Two arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after four people found dead at Oldham mill | The Sun

TWO people have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after the remains of four people were discovered at a mill in Oldham.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police's Major Incident Team carried out warrants this morning and detained two suspects.

They have been arrested for manslaughter, as well as on suspicion of drugs and organised crime offences.

Both suspects remain in police custody to be quizzed by detectives.

It comes after the remains of four separate victims were found at the scene, following a devastating blaze at the mill in May.

Partial human remains have been identified, through fingerprint analysis, as belonging to Uoc Van Nguyen from northern Vietnam.

The 31-year-old's remains were discovered on July 28 – five days after a first set of human remains were discovered by demolition workers at the Bismarck House Mill.

Uoc Van Nguyen was reported missing to police on Thursday, July 21, along with three other Vietnamese nationals – Cuong Van Chu, 39, Duong Van Nguyen, 29, and 21-year-old Nam Thanh Le.

Police believe they may have also been inside the mill at the time of the fire.

At the time of the fire, crews believed nobody was inside the mill.
