The remains of Mexican actress Carmen Yarira Esparza Noriega have been found in a residential drinking water tank almost a year after she went missing.

Esparza Noriega, 27, was last seen leaving a gym in Mexico City last February (14), according to Fox News Latino.

He body was discovered last month (Dec14) during a health investigation after residents of the Grand Chapuletepec apartment complex, where Esparza Noriega lived, complained about a bad taste in their drinking water.

City health officials investigated the building's water tank and discovered her decomposing body.

Relatives were able to identify her body by her hip and breast implants, the local coroner tells Fox News Latino.

According to multiple reports, her ex-boyfriend, who paid her rent in the lavish apartment, has been named a main suspect after she split from him to date another man.
