North Wales Police announced on Tuesday morning (June 25) that a 38-year-old man residing in the Bryngwran area, has been arrested on suspicion of the murder and a number of other related offences.

Two other men, a 48-year-old from the Caergeiliog area and a 36-year old from Bryngwran, have been arrested for conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit fraud and a number of related offences.

A 50-year-old woman has also been arrested on suspicion of money laundering and fraud related offences.

Detective Chief Superintendent Wayne Jones has issued a renewed appeal for information from the public.

“This was an unprecedented event which shocked the local community. Early this morning officers from the Major Incident Team, assisted by additional resources from across North Wales, executed a number of search warrants as part of the investigation into the death of Mr Corrigan, a pensioner and well-respected member of the community.
