Cortney Lake’s mother, Lisa Lake, will be speaking to reporters today at RNC Headquarters in St. John’s.
She’ll be on hand for a news conference, in which police will provide an update on the homicide investigation at noon.
Lead investigator RNC Sgt. Tom Warren will also be speaking and taking questions from reporters at the event, scheduled for noon.
Lake, 24, disappeared June 7 and police believe she was murdered. The last time she was seen was when she was getting into Philip Smith’s pickup around 7:30 p.m. that night near her Mount Pearl home.
Smith’s body was found early on Nov. 1 in a wooded area behind his father’s cabin at Bellevue Beach. The 25-year-old committed suicide.
More than 40 people — including RNC officers, members of the Avalon North Wolverines, Central Avalon ground search and rescue and the Rovers Search and Rescue — took part in an extensive day-long ground search, scouring the woods where his boyd was found. However, nothing turned up as evidence in the investigation.
