Erin Corwin has been missing since June 28 and now her body has been located. The search never stopped for her, but today they found her body. This Marine's wife has been found, but her alleged lover is the one who was under arrest for her death. On Monday, Inquistr shared about what happened when they found the body of Erin Corwin today.
The body was found in a mineshaft today. Christopher Lee had become a suspect when news came out that Erin had been having an affair with him. He was also married and whenever Erin went missing he went to live in Alaska. This man had a wife and daughter. Erin was three months pregnant when she went missing which has everyone wondering who the father really was and if that is the reason she was killed. It does appear that she thought that the baby was Lee's and not her husband's child.
Other people knew that they were involved and were even planning to spend some time together on a day trip. Now it looks like things didn't go as planned on their big day.
ABC News shared a bit more information today. Erin Corwin's body was 140 foot down in this abandoned mine shaft. It was near Twentynine Palms and on federal land. They did use dental records to confirm that it was the body of Erin, who had been missing for two months before she was located.
Investigators in the case shared a bit more saying, "It is highly likely that Erin could have been harmed by an unknown firearm. Sometime after Erin left with Lee, her phone was deactivated (turned off). Detectives believe if Erin was injured and left at an undisclosed location, she would not (be) able to call for help." This is a sad ending to the search for Erin Corwin.
