THREE WEEKS after the burnt body of murdered school teacher Michelle Coudray was found in Montego Bay, Jamaica, a Jamaican school teacher has been killed in the same area over the weekend.
According to a report in the Jamaica Observer, Tania Lowe, 37, was stabbed to death in Montego Bay, last Saturday evening.
Lowe, a teacher at Harrison Memorial High School for 17 years, was at home after returning from church when her neighbours heard loud screams coming from her premises. She was later found on her lawn with a stab wound to the left side of her neck.
According to the newspaper report, the attacker has not been caught and police have not yet discovered a motive for Lowe's killing.
Coudray, the daughter of new Gender, Youth, and Child Development Minister Marlene Coudray, was last seen on June 2 entering a taxi near Cornwall College. Her body was found in a canefield at Barnett Estate, near Cornwall on June 10. She was cremated last week in Jamaica, and her ashes were buried at Paradise Cemetery at San Fernando on Saturday.
Contacted yesterday, Marlene Coudray said that she was awaiting word from the Jamaican police for an update on the state of the investigations into the case. A Jamaican taxi driver has been in police custody for the last three weeks as "a person of interest", Deputy Superintendent of the Jamaican Constabulary Communication, Steve Brown, has said.
Coudray told the Express, "I was trying to get them on the phone this morning but I did not. I am hoping to reach them later today.
They told me they would update me soon."
