The individual was not someone who had previously been arrested as part of the inquiry.

On Wednesday, December 6, the same man was re-arrested on suspicion of murder and taken into police custody for questioning, before being released under investigation pending further inquiries.

Victoria had left home on the evening of Saturday, September 18, 1999 to go for a night out with a friend at the Bandbox nightclub in Bent Hill, Felixstowe, where they remained until around 1am on the morning of Sunday, September 19.

They then went to get some food at the Bodrum Grill in Undercliff Road West, before beginning the walk back to Trimley St Mary.

They parted at around 2.20am near to the junction of High Road and Faulkeners Way, with Victoria was just yards away from her home.

When Victoria’s parents woke-up that morning and discovered that she had not returned home, the police were called and a missing person inquiry commenced.

Five days later, on Friday, September 24, Victoria’s naked body was found in a ditch beside a field by a dog walker in Creeting Lane, Creeting St Peter, about 25 miles away from where she was last seen.

Police ask anyone with information about Victoria’s death, to contact the Major Investigation Team, by the online portal.
