A Google Cloud manager has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife during a vacation in Hawaii with their children after a body was found on a beach.
Harvard-educated Sonam Saxena, 43, reported his wife Smriti missing on Tuesday claiming the 41-year-old mother-of-two had vanished during a late night stroll on a secluded beach south of Anaehoomalu Bay, in South Kohala.
The couple, from Bellevue, Washington, were on vacation with their two daughters aged 13 and eight to celebrate their eldest child’s birthday – a trip they take every year.
He said Smriti, a business program manager for Microsoft, suffered an asthma attack and disappeared while he went to get her inhaler from their room at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort.
Police found a body yesterday morning near where she was last seen and arrested Saxena a few hours later on suspicion of second degree murder.
The Hawaii Police Department has not yet released the identity of the body but said in a statement that it was ‘located in the general area where Smriti Saxena was reported as a missing person and last seen Tuesday evening.’
The statement added: ‘The identity of the female body is being withheld pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.
