Missing woman's partner in 'threat'.


THE boyfriend of missing woman Fiona Pender is being investigated by gardai after allegedly sending a threatening letter to a property firm, it was claimed yesterday.

Gardai in Co Offaly are believed to be preparing a file for the Director of Public Prosecutions on the issue.

The Sunday Tribune reported a complaint was made that John Thompson claimed he was a dangerous man who had committed crimes in the past.

He allegedly sent the letter to a Dublin firm last year after a dispute arose over property Thompson was to purchase.

He allegedly wrote that if the company wanted to learn more about his past then they should contact gardai in Tullamore.

The company handed the letter to the Garda.

The investigation into Fiona Pender's disappearance in August 1996 is still open.

Thompson was questioned in connection with her disappearance but was never charged with any crime.

Fiona Pender, then 25, a part-time model and hairdresser, was seven months pregnant with Thompson's child when she disappeared from her home in Tullamore, Co Offaly, in August 1996.

Her body has never been found but gardai believe she was murdered.

A cross bearing her name was found in a picnic area near the Slieve Bloom Mountains in Co Laois earlier this month.

Nothing has been uncovered by a dig at the site.
