A man, the police describe as a person of interest, is now in custody as investigations intensify into the disappearance of Trinidad & Tobago school teacher, Michelle Coudray-Greaves, who is feared dead.
It is believed that a burnt body, which was found in a canefield in Montego Bay on Monday, is that of Coudray-Greaves, 39.
She is the daughter of Marlene Coudray, the Mayor of San Fernando in Trinidad.
The mayor was expected to arrive in Jamaica today but based on information provided by a police source, the trip has been postponed until tomorrow.
Coudray-Greaves, who resided in a rented property in Cornwall Courts, Montego Bay, recently completed a period of temporary employment as teacher of Spanish at Cornwall College and was in negotiation with the school to fill another vacancy in September.
“She went back to T&T over the Easter holidays and returned to the island on Wednesday,” her landlady told The Gleaner yesterday.
“She came to see me on Thursday and paid up her outstanding bills.”
Initially, it was believed that the body, believed to be that of the missing woman, was deliberately burnt.
However, workers on the property said it was burnt inadvertently while they were preparing the field to reap the cane.
The missing woman, who is the mother of three children, is married to a Jamaican.
However, they are no longer in a relationship.
