As the probe into the disappearance of Trinidadian teacher Michelle Coudray-Greaves continues, news has come that an autopsy conducted on a body found on Monday in a cane field in St. James has proved inconclusive.
A report in today’s issue of Trinidad’s Newsday newspaper says the autopsy took place yesterday.
It says the missing woman’s mother, San Fernando Mayor Marlene Coudray, viewed the charred remains.
She also gave DNA samples to investigators which she hopes will further assist in the identification of the remains.
In a brief interview with the newspaper, Mrs. Coudray said she was hoping to bring closure to the matter but the wait will take a little longer than expected.
Results of the DNA samples are not expected until Wednesday.
In the meantime, Trinidad’s National Security Minister John Sandy says there is no need yet to send investigators to Jamaica to assist in the probe into Mrs. Coudray-Greaves’ disappearance.
He told a post cabinet news conference that the case remains one of a missing person.
There were reports yesterday that a motor car belonging to the taxi operator who is being held in connection with the disappearance of the Trinidadian woman has been seized by the police.
The man, said to be in his fifties, is from Lindoes Hill in Whithorn, Westmoreland.
He reportedly served time in prison.
Information reaching RJR News is that he was employed by Mrs. Coudray-Greaves to transport her to and from school.
