Police in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang have arrested a Chinese suspect shortly after a decapitated body was found inside a suitcase left under a local bridge.

A source close to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper confirmed on Friday afternoon that the municipal Department of Police had apprehended a Chinese national as part of their investigation into the case.

According to preliminary information, local residents were fishing under the Tran Thi Ly Bridge on the morning of the same day when they discovered a red suitcase floating on the Han River.

After pulling it ashore, the residents found a decapitated body of a woman with both legs missing below the knees.

They later discovered the victim’s missing head and limbs under a bench situated across the river.

The incident was immediately reported to police officers, who examined the scene of the incident as well as performed an autopsy.

The investigation is now under the direct supervision of Colonel Tran Muu, deputy director of the Da Nang Police Department.

In a provided photo of the victim's Vietnamese visa, the woman is identified as Bao Danping, a Chinese national born in 1990.

Her visa was issued in Kunming, the capital city of Yunnan Province in southwest China, in November 2019 and is valid through March 4, 2020.
