Police say inquiries are ongoing after the body of a 56-year-old woman was found inside a campervan in Fife.
The death is being treated as unexplained after the discovery on September 12.
Scenes of crime officers were spotted at the site in West Wemyss in Fife, but it is understood the death is not being treated as suspicious.
One resident who lives just yards from where the body was found told The Courier that the campervan had been parked up for months.
Car park ‘sealed off suddenly’
She said: “Suddenly, without warning, police started turning up in large numbers out of nowhere.
“The whole car park area was sealed off and I saw a number of white suited forensic officers going in and out of the campervan.”
Police carried out door-to-door inquiries on Tuesday afternoon, more than 24 hours after the car park in the village – famed as a location for the hit TV drama Outlander – was first sealed off.
Another resident, who asked not to be named, said a woman had been living in the campervan for about 18 months.
She said: “The campervan was initially parked up at the harbour but was then moved down to the car park in February or March of this year.
“It’s been here for about 18 months now I’d say.
“Most people knew of her and she was seen about the village regularly.
“Police officers and detectives have been to my door four times already since the area was taped off.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 1.50pm on Monday, we were called to Coxstool car park, West Wemyss, after a body was found.
“Officers attended and the body of a 56-year-old woman was found within a campervan.
“The death is currently being treated as unexplained and inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.”
