A corpse was pulled out of the River Thames by COPS, who are investigating a murder.
On April 30, 24-year-old Suma Begum was reported missing from east London’s Tower Hamlets.
On May 4, her husband Aminan Rahman was accused of killing her, and he is now being held without bail.
Police think that the 45-year-old killed his wife in their Docklands home before dumping her corpse in the River Lea.
Although Ms. Begum’s family has been informed, according to the police, official identification of the corpse has not yet been done.
In due course, a post-mortem investigation will be conducted.
Tuesday saw Rahman’s court appearance.
Prosecutor Tom Broomfield said: “It is alleged that he either killed or incapacitated Ms Begum, placed her or her body in a suitcase which he then dumped into the River Lea, part of the River Thames.
“The river has been searched but there is no sign of that suitcase.
“Because of the tidal nature of the Thames, it is not thought the suitcase of Ms Begum will be found until effectively the suitcase appears on the river bank.”
