A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Margaret Muller who was jogging in East London’s Victoria Park six years ago when she was attacked.

A second man is also being quizzed about the stabbing

Margaret, a 27-year-old American artist living in Wallis Road, Hackney Wick, was stabbed to death during her early-morning jog. She died from multiple stab wounds.

A 36-year-old man was questioned this week about the stabbing on February 3, 2003. A second man, aged 46, has also been helping police, on suspicion of “assisting an offender” in connection with the murder.
