Natalie Dawkins, the Clarendon teacher who has been missing for over a week, has been found dead.
Police have confirmed that her body was found in a shallow grave in Sandy Bay, Clarendon on Thursday.
Dawkins, a teacher of Four Paths Primary and Junior High School, has been missing since Tuesday, March 30.
The educator’s motor vehicle was found in Bellas Gate, St Catherine on Saturday, April 3, after two men attempted to sell it. The men engaged police in a shootout and one was subsequently killed, while the other escaped.
The deceased man has since been identified as 20-year-old Jeff Bedward, alias ‘Water Lord’ of Bellas Gate, St Catherine, and Chatteau and Sandy Bay districts in Clarendon.
Bedward’s brother was taken into custody on Wednesday, as a probe into her disappearance continued.
