investigation.
Detective Chief Inspector Raymond Brown, of Police Scotland’s major investigation team, said: “I want to thank the community for their cooperation and assistance so far.
“Darren was well known in the Gallatown area and I’m keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him on Saturday in the hours before he died.
“I would also ask anyone who was in the Gallatown area on Saturday and who may have seen something unusual or anyone acting suspiciously to please get in touch with us”.
Anyone with information can contact officers in the street, by telephoning 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
