UK quiz show champion arrested on suspicion of murder

22 September 2016, 19:03

London — A quiz-show champion who appeared on the long-running BBC show Eggheads has been arrested on suspicion of committing murder in the Netherlands.

London's Metropolitan Police says Joseph Connagh, whose professional name is CJ de Mooi, was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday on a Dutch-issued European Arrest Warrant.

De Mooi, 46, appeared for a decade on Eggheads, which pits a team of quiz champions against a group of challengers.

In a 2015 autobiography, he said he might have killed a man while he was homeless in Amsterdam in 1988. He said he punched a knife-wielding mugger and threw him into a canal.

De Mooi wrote: "I fully suspect I killed him. I've no idea what happened to him."
