In September 1999, Victoria Hall was last seen alive in the early hours of the 19th in High Road in Trimley St Mary, near Felixstowe. Her body was discovered more than 20 miles away from where she was last seen in mid Suffolk several days after she went missing. The killer was never brought to justice. Reports from several news outlets including the BBC, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Sun, and The Times have named a man known as the ‘Suffolk Strangler’ as the suspect rearrested on suspicion of Victoria’s murder. This newspaper has been unable to verify these reports, and when questioned, Suffolk police did not confirm or deny the suspect’s identity.
The suspect, known as the ‘Suffolk Strangler’, was previously the landlord of the Ferry Boat pub in King Street, Norwich. He had a history of killing five women in Ipswich over the span of several months in late 2006, but he was never charged in connection with Victoria’s death. Suffolk police confirmed that a man arrested in connection with the probe in July 2021 had been rearrested on suspicion of murder in September of the same year. The suspect was taken into custody. The Telegraph reported that it was the ‘Suffolk Strangler’ who was being questioned over Victoria’s death, but there has been no official confirmation from Suffolk police regarding the suspect’s identity.

The rearrest of a suspect in July 2021 brought new hope to the investigation, with the man being rearrested on suspicion of murder in September 2021. However, there has been no official confirmation and a sense of uncertainty still hangs over the case.
