Missing woman likely murdered
ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — Police believe Cortney Lake — the young Newfoundland mother whose disappearance generated an outpouring of concern — was murdered.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said Friday they have identified “people of interest” in the apparent death, which is now being treated as a homicide.
Const. Geoff Higdon said new footage from a vehicle’s dashcam shows her getting into a black GMC truck near her home in Mount Pearl at 7:54 p.m. on June 7.
Video shows her walking along a sidewalk, and then stopping and getting into the vehicle before it swings around and heads in the opposite direction.
