A police watchdog probe was launched after the remains of the 52-year-old were found in a house in Dumfries in February last year.
Body Found In Search For Missing Scot
A body has been found in the search for a missing botanist who disappeared while visiting Vietnam more than two years ago.
Jamie Taggart, from Argyll and Bute, failed to return from an expedition to the northern, mountainous region of the country.
He set off on a trip from his hotel in the Sa Pa district on October 31 2013.
His passport was found in the hotel and he failed to check in for a scheduled flight home to Scotland the following month.
In March, Mr Taggart's mother Jill Mary went to Vietnam to search for clues about his disappearance.
She joined local tribespeople and police for fresh searches but they found no sign of him.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are in contact with local authorities in Vietnam regarding Jamie Taggart.
"This is a very difficult time for his family and we will remain in close contact with them.''
His sister Janet Skidmore posted on Facebook: "My brother has been found. RIP Jamie. I will miss you till I see you again. your big sister love always xxxxxx.''
Mr Taggart, who was aged 41 when he went missing, ran Linn Botanic Gardens in the village of Cove on the Rosneath peninsula.
His friends and the local community have raised thousands of pounds to fund searches for him, with actor Hugh Grant, who has family ties to the area, making a donation.
The accident happened at about 7.50pm on Thursday in Moodiesburn, North Lanarkshire.
More than 70 firefighters were needed to bring the blaze under control at Blochairn Fruit Market in the early hours of Thursday.
The multi-coloured walkway will run up to the entrance of Silverburn shopping centre between Saturday and Sunday.
