Believed dead after boat accident, businessman now in jail

01:00 PM CST on Saturday, January 10, 2004


Doug Miller / 11 News



He was believed to be dead, but a man who’s been missing for months after his boat crashed off Kemah is very much alive and is now in jail in Weatherford, Texas.

Flamboyant League City businessman Mike Nixon, a hard-partying regular at Clear Lake nightclubs, had a very hard Friday night.

He spent the evening under interrogation after he was arrested at a home in Weatherford.

FBI agents were looking for Mike Nixon, but they weren’t alone. So were a lot of his creditors, entangled in a multi-million dollar mystery.

The mystery started on the waters of the Houston Ship Channel with an accident that raised a lot of questions.

Mike Nixon’s boat crashed into a barge last August.

Afterwards, there wasn’t much left of the boat and there was no trace of Nixon.

Nixon had just been sued for allegedly reneging on a $4 million line of credit and sources say he might have taken out two personal loans for $500,000 each. Several creditors required life insurance as a condition of doing business, at least five million. All told, depending on whom you talk to, $10 to $12 million may have been on the line when Nixon disappeared.

Friday, more than four months after that boat accident, the law caught up with Mike Nixon.

Houston private investigator, Clark Dickenscheidt, got the credit for running down the leads that led to Nixon’s arrest. He told the Galveston Daily News that a number of banks have provided the FBI with extensive documentation indicating Nixon took out millions of dollars in loans using cranes from his business as collateral. And Friday night, law enforcement officials in Parker County said they’ve heard the case may involve as much as $40 million.


Details on this story are brought to you through our partnership with the Galveston County Daily News.

Here is more from another news site:

Man who disappeared after boat wreck found in N. Texas
ABC13 Eyewitness News
(1/10/04 - GALVESTON) — A man who disappeared after a boat accident in Galveston Bay four and a half months ago has reappeared in north Texas.

We first told you about this story back in August. Investigators thought Larry Nixon was on a boat that was involved in a serious crash in Galveston Bay. Police could not find the League City resident. That is, until he turned up in Parker County, which is in north Texas. But the story doesn't end there.

Nixon is accused of fraud, tricking people out of between four and 20 million dollars, reportedly in a bogus crane sales operation.

Nixon disappeared August 27 of last year when his 40-foot speedboat -- by the way, named "The Living Extra Fast" -- hit a barge near Redfish Island in Galveston Bay. Crews searched the water for more than a day, but never found Nixon's body. Rumors that he had faked his death began almost as quickly as he disappeared.

Next door neighbor Mike Chapman says Nixon is a private man who lived an extravagant life, complete with expensive cars, large boats, girls and partying. There were reports that Nixon defaulted on a four million dollar loan just before his disappearance.

"Obviously he was doing something he wasn't supposed to be doing," said Chapman.

A private investigator hired by one of Nixon's life insurance companies says he had a total of about $20 million in life insurance at the time he disappeared in the Galveston Bay. The PI also says he never really believed Nixon was dead. In fact, he thought Nixon had fled the country.

Investigator Clark Dickenscheidt says "We had what was the makings of a TV movie and he ruined the ending. Not too smart."

Nixon was also found in possession of some kind of illegal steroids. Investigators are also looking for whoever helped him after he crashed his boat, the person who helped him get away and disappear.

The FBI is conducting its own investigation. No charges related to Nixon's disappearance have yet been filed. For now, he remains in custody in north Texas.

Houston-area man who disappeared arrested
By PEGGY O'HARE
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle
A Clear Lake-area businessman who disappeared in a boating accident after he defaulted on a $4 million loan was arrested Friday in a rural area west of Fort Worth, authorities said.

Larry Michael Nixon, 54, who vanished when his speed boat collided with a barge in the Houston Ship Channel in August, was found at a guest house at a gated estate eight to 10 miles west of Weatherford in Parker County. He was arrested on a warrant issued in West Virginia, charging him with felony fraud, said Lowell Moss, spokesman for the Parker County Sheriff's Office.

Details on what prompted that charge were not available. But days after the Aug. 27 boating accident, Minnwest Bank Central of Montevideo, Minn., filed suit against Nixon and his company, Delta Crane, among others.

The suit alleged Nixon entered into an agreement Feb. 25 providing him with a $4 million line of credit.

The bank gave Nixon a notice of default on Aug. 5 and made a demand for payment six days after his boat, "Living Extra Fast," collided with the barge. The U.S. Coast Guard helped search for his body, but that effort was later called off.

Nixon has been described in published reports as flamboyant, with a taste for an extravagant lifestyle. But he seemed nothing like that when he was arrested Friday, Parker County Sheriff's officials said.

"He's pretty docile. He looks like an old country boy," Moss said today.

Nixon showed no surprise when sheriff's deputies showed up at his door and he surrendered without a fight, Moss said. He even gave up his real name, Moss said.

Acting on a tip from the FBI office in Dallas and following up on surveillance, Parker County sheriff's deputies went to the gated property situated on several acres in the 9000 block of Ellis Road, just off Interstate 20, around 3 p.m. Friday.

At the time, Nixon was alone in the guest house where he had been living. Nixon had been allowed to stay at the guest house, but it was undetermined if the owners knew his real identity, Moss said.

Because deputies found significant amounts of what they believe are steroids in Nixon's possession, he has been charged with possession of a controlled substance greater than 200 grams, Moss said. The substances were found in the guest house where he had been living, Moss said.

Deputies also discovered Nixon allegedly had obtained birth certificates and identification with a false name over the Internet, and also obtained credit and opened a bank account with that fraudulent identity, Moss said. As a result, an additional charge of possession of fraudulent government documents may be filed against him Monday, Moss said.

Parker County Sheriff's officials would not disclose that false name Saturday.

Nixon is accused of purchasing a 2003 or 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe on credit obtained under the false name, Moss said.
