DETECTIVES who brought Nat Fraser to justice have yet to decide when they will visit him in prison.
After his conviction for the murder of his wife last week at the High Court in Edinburgh and 25 year jail term, officers said they planned to question Fraser in prison to try and get him to reveal where he disposed of the body.
Deputy senior investigating officer Chief Inspector Alan Smith said this week: "At this stage we are going to reflect on the situation – it has been a lot to take in and consider.
"The next aspect to look at is when and how we approach Nat Fraser and that decision has not been made yet,'' he added.
Meanwhile, Fraser's legal team confirmed this week that an appeal had been lodged against both his conviction and sentence.
The appeal process can take anything from six months to a year.
A spokeswoman for Beltrami and Co of Glasgow confirmed. that national newspaper reports which claimed Fraser was on a hunger strike at Saughton Prison in Edinburgh were untrue.
