The Trail Went Cold – Episode 74 – John Iverson

January 4, 1991. Lake Havasu City, Arizona. 42-year old audio designer John Iverson disappears from his home after a meeting with a machinist named Jack Weber. According to Iverson’s spouse, Kathy Munro, Weber had robbed her at gunpoint before kidnapping Iverson. After being a wanted fugitive for three months, Weber turns himself in, but there is no sign of Iverson. Weber claims Munro’s story isn’t true and that Iverson left with him voluntarily before staging his own disappearance and framing him for kidnapping. Since there is no evidence of foul play, the charges against Weber are dropped, but Iverson is never found. Did Jack Weber kidnap and murder John Iverson? Or was his disappearance actually an elaborate set-up? We explore both scenarios on this week’s episode of “The Trail Went Cold”, which chronicles what might be the oddest missing persons case we’ve ever covered.
