A RETIRED policeman who was the last known person to see SNP activist Willie McRae alive has received a death threat.
Donald Morrison believes the chilling anonymous letter was linked to his campaign to discover the truth about the lawyer’s mysterious demise in 1985.
After filing a complaint with the police, the 74-year-old then began to suspect that he was being followed and also believes his phone and email have been hacked.

I have reported two incidents to the police but there has been no interest to follow them up
Mr Morrison has always maintained that he spoke with the 62-year-old in Glasgow city centre on April 5, 1985, shortly before he left for the Highlands, and noticed he was being followed by two cars.
The former Strathclyde PC said: “I have reported two incidents to the police but there has been no interest to follow them up.

not see any obvious damage or trackers or such like.
“I have also received a threatening letter which stated, ‘Let’s hope the next victim of a police shooting is you’. The first three words were handwritten, the rest stencilled in. It was quite unnerving.
“I also believe my phone and computer have been hacked and it is all down to the fact I will not give up until I have answers for Willie McRae. I feel I owe him the truth since no one else seems to care.”
