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. An RCMP liaison officer is now on site, which will make it easier to communicate with local authorities, he said. The RCMP will have to positively identify the body and then arrange for it to be repatriated.BCS Noticias, a Mexican news website, quoted local police as saying it appeared the woman had died as a result of cranial trauma and that blood stains had been found in the hotel room where she was staying. They estimated she had been dead for at least five days.RelatedThe woman's body, which appears to bear marks of violence, was found near the hotel where St-Onge had been vacationing since Nov. 29 with a male co...
