    Circumstances of Disappearance
    In the months before his disappearance, McArthur had seemed troubled. At the time he was married and had two children. He worked as a supervisor at the Harrington & Richardson firearms company in Gardner

    Years of investigation has revealed that McArthur was holding some drugs for someone, which he gave to a friend, who never gave them back. As the persn wanted those drugs, McArthur was getting nervous because he didn’t have them.
    The day of his disappearance, McArthur's daughter answered a phone call from someone, whose name she has since forgotten. She took a message. When her father got home, she told him the caller said to go to the Italian Kitchen on Shrewsbury Street. He went, as directed, and never came back.

    The police learned that three men had escorted McArthur out of the restaurant. Two weeks later, his Thunderbird was found on the outskirts of Boston’s Combat Zone with two weeks worth of parking tickets at the windshield. His leather jacket and cigarettes were inside.

    The prime suspect in the disappearance is still alive, but others who were likely involved have died.
    Evidence indicated that McArthur was shot and his body was most likely dumped in water. Police searched lakes and ponds in the area after the disappearance.
    McArthur has been declared legally dead.

    And although 25 years have passed, she still cries when she talks about the man she loved. More than anything, she wants his body returned to her for burial. She isn’t so much worried about punishing those responsible.
    Touching article about how the families of murder victims who are never found are impacted. Prayers.

    Charles has been missing for almost 28 years. Come home soon.

    McArthur family desperate for answers

    WORCESTER — There was a man's voice on the telephone. He wanted Charles “Bill” H. McArthur Jr. to go to the Italian Kitchen on Shrewsbury Street.

    Mr. McArthur obliged. He was never seen again.

    The circumstances surrounding the 39-year-old's disappearance include drugs, money and — most likely — murder.
