A FIFTH man has been arrested on suspicion of St Albans man Murray Thompson’s murder.
A FIFTH man has been arrested on suspicion of a St Albans man’s murder.
Murray Thompson, 34, of St Peter’s Street, has not been seen since April 20 and investigations have led detectives to believe he is no longer alive.
The 30-year-old man from Rickmansworth was arrested yesterday (Tuesday) and was released on police bail.
Four other men – a 45-year-old man, a 21-year-old man and a 23-year-old man from Watford, along with a 56-year-old man from Chiswell Green – have already been arrested on suspicion of the same charge and are due to answer bail at the end of this month.
Murray’s Gil-Lec work van was seen in the area of St Albans Road/Leavesden Road in Watford around the time he went missing, and was later located in Robin Hood Drive in Bushey on May 4. A flat in St Albans Road in Watford was discovered as having been previously visited by Murray and forensic investigations have taken place there.
Last month Murray’s parents offered a reward of up to �5,000 from their savings for information about what has happened to him and they made a moving video appeal which can be seen on the Herts Police YouTube page at www.youtube.com/hertspolice
