Who was Alistair Wilson?

Alistair Wilson was 30 years old at the time of his murder on November 28, 2004.

He worked as a business manager at the local Bank of Scotland at the time of his death.

He was married to his wife Veronica and a father to two young children.

He lived in Nairn, a small Highland town in Scotland, with his young family before he died.

His murder triggered one of the largest inquiries to take place in Scotland.

Wilson is the subject of Channel 5’s Murder on the Doorstep: Who Killed Alistair Wilson?

What happened to Alistair Wilson?

Wilson was home with his family on the day of his murder and was expecting friends to arrive imminently.

Around 7pm, Veronica answered the door to a man who asked for Alistair by name.

The unidentified male was wearing a baseball cap, dark blue jacket and jeans.

Alistair came to the door where the man gave him an envelope with the name “Paul” on it.

The envelope was empty, prompting Alistair to go back to the door to speak with the man when gunshots were fired.

Veronica heard three gunshots, went to the door and found her husband had been shot.

Alistair died later that evening in hospital.

The killer disappeared into the night and is still at large.

Who has been charged with Alistair Wilson’s murder?

The murder of Alistair Wilson remains unsolved as of May 2023.

No charge has been brought forward, but Police Scotland is still investigating the crime.

They are also trying to determine a potential motive behind his killing, and believe they may be close to finding one.

In October 2020, The Guardian reported that Alistair’s son Andrew was appealing for information about his father’s murder.

In April 2022, Scottish police announced that Alistair’s involvement in a local planning dispute was a likely motive for his murder.

What is known is that the murder was around the time of an impending smoking ban on Scottish pubs.

The pub across the road from his house, The Havelock Hotel, had recently built a decking area in the car park of the pub without planning permission.

When they applied for permission, Wilson objected due to the noise and disturbance he believed it would cause.

The decking was paid for and built by locals, some of whom were said to be unhappy with Wilson’s reservations.

The pub’s landlord at the time, Andy Burnett, was one of the last people to see him alive and was assisting police as a key witness. He is not a suspect.
