A sex worker was allegedly brutally murdered and dismembered following a heated argument with her lover.

The 40-year-old suspect reportedly strangled the victim to death in his flat on August 12 – in what has been described as a "fit of rage".

According to Times Now, he chopped the body and stuffed it into three suitcases, which were disposed of in the remote area of Mutha Ghat in Pune, India.

He was later arrested after confessing to the murder and took police to the area where he'd left the suitcases of body parts.

An investigation into the murder started after a missing person complaint was registered by a brothel operator the victim used to work at.

The victim’s body was discovered after locals complained to police about the smell coming from the container, and officers found Flanagan’s naked corpse inside when they opened it to investigate.

At present, her cause of death remains unknown. There were no obvious injuries visible on her body and police are awaiting a toxicology report.
