Investigators from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) are asking for the public’s help in finding out what happened to 41-year-old Lisa Dawn MacPherson, whose charred remains were discovered in North Vancouver last November.

“On November 28, 2016, just before 10 am, the North Vancouver RCMP responded to a report of a burned body located in a shelter along the Bridgeman North Trail,” said Cpl. Meghan Foster a press conference on Monday.

“When police arrived, the circumstances around the victim’s death were suspicious in nature and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team took conduct of the investigation.

The victim has since been identified as North Vancouver resident Lisa Dawn MacPherson and her family has been notified.

MacPherson was last seen in North Vancouver on November 24, 2016. She is described as Caucasian, about 5’4″ in height, 130-pounds, with blue eyes, and shoulder-length blonde hair.

“There remain many unanswered questions surrounding the events that led up to Ms. MacPherson’s tragic death,” said Foster. “Investigators are working tirelessly to determine what events led up to Ms. MacPherson’s tragic death and are asking anyone with information to contact us.”

Anyone with information regarding MacPherson’s is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or my email at [email protected]

Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
