Murder Investigation In Fife

The death of a man found unconscious in a Fife street is being treated by police as murder.

Darren Adie, 42, was found lying in Kirkcaldy's Tweed Avenue, near the Lawson Street junction, at around 6.45pm on Saturday.

He was taken to the town's Victoria Hospital, where he later died.

Police Scotland had been considering the death "suspicious'' but later confirmed they were treating it as a case of murder following the results of a post-mortem examination.

Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Raymond Brown, of the major investigation team, said: "Our condolences go to Darren's family and friends at this extremely difficult time.

"A thorough and robust investigation is currently under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding Darren's death.

"I want to thank the community for their cooperation so far and urge anyone with information who has not yet come forward to get in touch.''

Anyone with information can speak to a local officer or call the force on 101. Crimestoppers can be reached anonymously on 0800 555 111.
