Police launch appeal to trace pensioner's next of kin.

Edinburgh police are appealing for help in tracing the next of kin of a pensioner who was found dead a month ago.

Alex Fulton, 81, was discovered by officers at a property on Canon Street on Thursday, June 2, in the Canonmills area of the city.

“I would ask if anyone has any information that could assist us in tracing any potential next of kin should call 101 quoting incident number 0961 of June 2, 2022”.
