A Fraserburgh building in which two men died under suspicious circumstances ten years ago has went back up for sale.

Derek “Decky” Youngson, 19, and Derek Roy, 47, died on Hogmanay 2006 when a fire erupted at their top floor flat at 15 & 17 Kirk Brae, Fraserburgh.

The possible murder site is now on the market for £420,000 described as a “great investment opportunity” by Martin & Co of Aberdeen.

The case into the two men’s deaths was reopened by Grampian Police in 2009.

Speaking at the time Det Supt Malcolm Stewart said: “We owe it to the families of the men who died to ensure that no stone is left unturned and, given that it is now three years since the last review was carried out, it is only right and proper that we take a fresh look at these cases.”

He also stated that he believed that the fire was started under suspicious circumstances.

Police have described the investigation into the fatal fire as “open”.
