The year-old mystery over the final resting place of a clan chief who was executed for his role in the Jacobite Uprising has taken a new twist - in London. Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat - also known as the Old Fox - was beheaded in April with a long-held theory that supporters managed to smuggle his remains out of the UK capital and take them back to the Highlands. Last year, pieces of skeleton were exhumed from an unmarked coffin in the family crypt at Wardlaw Mausoleum at Kirkhill, near Inverness, to establish once and for all whether the Old Fox came home. But the bones turned out to be those of a headless young woman - with answers over the final fate of the clan chief as elusive as ever. The search for the Old Fox has now moved to the chapel at the Tower of London where official records show that Lord Lovat was buried. But now it has emerged the remains have since been moved - and are now likely held in one of two caskets that are concealed behind a thick stone wall and contain hundreds of random bones.
