I recall a TV murder mystery(maybe CSI) in which the body was disposed of by dissolving in a barrel of caustic soda aka lye aka sodium hydroxide
Sounds like the "cleaning" process described in the series, "Nikita"

I don't know about Nikita but the process is used in industry. Caustic is a very good cleaner and is cheap so it used as a degreaser. It will dissolve aluminum so it is used to produce etched parts for the aircraft industry.
Years ago I worked for a company that did metal cleaning and it operated a hot caustic tank. Back then(1970s), those caustic beads cost 19 cents/pound
