A 68-year-old man is the second person to be arrested on suspicion of the murder of a teenage girl more than 20 years ago.
The body of Lindsay Jo Rimer, 13, was found in the Rochdale Canal in April 1995, five months after she was last seen on November 7 1994 when she went to buy cornflakes from a shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
The arrest of the man, from Bradford, comes after a 63-year-old man was arrested in November on suspicion of Lindsay’s murder.
He remains on police bail while inquiries continue.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Police have arrested a second man on suspicion of the murder of Lindsay Rimer.
“A 68-year-old man was arrested from Bradford this morning on suspicion of the 13-year-old schoolgirl’s murder.”
Lindsay Jo’s body had been weighted down and was found by canal workers five months after she disappeared.
Last year, new forensic leads in the cold case were investigated by West Yorkshire Police.
Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson said at the time that they were waiting for the “golden nugget of information that will finally crack the case”.
Lindsay Jo’s sister Juliet – who was just a baby when she went missing – has spoken publicly about growing up without her sibling.
She said: “When I turned 13, it was like everyone closed ranks around me, in an effort to protect me from the world, as if the same thing might happen.
“A piece of everyone’s soul is missing and I often wonder how our lives would have been if we were not a broken family.
“Not knowing what happened is the worst part. You walk down the street and wonder ‘Was it them? Do you know something?’.
“Getting the answers wouldn’t change the hurt but it would help bring closure to us all.”
