On the morning of February 3, 2003, Margaret Muller, a 27-year-old artist from Wallis Road in East London, was tragically murdered while jogging in Victoria Park. Despite a thorough investigation and multiple reviews, her killer remains at large 20 years later. The Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Casework Team is re-appealing for any witnesses or information that may lead to a breakthrough in the case.
Detective Chief Inspector Amanda Greig of the Specialist Casework Team emphasized that time is not a barrier to justice, and urged anyone with information to come forward. Margaret’s family has been waiting for two decades for closure and justice, and it’s time for anyone who can help to do the right thing.
Police are seeking information from anyone who was in the park on the morning of the murder, as well as anyone who may have seen anything suspicious around the Gascoyne Estate. The investigation has suggested that Margaret may have been the victim of a failed robbery attempt. Officers are particularly interested in tracing anyone who may have seen a person entering the park through the Queen’s Gate entrance at around 7:10 am or sprinting back through the entrance along Gascoyne Road after 8:30 am.
If you have any information, please contact the Specialist Casework Team at 0208 785 8267 or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111. Margaret’s murder has left a lasting impact on the community, and it’s time to bring her killer to justice.
