    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.
