Porn star found dismembered in lake

A TV appeal has led to the discovery of a missing porn star found dismembered in a suitcase left in an Italian lake.

Federica Giacomini was found in Lake Garda five months after she was originally reported missing, The Sun reported.

Her body was found wrapped in plastic when they were recovered by police divers at the popular holiday spot in northern Italy.

The 43-year-old's phone had not been used and no money had been withdrawn from her bank accounts since her disappearance.

“Following a tip-off that someone had been seen dumping a large object in the lake a search of the area was carried out and the trunk recovered,” a police spokesman said.

“Inside there were several black plastic bags, wrapped with Sellotape and containing human body parts — sadly we believe it to be the body of Federica and an autopsy is being carried out.”

Giacomini, who had starred in a number of adult films, retired from the industry in 2008.

Pollice have reportedly questioning her former partner Franco Mossoni several times in recent months.

The 55-year-old had been detained in a secure psychiatric unit after he dressed as Rambo and waved a gun in a Vicenza hospital.

Forensic analysis was being performed on Mossoni's car after the passenger seat was replaced with a deck chair.

Clubs and knives were also found by police in his home along with several documents belonging to Giacomini.
