“We have concluded our physical examination of the scene off of Hwy 27, with other aspects of the investigation ongoing. Legebokoff’s GMC pick up remains with police and continues to be examined. Investigators with the RCMP North District MCU executed a search warrant at the Prince George residence of Cody Legebokoff on Wednesday December 1st. Our officers attended the Laird Drive residence in Prince George in efforts to collect any evidence connected to the death of Loren Leslie” stated Cpl Dan Moskaluk.
“The investigators are not releasing any information pertaining to the cause of death or of the injuries sustained by the victim at this point in the investigation. We can confirm that part of the post mortem forensic examination was performed at the Kamloops Royal Inlands Hospital last week. Investigators also sought the expertise of a particular specialist, state side, in Pennsylvania last week, which saw the transfer of the young girls’ remains to a facility in Pennsylvania. We are unable to provide details at this time as to the nature of this particular portion of the post mortem examination, but can state that it was a necessary and important step to take. We want to ensure that we are very thorough and do our best by Loren and her family” added Cpl Dan Moskaluk.
