The body of Gemma McCluskie, who appeared in over 30 episodes of BBC soap EastEnders as Kerry Skinner in 2001, is thought to have been discovered in an east London canal.
According to Scotland Yard, the actress has been missing since March 1st and was last seen at her home in Bethnal Green. Yesterday, officers recovered a woman's torso in the Regent's Canal in Hackney, which they believe to be her, although she has yet to be formally identified.
So far, the death has been ruled as "unexplained," but homicide detectives are expected to be called in.
Our heart goes out to all of Gemma's friends, family, and loved ones during this absolutely devastating time, and may whoever is responsible for this disgusting act be found, and dealt with accordingly.
