Gemma McCluskie went missing after a hospital opening on the 1st of March, and her limbless body was found floating in the canal near her home on Tuesday.
A post-mortem examination of the torso proved inconclusive as to the cause of death, police hope that locating the head or limbs may help uncover the cause of death. It is thought that to this point Tony McCluskie of Pelter Street Bethnal Green has not admitted to the murder of his sister, and is due to appear in court on Monday morning.

Gemma McCluskie appeared in Eastenders in 2001 as Kerry Skinner the great niece of original Eastenders character Ethal. Kerry was the best friend of Zoe Slater (Michelle Ryan), but had a tendency of being a bit on the twisted side. She exited the series after accepting a marriage proposal from Robbie (Dean Gaffney) but her methods were not genuine.
