Police quiz four over missing money lender John Iveson
Published: 29th Jun 2011 14:20:53
Police have arrested four men in connection with the suspected murder of a money lender who has been missing since 2007.
Officers say they are treating the disappearance of John Iveson, 36, from Nantwich, Cheshire, as a murder even though his body has never been found.
Two were arrested in Wrexham, north Wales, one in Crewe, Cheshire, and another in Audley, Stoke-on-Trent.
Three of the men have been bailed while another is still being quizzed.
Cheshire police said a 39-year-old man arrested in Rossett, near Wrexham, and another, aged 36, from Crewe have been bailed until July 20 on suspicion of murder.
Also on bail is a 63-year-old man who was arrested at an address in Audley, on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
A fourth man, aged 46 and from Nantwich, was arrested in Wrexham on Monday on suspicion of murder.
He is being interviewed by Cheshire Police.
Father-of-five Mr Iveson was last heard of on the night of 30 January 2007 when he rang his brother-in-law and sounded "a little drunk but well".
In 2008, detectives offered a reward of £30,000 in a bid to trace Mr Iveson.
At the time they described Mr Iveson as a man "a number of people may have wished not to see again".
His business dealings in the demolition and construction trade enabled him to lend large amounts of cash to a number of associates, they said.
Officers said he was possibly "as much feared as liked" in some circles and that he could be "violent when angry".
At the time of his disappearance, Mr Iveson, who worked all over the country, particularly in Birmingham and Oldham, was renovating a house in Nantwich. His wife was pregnant with their fifth child.
