AN Islington woman who went missing in Jamaica has been found dead by police, it has been reported.

Karen Cleary, 44, had been missing since November 25, after she travelled to the island to work on a new home.

Her partner, Andy Kane, said in an emotional Facebook post on Monday: “Since last Tuesday when I found out Karen Cleary was missing I’ve had a feeling that the freight train of reality was barrelling down the tracks towards me. Today it pains to say that train hit me hard I am so sorry to pass on the news that today after a painstaking search by the Jamaican police team that the time for hope and optimism has unfortunately passed, they have recovered her body, Karen has now gone on to a better place.

“Karen has been that shining star in my world for over 13 years, that world has now turned very dark indeed.”

It has been reported her body was found buried on her property in Boscobel, St Mary, and that a suspect was being held by police.

It was also said that Ms Cleary, reportedly from Pentonville Road, was stabbed to death in an argument over the work at the property.

The Tribune has contacted police in Jamaica for comment.
