The second man arrested in connection with the death of Watton teenager Johanna Young in 1992 has been bailed.

A man in his 40s from the Watton area was arrested on Thursday morning in connection with the schoolgirl’s death.

Police have bailed him until June.

A man his 30s from the Thetford area was arrested around 5am and was bailed this evening, also until early June, as inquiries continue.

14-year-old Johanna was found in a water-filled pit near the edge of Wayland Wood near Watton on Boxing Day 1992.

In December her parents issued a heartfelt plea to help detectives in their search for new leads.

Johanna left her home in Merton Road in the town on December 23 at 7.30pm but did not return home that night.

They assumed she had stayed at her boyfriend’s because of the foggy and cold weather.

But when Johanna failed to turn up for her paper round at 7am her parents Robert and Carol reported their daughter missing.

When Johanna’s body was found in undergrowth near Griston Road, she was covered in scratches and was partially clothed.

A post-mortem examination showed she had died from drowning and a fractured skull.

Anyone who has any information for the police should call 101.
