    Canada - Elizabeth Barrer, 32, U.S. citizen, Montreal, 19 March 2014

    The woman found shot dead in an SUV parked near the St. Pierre interchange in Lachine on March 19, has finally been identified. Turns out, she was a fugitive from the U.S.

    Elizabeth Barrer was considered a “queen-pin” of drug trafficking from Virginia, selling marijuana in the U.S. that was purchased from Canada and the Ukraine.

    U.S. Marshals caught her in 2007 because she used the social media platform Myspace to chat about the transactions.

    Montreal Police needed her fingerprints to identify her.

    “It took a week before we were in a position to identify her in a positive way because she didn't have a positive ID on her,” Constable Raphael Bergeron said.

    Police suspect her murder is linked to drug trafficking, but they don't know what she was doing in Montreal or how she was connected to her murderer.

    The case is under investigation and the killer is still on the loose.

    Montreal police are not saying the woman is Barrer, but did confirm that the shooting is likely related to drug trafficking and they are collaborating with detectives in the U.S



    The America’s Most Wanted website described Barrer as an “accused drug kingpin." U.S. marshals had been after her on charges related to the illegal drug trade, according to the site.

    "Yes, I can confirm that it (the body found in Lachine) is the same person we had opened an investigation on" in 2007, captain Jeff Pearce of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office said on Friday, when asked whether he could confirm the body found in Lachine on March 19 is Barrer.

    "We are collaborating with Canadian authorities and the U.S. Marshals Service, but we are not releasing any additional information," he said.

    He confirmed that Barrer was wanted on narcotics-related charges and that the case is being handled by the county's special investigations unit.

    From November 2016; Liz's long-ago summer camp boyfriend writes about the girl he knew:

    http://narrative.ly/my-ex-the-drug-queenpin/

    I had just turned thirty and was doing what one does after a big birthday: lamenting my failures. My life felt like a solid C+ and to make it worse I started obsessively stalking old friends’ Facebook pages, finding nothing but achievements and milestones. I’d been hoping for failures and tribulations, for any excuse I could find to grade my life on a curve. I began to focus on people I knew from the sleepaway performing arts summer camp I went to when I was fourteen...

    Soon I realized that I was looking for someone in particular. She was one of the “goths.” At camp this meant two things: she wore black clothes and only ever signed up for Dungeons and Dragons. For two summers I signed up for multiple sessions of Dungeons and Dragons every day for eight weeks and never played a single game. Instead, I followed around Liz Barrer...

    By the time fall came around, I’d almost accepted my disqualification from the race for Liz’s heart. I was back in the real world trying to establish my identity in a new high school but camp was always on the periphery. A marble notebook in my bedroom had the phone numbers of all my camp friends. I spent most nights in my room with the phone receiver to my ear, talking to Liz, although I’d given up on trying to change her mind about me. To this day have no idea why she did...

    Liz’s murder case currently remains unsolved. “My theory is that the homicide was drug-related. This is a billion-dollar business we’re talking about,” says Haney.
