A Jamaican-born British woman has been found dead in the Caribbean island.
Karen Cleary, 44, had been building her dream home in the country of her birth when she went missing on Sunday, November 25. Her body was found buried in a shallow grave on her property in Boscobel, St Mary on Monday afternoon.
Her boyfriend, Andy Kane, later confirmed via Facebook that the body of his lover had been found.
Cleary’s body was found wrapped in a tarpaulin in a hole which had been covered with a layer of concrete and dirt.
A post-mortem will be done to determine the cause of death.
Sources explained that it is believed Cleary was stabbed to death by a man and her body later buried on her property at the Boscobel Housing Scheme.
The suspect has been described as a labourer from St Catherine who was working on her house. He was apprehended by the St Mary police and is to be questioned once he attains legal representation.
Unconfirmed reports are that he confessed to the killing.
Cleary, a hairdresser and beautician, from Islington, North London in England, was last seen alive about 9 pm Sunday, November 25.
