Below is a small selection of photographs from the Willie MacRae crime scene that the Northern Constabulary released. Rumours have surfaced that as the police suspected this was just a normal RTA, all evidence was removed from the scene. When it was discovered that Mr MacRae was suspected of dying from a gunshot wound, the police brought all the evidence back to be photographed at the scene.
