Cody Alan Legebokoff
Just 21 years old when arrested and charged with the murders of four women between 2009 and 2010, Cody Alan Legebokoff is under investigation for even more murders as many women have disappeared from Northern British Columbia – eerily echoing a few years earlier in Greater Vancouver and the multitudes of missing women from downtown Vancouver. Though with that said, it is unlikely he committed any of the 18 unsolved murders along BC’s sadly-dubbed Highway of Tears due to his young age and the unsolved murders stretching back to the 1970’s.
Cody Alan Legebokoff was initially arrested and charged with the murder of Loren Leslie who was only 15 when she was murdered and found by the side of a rural area forestry road. A sharp-eyed RCMP officer noticed Legebokoff’s truck exiting a rarely used forestry access road and suspected that he was poaching. With the assistance of a BC Conservation Officer, Leslie’s body was discovered in the snow a short drive up the road.
While in police custody, their investigation lead to another three charges of murder being laid against Legebokoff. Legebokoff is suspected of murdering Natasha Lynn Montgomery, Jill Stacey Stuchenko, and Cynthia Frances Maas after extensive forensic evidence was reviewed by both Canadian and American forensic experts. To date, Natasha Lynn Montgomery’s body has not been found.
Considering Legebokoff’s young age it is not surprising to hear the police say in a press release, “Our investigation indicates he extensively utilized social media and online dating to correspond with friends, associates, potential girlfriends and others.” Legebokoff was not known to police and he did not have a criminal record.
UPDATE – The BC R.C.M.P. are asking for the public’s help in locating the body of Natasha Montgomery. While Cody Alan Legebokoff has been charged with her disappearance and death, her body has yet to be located. The area where she could be is rather large as it encompasses the areas between Prince George, Vanderhoof and Fort St. James.
Cst. Lesley Smith, the North District RCMP Media Relations Officer stated, “While Cody Legebokoff has been charged and will be tried for the death of Natasha, we still need to know where she is in order to give her family the dignity of a proper burial.”
