Laval resident Christine St-Onge, 41, who went missing in Mexico on Dec. 5, 2018.
The body of a woman believed to be that of a Quebecer missing in Mexico for more than a week was found near a hotel in Los Cabos, provincial police said on Thursday.Laval's Christine St-Onge, 41, had been missing since Dec. 4.Sgt. Claude Denis, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec, said although an autopsy was already performed in Mexico, a second autopsy will have to be done when the body returns to Quebec to determine the cause of death and to formally identify the body.Denis said investigators had already informed St-Onge's family of the discovery.Denis said the investigation is complicated because SQ investigators are far from where the body was found.
