Police investigating the murder of Catford teacher Sabina Nessa have released the full CCTV clip of a man they want to speak to.
Ms Nessa, 28, was walking to meet a friend at a pub near her home on Astell Road just before 8.30pm last Friday, but never arrived.
Her body was found close to the OneSpace community centre within the park at around 5.30pm the following day.
A 38-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the murder yesterday afternoon.
It is the second arrest that has been made in relation to Ms Nessa’s murder.
A man in his 40s was arrested on suspicion of murder and released under investigation, police said previously.
Separately, a new CCTV clip has been released today that shows images of a man that police want to speak to.
Police have urged anyone who recognises the man and vehicle to contact them immediately.
An image of a silver vehicle, believed to be accessible to the man, have also been released.
A post-mortem examination to find out Ms Nessa’s cause of death, carried out on Monday, was inconclusive.
A candlelight vigil is planned for tonight, organised by the campaign group Reclaim These Streets, to pay tribute to Ms Nessa.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “Our team have been working tirelessly to find the person responsible for Sabina’s murder and this has included an extensive trawl of CCTV, work which remains ongoing.
“We would ask anyone – especially those in Kidbrooke and the wider area of Lewisham and Greenwich – to take a careful look at these images to check whether you know who this man is or have seen him over recent days.
“Any information as to his identity or whereabouts could be vital for our investigation so we are asking you to share this image far and wide to ensure as many people as possible see it.”
Detective Inspector Joe Garrity said: “Our investigation is making good progress and specialist officers remain at the crime scene carrying out intensive searches and enquiries.
“We are incredibly grateful for all of those who have so far come forward and spoken to us but we believe there are still others out there who may have information that could help.
“If you think you saw Sabina or any suspicious behaviour in or around the park on Friday evening please speak to us.
“Sabina’s journey should have taken just over five minutes but she never made it to her destination.
“We know the community are rightly shocked by this murder – as are we – and we are using every resource available to us to find the individual responsible.”
Anyone with information should call the incident room on 0208 721 4266 or Crimestoppers completely anonymously on 0800 555 111.
