Police will return to the scene of a murder in Kirkcaldy to ask residents for help with their investigation.

The body of Kevin Byrne, known locally as Kevin Forrester, was found at an address in Alison Street at around 10am on Tuesday, February 5.

Following a post-mortem examination, the 45-year-old's death is being treated as murder.

Pedestrians and motorists will be stopped between 3.30pm and 6.30pm on Sunday and asked if they can remember any suspicious activity in the area a fortnight before - believed to be the last time Kevin was seen alive.

Detective Inspector Carol Craig said: "We are committed to provide Kevin's family with the answers they deserve in relation to his death and as part of our ongoing inquiries we are revisiting Alison Street on Sunday to try and get vital information from the local community.

"Our officers will be engaging with those who live in the area, as well as those passing through, to establish if anyone saw or heard anything that might be of interest or significance to this investigation.

"Prior to our revisit, however, if anyone believes they have information that can help bring those responsible for Kevin's murder to justice, then please contact police immediately."
