Trinidad and Tobago politician Marlene Coudray, the mayor of San Fernado, yesterday viewed the burnt remains of a body believed to be that of her missing daughter, 39-year-old schoolteacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves, a Gleaner source has revealed.

"That is Michelle," Coudray reportedly said after viewing the dental braces, bracelet and the burnt-out skeletal remains.

However, when contacted last night for confirmation, acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Devon Watkiss was not prepared to say much on the progress of the investigations.

"There are some development that we are not at liberty to disclose without the authority of the family, so I would prefer not to comment at this moment," he said.

Additionally, Watkiss said a number of persons are being interviewed in relation to the matter. He refused to state whether the police were looking to lay charges against anyone, including the taxi operator in custody.

"Among those are persons who have been established as associates or could have had an opportunity to be around her. To the extent that she used a taxi man, he would be one of those who fall in that category."

In the meantime, Mayor Coudray yesterday visited Cornwall College in St James where her daughter was employed as a Spanish teacher. She also visited the rented house in the Cornwall Courts area where her daughter resided.
