Police investigating the murder of Kirkcaldy man Kevin Byrne have thanked members of the public who have come forward with information.
Mr Byrne, who was also known as Kevin Forrester, was found dead at his home in Alison Street on Tuesday February 5.
Detective Inspector Carol Craig from Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team said: “The one thing that has become abundantly clear during this investigation is that the local community are keen to speak with police and help us get the answers Kevin Byrne’s family deserve in relation to his murder.”
The 45-year-old, who had an amputated leg and walked using crutches, is believed to have lived alone in the one storey property in Kirkcaldy.
On Sunday, officers returned to Alison Street, where the bungalow remains boarded up and surrounded by a police cordon, to interview members of the public and speak to passing motorists.
“We are extremely grateful to all of those who spoke with us during Sunday afternoon and any relevant information will be appropriately acted upon,” said Ms Craig.
“At this time, none of the statements we gathered have provided us with any new evidential leads to identify those responsible, but I remain confident that someone will have a vital piece of information that can help us bring Kevin’s killer to justice.
“If you believe you can assist with this investigation please contact police immediately.”
Officers are keen to piece together what happened between the last time Mr Byrne is believed to have been seen alive, on Sunday February 3, and when he was found dead. It was with this in mind that officers revisited the scene on Sunday, exactly a fortnight later.
In total, 34 people were spoken to on Sunday. Police said some provided information which will be looked into further by detectives.
Police urged those who believe they may still have relevant information, but who have not yet spoken to police, to come forward.
Members of the public can contact the Major Investigation Team by phoning 101 and quoting incident number 915 of February 5. Alternatively, an anonymous report can be made to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
