A 58-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the 1984 killing of Anthony Littler in East Finchley.
Littler was found with head injuries in an alleyway known as The Causeway, near East Finchley tube station in north London at 12.15am on 1 May 1984. Littler, an executive officer at Customs and Excise, was single and lived a short distance from the station.
Earlier this week, the Metropolitan police launched an appeal for information surrounding his death. On Sunday, a man was arrested on suspicion of murder. He has been bailed until January pending further inquiries.
DCI Neil John, who is leading the investigation, said: “This arrest comes just four days after our latest appeal, and I would like to thank everyone who has already come forward with information. However, we still need to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the events leading up to Anthony’s murder.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 020 8358 0100 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
