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.

Both men have since been given police bail to return for further questioning in April, Scotland Yard confirmed today (Wednesday).

But police are still seeking witnesses on the sixth anniversary of Margaret’s brutal murder. A spokesman said: “We are still appealing to anyone who was in Victoria Park on that morning and who saw anything suspicious to come forward.”

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the homicide incident room on 020-8345 1585, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
