The body of a Diego Martin man reported missing last Friday is believed to have been found in a shallow grave close to his home.
Christian “Cake Soap” Harewood, of Cameron Road, Petit Valley, was last seen around midday on January 17.
Cindy Rattan, Harewood's wife, asked if she had been able to confirm it was him, said no. Rattan said, "I have a feeling it is him."
She said the head was missing from the body found in the shallow grave Saturday. Rattan said she was questioned about the clothing Harewood was wearing when he disappeared.
Rattan said the former Air Guard Officer, who would have celebrated his 29th birthday on July 20, was earning a living doing “odd jobs.” She denied knowing anyone who would want her husband dead.
Rattan described the father of two girls, ages 13 months and nine, as "a good father and loving husband."
Rattan recalled giving him a $100 to buy pampers for the baby. He then told her he was "going to handle a scene and would be back sometime later."
Although Rattan said she heard gunshots in the area a while later, she did not become worried until he failed to return home in the evening.
Harewood was last seen liming by a shop a short distance away from his house.
Revealing that officers of the Western Division Task Force had returned to the area Saturday morning to search for him, Rattan said it was a stray dog that Harewood often fed, that led officers to the buried body.
She said as officers began searching an empty lot of land, the dog which had been following them suddenly began barking and pawing at the ground where flies and worms could be seen.
Minutes later, the decomposing corpse was found.
In a post on her FaceBook page, Rattan acknowledged Harewood’s advice to her to remain strong if anything ever happened to him.
She is set to accompany Harewood’s relatives to the Forensic Science Centre, St James, Monday.
