Gemma McCluskie, A 35-year old man, understood to her brother, Tony McCluskie, has been arrested. Miss McCluskie, 29, who played Kerry Skinner in the television soap opera, has been missing for a week.
Mr McCluskie’s Facebook profile picture was last night set to a ‘missing’ poster of his sister with the words: “Has anyone seen or heard from Gemma McCluskie. She has been missing since Thursday 1st March. Someone must know something. The smallest detail could be important.”
It urged those with information to contact him or his brother Danny, 33.
The limbless female body was discovered shortly before 3pm on Tuesday afternoon after police were called to Regent’s Canal near Broadway Market, east London.
The body was recovered by divers from the Metropolitan Police’s Marine Support Unit, who made further searches of the canal. Flowers were laid at the scene.
A murder investigation has been launched by the Homicide and Serious Crime Command. A post-mortem was due to take place yesterday.
Mr McCluskie had earlier told reporters that his sister’s disappearance was “completely” out of character and she had never been missing before.
