Richard III story could inspire Perth to find its own royal remains

 

A search for the regal victim of a brutal 600-year-old murder could thrust Perth into the international spotlight.

The recent discovery of the remains of Richard III under a Leicester car park captured the imagination of people around the world.

Now, efforts to solve the Fair City’s own royal murder mystery are being championed by history enthusiast and MSP Murdo Fraser.

History records that James I was savagely killed in Perth on February 21 1437 as he hid from assassins, but the exact site of his grave has been lost in the mists of time.
