Body of Herwin Godoy is Recovered from River

Herwin Godoy

This morning the body of thirty-three-year-old Herwin Godoy was recovered from the river, only about a hundred yards away from where he went down on Sunday afternoon. His body was caught in a net placed within the river at the end of the search day on Monday. Just after six o’clock this morning, the family was called and informed of the recovery as they prepared to head to the site for a second day of searching. Natasha Requeña says that the family finally has closure and his body will be laid to rest on Wednesday.

“From the minute I got that call, I figured something was wrong. And the person asked me if this is the family of the person who went missing. I said, “Yes ma’am.”  She said, “Miss unu need fi hurry come. My husband deh out deh, but I need fi go. He is up, he’s up!” And I came out and I just started to scream and I tell everybody we need to go, we need to go, even though we were outside packing the van ready to leave. We got up there and that was one time I couldn’t even cry. I had to be strong for everybody because that’s all I wanted. All I wanted was closure and believe me we got what we wanted.”

“Where was his body found?”

“Yesterday, just before we left, Sheppard insisted that we place a net and exactly where we placed the net, about a hundred feet or so from where he went down, his body was trapped in the net.  I must say, we are at peace. At least we know we have a body that we can definitely lay to rest.  And that’s all we wanted and like I said we wanted closure and we got the closure that we wanted. I must say thank God, he has been good to our family. We prayed every step of the way, we prayed every move we made and he didn’t fail us.”
