No criminality was involved in the death in March 2012 of Kingcome Inlet resident Elizabeth Lagis, an investigation has revealed.

Comox Valley RCMP were involved in a search for the 33-year-old, who was reported missing while visiting in the Campbell River area.

A motorist travelling south on the Inland Island Highway near Hamm Road days after she went missing spotted what appeared to be a body in the southbound ditch.


Officers located the body of Lagis approximately eight metres down an embankment, off the highway. The location was obscured to passing motorists by a drainage culvert.

Since that date, an investigative team from the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU), with the support of the BC Coroner Service, has conducted an exhaustive investigation.


The investigation  revealed that she is believed to have passed away on March 7, 2012 at the location where her body was found.


The active VIIMCU investigation has been concluded, and this case has been turned over to the BC Coroner Service.
