The London Metropolitan Police has revealed that a severed human head has been found in Regent’s Canal in east London.
The head was found near Kingsland Road, Hackney, by a member of the public on Sunday afternoon, and up till now, it’s still not been identified by police.
The head was discovered less than a mile from where the decapitated torso of ex-EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie was found less than six months ago in March. The limbless body of Miss McCluskie, 29, was found near Broadway Market.
Miss McCluskie, of Pelter Street, Hackney, played Kerry Skinner in the BBC soap in 2001. Her 35-year-old brother, Tony McCluskie, will stand trial in November charged with her murder.
Speaking on the discovery of the head yesterday, a police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a head was recovered from Regent’s Canal yesterday afternoon. It is still yet to be identified.”
