Mystery of missing Kildare man
Monday, 11 February 2002
The Irish Examiner reported the story of John Rowan (34), originally from Monasterevin, Co. Kildare, who left his wife Caroline and their two children at the family home in Jacksonville, Florida, on February 23 last year and hasn’t been seen since. His van was found near Orlando airport a month later but the family believe that he has been murdered. Mr Rowan had his own construction business and what baffles the family is that ten months before he disappeared he removed his wife and children as beneficiaries of a $3m life insurance policy and inserted the names of his two former business partners, Ray and Mike Itani. The Itanis refuse to discuss the matter with the police.
