Fourth arrest made following Bismark House Mill deaths

A fourth man has been arrested as police continue to investigate the deaths of four Vietnamese nationals at an Oldham mill.

The 36-year-old man was arrested this morning on suspicion of manslaughter, cultivation of cannabis and participating in the activities of an organised crime group.

He remains in police custody for questioning.

The remains of Uoc Van Nguyen, Cuong Van Chu, Duong Van Nguyen and Nam Thanh Lee were recovered during a six-month search of Bismark House Mill on Bower Street in Oldham, which had been subject to a fire last May.

The search was initiated after demolition workers discovered human remains in July last year.

Greater Manchester Police and His Majesty’s Coroner are continuing to work with partner agencies to complete the formal identification process and organise repatriation.

Anyone with information should contact Greater Manchester Police via 101. In an emergency, always dial 999.

Anyone who would like to remain anonymous can share information via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
