Killer of missing biker jailed for 10 years
A man who battered a biker to death more than 10 years ago then buried his body in a field has been jailed.
Thomas Pryde, 38, from Perthshire, said he attacked 46-year-old biker Adam Alexander in 1999 with a metal pole after they had a row.
Despite repeated searches by police, Mr Alexander’s body has never been found.
At the High Court in Edinburgh, Judge Lord Bracadale described the killing as a “most disturbing crime” and jailed Pryde for 10 years.
