Headless body found

DETECTIVES were yesterday searching for parts of a woman's body after a torso was found in a holdall. The woman's legs, which had been chopped up, were found nearby in a plastic bag. The head and arms were still missing.

The discovery was made on Wednesday in Oldham. Greater Manchester Police said it was so far impossible to establish the woman's identity. A spokeswoman refused to confirm reports that detectives were examining a possible link between the discovery of the body and the disappearance on Sunday of local woman Leanne Singleton, 18.
