    A body in a suitcase was discovered in the Grand Union canal in West London, Sunday. No details of identity or gender have been released yet, but Metropolitan police say a homicide investigation has been launched.

    Strangely, police also said the death is being 'treated as suspicious at this early stage'. It seems hard to imagine how this death could turn out to be non-suspicious later. Perhaps it's just badly worded.

    Yes seems to be a fairly public area, unless it floated there from somewhere else.....is that possible ?

    A body found in luggage may be the quintessential English crime.

    You were spot on - police say the case went into the water further along the canal.

    There have been 3 arrests: men aged 30, 34 and 38. Police are confident they know the identity of the victim and have informed her family, but have not identified her yet.

    ETA: They think she has been in the water two weeks.

    I've got a horrible feeling about this case. I think it's going to turn out even more horrific than it is already. :(

    That's the Brits! I love it! Yes, fellow WS Peeps, I don't think s/he merely over-packed...

    One more little Brit-bit: I listen to the BBC World News from time to time, and there is one broadcaster, a male, who always winds up the broadcast by saying, "This is the end of the World News." Chuckle. (my chuckle, not his :D)
    -----------------------------------------

    Hoping we can continue to get news on this one. We're getting it from the get-go as far as investigation is concerned, and that is always exciting and a challenge.

    So they made the arrests yesterday, that was quick, that implies they knew who the dead woman was......doesn't it ? Could it be someone from the area who was recently reported missing ?

    My hunch is an Asian girl who's been killed by her own family :(

    Amazing, zwiebel -- I've had the same feeling -- something creepy or cruel or twisted -- obviously, I can't put the right words to it yet, but it's just something very upsetting. In a suitcase -- in that area of London. Mmmmfff, I don't know what to say, other than I hope I'm just over-reacting. Don't know why.

    Time will tell. SMH.
