RCMP investigators confirmed this morning that a body located yesterday morning, off Highway 19, between Courtenay and Campbell River is that of 33 year old Elizabeth Marie Lagis.

On March 5 Lagis traveled from Kingcome Inlet to Campbell River for medical appointments which were scheduled for March 6 and march 7.

Lagis was registered at Campbell River’s Town Center Motel and last spoke with family via telephone at 10:30 p.m. March 6.

That was the last anyone heard from the 5-ft 1-in, 110-lb First Nations woman.

A time and cause of death are yet to be determined by the BC Coroners Service, but investigators with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, the Comox Valley and Campbell River RCMP detachments, RCMP Forensic Identification Section, and the BC Coroners Service  continue to probe the circumstances surrounding this death.

Anyone who saw  Lagis in Campbell River between 10 p.m. March 6 and 2 a.m. March 7 is asked to call the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221.

Investigators are also interested in speaking with anybody who witnessed anything suspicious on Hwy. 19, near Hamm Road, during these times.
