Thirty-year-old Annie Börjesson's body was found on a Scottish beach on a cold December morning – the police deemed it a case of tragic suicide, but her family think something more sinister was at play.

Annie Börjesson arrived to Scotland from Sweden in 2004 and had been living happily in Edinburgh for over a year.

She reportedly loved Scotland but found it difficult to hold residency in the country so returned to Sweden in August of 2005, coming back again just 2 months later.

She was also a keen walker, and would often spend nights exploring the rich culture of Edinburgh on foot – it was one of these nights that she met Martin Leslie.

Martin Leslie was born in New Zealand and was an international rugby player who had capped 37 times for Scotland – only, this man wasn't the real Martin Leslie.

The imposter was reportedly very 'full-on' with Annie and made her feel 'uneasy'.

It was just before her death that Annie ran into 'Martin' again when he turned up at her local swimming pool.

Annie reportedly found it strange that she had never seen him there before, given that everyone knew her love for rugby and 'muscular men'.

Despite having only met him twice, Annie alerted her family that “she regarded him as a sexual predator and she was planning to cut off all contact with him.”

People in Annie's life began to get extremely worried in the days leading up to her death, as they believed their daughter's mental health was in decline.

On December 1, Guje Börjesson, Annie’s mother, made a call to her phone where, after being told the family was worried about her, Annie said “you have to respect this, but I have to take care of myself.”

The Scottish police later claimed that there was no record of this call and that Annie’s phone had received no calls in the three days before her death.

CCTV picked up Annie on December 3 at the airport ready for a planned trip home, police say that she had told her hairdresser that she would be back on Monday, December 5.

Weirdly, she can be seen exiting after only spending four minutes and 41 seconds at Prestwick Airport – but other video footage shows Annie making distances in times that re-enactors claim could not possibly replicate without running.

This has led conspirators to suggest that the footage had been altered with.

Under half an hour later at 4:30pm, two men were walking at Prestwick beach and spotted an 'unnerving' figure standing at the edge of the water.

The person was reportedly standing motionless and staring out to sea – causing the two men to feel worried they were going to take their own life.

Continuing their walk, they turned around and headed back the way they came and saw that the individual was still there and staring out to sea.

The police reportedly never asked the two men if the figure fitted Annie's description, but solicitor-general Frank Mulholland told the Swedish Embassy that "a witness statement indicated that someone fitting [Annie's] description was seen standing at the water's edge."

8.30am the next morning Annie's body was found at the water's edge by a dog walker with her belongings were still with her.

This was 'unusual' when thinking about the currents and it led some people to believe that her body could have been placed there.

Investigations also found an 'unknown DNA' on her hands.

Before any sort of autopsy had been performed on Annie, it was announced by the press that there were "no suspicious circumstances" in her death.

The police and authorities were so convinced it was a suicide that no door-to-door enquires occurred, no forensic team was sent and no samples were taken.

An initial autopsy report showed small bruises to her temple and scratches to the arms, police were reportedly 'satisfied' these injuries had been caused by items in the water.

But when the body returned to Sweden, the undertaker found extensive bruising on both arms and behind the ear that were not previously mentioned.

In the days following her death her mother Guje Börjesson tried to log into her Hotmail account and worryingly found it had been wiped.

At the same time, Annie's best friend Maria was attempting to obtain details of her phone calls with Annie, but found they didn't exist.

There wasn't a single record of a call between Maria and Annie for months before.

Then Maria started to receive sinister silent phone calls and had trouble logging into her own email accounts.

While this was going on, Maria decided to dug deeper and made a gut-wrenching discovery, the existence of a US journalist by the name of Kristina Borjesson – Annie's full name was Annie Kristina Börjesson.

Maria discovered that Kristina was a critic of US foreign policy, it is believed she had been looking into the CIA's 'rendition program' that had ran through Prestwick airport.

This has led people to believe that Annie could have been wrongly identified as Kristina Borjesson and attracted attention from high-up security services, such as MI5 – which could explain the wiped emails, phone calls and swift exit from the airport.

Since her death, the Swedish government has refused all requests to make the unredacted case files public, claiming they are classified and that it may harm "national interests" to release information.

Annie's mother has campaigned for an official inquest into her daughter's untimely death.

A 3,000 signature petition was presented to Scottish Parliament in 2013 and Scottish actor Ken Stott joined the calls for action – but so far all appeals have been denied.

Guje Börjesson, Annie’s mother said: “This is a beautiful country with lovely and caring people. Please do not leave them and our family with all these unanswered questions.

"All we want is a [Fatal Accident Inquiry] into Annie’s mysterious death. Please let us know why Annie had to die in the country she loved.”
