Missing oil executive Carole Waugh was stabbed before her body was dumped, said police.
The 50-year-old’s body was found in a lock-up garage in Lime Court, south west London.
Fears grew for her safety after a fraudster tried to sell her expensive flat in central London.
Police are treating her death murder inquiry. A 47-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap, conspiracy to defraud and murder.
He is in custody at a south London police station today and police have until this evening to hold him.
Suspicious financial transactions running to thousands of pounds have also been made using Miss Waugh’s identity since she vanished, and her Cartier jewellery is missing.
Scotland Yard has appealed for information about the blue Volkswagen Golf where Miss Waugh was found, which has the registration number W466 NHL.
Detective Chief Inspector John McFarlane said: “We need to hear from anyone with information on the car, particularly since April this year.
“Anyone who can assist us on where it has been since then, or can advise on anyone with a connection to it, should come forward.”
Miss Waugh, who owned a flat in Harrowby Street, Marylebone, was reported missing by her family on May 7. They last saw her at a family party in mid-April.
