Thames headless body was student
The bag was approximately 3ft (0.91m) wide and 2ft (0.61m) deep
The headless body of a woman found floating in a bag in the River Thames was a Chinese student.
Xing Xing Xie, 23, had been living in the UK for the past five years in Lambeth, south London, police said.
Passers-by raised the alarm after spotting the bag floating at the South Dock Marina in Rotherhithe, south-east London on 19 April.
A man living locally was arrested by detectives and has been bailed to return to a police station in May.
Inside the bag, officers found the clothed body of a woman with her head and hands missing.
The bag was approximately 3ft (0.91m) wide and 2ft (0.61m) deep and had red, white and blue checks, resembling a tartan pattern.
A post-mortem examination concluded the cause of death as neck injuries caused by a sharp instrument.
An inquest was opened and adjourned at Southwark Coroner's Court.
