    Dramatic details emerge in missing persons case

    Husband admitted to having an affair

    Police issued warrants for the cell phone of the missing woman's husband, Christopher Leclair, after investigators learn he was having an affair.

    On Sunday, Christopher Leclair, a Commercial Fisherman from Albion, made a call of distress to the U.S. Coast Guard. He said his wife, who has now been identifed as 51 year old, Karen Leclair, fell overboard into Lake Erie when they were boating together. He told authorities he looked away for 15 minutes, and when he looked back, she was gone.

    After the Coast Guard suspended the search, the State Police served warrants. Through the investigation, Christopher Leclair told officials he was having an affair with an Albion woman.

    Police searched through Christopher's phone and saw the pair had texted on June 12th, the day after Karen reportedly went overboard.

    Lt. Wayne Kline, Crime Section Commander, said "we haven't determined anything to be suspicious in nature. We're just being thorough. We want to rule out everything and really attempt to find Mrs. LeClair."

    Officers also told us the 52 foot fishing boat was well-equipt, with all the necessary safety gear, but Karen was not wearing a life jacket.

    Those who know Leclair say he had a business providing shiners and other bait to local bait shops.

    When I click the link, I don't see an arrest. I did look at her FB page. There is a photo of her and a man standing on their boat. Might be the husband. So sad and unnecessary.

    Video helped lead to boater’s arrest in wife’s death

    Christopher S. Leclair, 48, who was arraigned on a criminal homicide charge late Tuesday night, has not offered any assistance in the investigation into the whereabouts of his wife, whom the Pennsylvania State Police believe disappeared in the lake sometime on Saturday afternoon, Lt. Wayne Kline, crime section supervisor for state police Troop E in Lawrence Park Township, said Wednesday.

    Leclair, who is in the Erie County Prison without bond, invoked his right to an attorney when he was picked up by troopers outside of his residence, at 9670 Route 6N, on Tuesday night, Kline said. During interviews with troopers on Monday, Leclair gave conflicting information and provided details that didn’t add up, he said.

    This ended up being from a passenger of the small plane that crashed into Lake Erie in December: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...belong-1-6-victims-plane-crash-Lake-Erie.html

    Tuesday a body was found on the shore of Lake Erie near Dunkirk, NY, and from reading this article there's a strong suspicion it may be Karen:

    https://www.usnews.com/news/best-st...y-found-in-ny-may-be-slain-pennsylvania-woman

    "Pennsylvania State Police and a prosecutor will attend the autopsy of a woman's body found along the New York shoreline of Lake Erie to determine whether it belongs to a suspected homicide victim.

    Authorities want to know if the body to be autopsied Wednesday by the Chautauqua County, New York coroner is that of 51-year-old Karen Leclair. "

    From the above link:

    "Lt. Wayne Kline, crime section commander of Pennsylvania State Police Troop E in Lawrence Park Township, said that Karen Leclair died from a single gunshot wound to the head from a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.

    State police investigators accuse Christopher S. Leclair of tying his wife’s ankles with rope and securing another rope around her chest containing an anchor attached to it. The anchor was a type commonly used for fishing nets and was not heavy enough to keep her down, Kline said.

    The anchor was still attached to Karen Leclair when her body was found in Lake Erie, Kline said.

    Investigators recovered the Smith & Wesson revolver Wednesday at the home of Christopher and Karen Leclair, Kline said."
