Does anyone know where one might locate an obituary for either Lesa Baumgardner or Erik Snow??
I have found little about either one of them thru
all the research I have done. Thank you

I have read your comments about Erik and Lesa. Below your comments I have asked for any type of information about either of them, but mainly about Erik and his family. I could find very little information about either of them. I am saddened by reading this type of news and my condolences to the families of Erik and Lesa.
Any thing you could share would be appreciated. Thank YOU!!

I typed this message once before but am not finding
it, aparently, I missed something.
As you can see I have been seeking information
such as an obituary or any comments about those who knew Erik or Lisa.
I have a friend who's grandaughter has a baby and
Erik is possibly the father of this child. There
are many pieces missing about who Erik is, if he has parents, sisters or brothers. If this child is
Erik's, and he has no other children, this would be
a gift to all who are related to Erik.
Anything anyone would like to share would be appreciated. Thank you

To Lesa's step-sister. Thank you for thinking that someone has a phone number for Erik's parents. You need not worry about trying to get a phone number.
You have answered the question of did he have parents, and apparently has.
I am so sorry for those of you who are trying to
get through these days and wondering why this had to be. If you know the city his parents are in, I can do the research.
When there is such an awful tragedy and you lose someone you love, you have all you can do just to
get through each day. I have always wondered why someone who doesn't care to live anymore has to take others with them. In fact it makes me very angry, that an innocent person pays the price of someone who apparently has a problem.
I wish you all well and that you can find some peaceful times as you deal with all the mixed emotions and feelings you have. Talk to your friends and share your feelings. When I lost my husband, I knew he wasn't well, but it makes little difference, life has changed. A Doctor told me, not to shut myself away from friends and family and not to close all the draperies and hide from the world.Just try everyday to do something that you truly like to do, whatever it is.
Thinking of you, in this journey of living with
your loss.

To Lesa's step-sister. My husband and I were friends of Lesa's in Columbia. A bunch of us just heard about Lesa and we are heartbroken. We have not gotten all of the information and would really like to know more. What we have gotten from the newspaper is so brief. We are so sorry for your loss and would really appriciate any information you can provide.

Hello, I am Lesa's cousin, we grew up like sister's and I have just been so heart broken over all of it. Erik was her boyfriend and the police have said it is murder suicide but I am not convinced. I went to her house and got her cat and her house was a mess that was not like Lesa. Her grandmother my aunt passed away from cancer the same day Lesa did so she did not get to attend her funeral. I have tried to find out any information I can but have run into nothing but road blocks. If you know anything you can tell me about Lesa's life the past few years it would really be appreciatted.
Thanks,

I did not know either of them but also tried to find out any info I could. I did manage to find her obituary At the Murray Funeral Home, Boliver, Missouri.I have a friend who's granddaughter may have a child and Erik Snow couldl be the father.
I suppose DNA will tell if he was. There was no published obituary for Erik Snow. I understood, the family didn't want to add to the already published reports in Newspapers. Susan

We are so sorry for your loss. Ever since we heard we have just had a hard time understanding. Lesa has many friends in Columbia. My husband has known her for years because she dated one of his good friends but I came to know her over the past few. If you have any questions for us feel free to email me [email protected]

Thank you. I found the obit last night. Unfortunately it does not answer any of our question. We probably will never find out why this occurred. Lesa was a sweet person that did not deserve what happened to her. This is such a tragedy.

Hello, I am Erik's sister. I was just thinking about him and googled his name. Read through these comments and thought I would write something. I don't really have any information, but I'm here for any questions.

Hello,

I am Lesa's cousin. I would love to know more about Erik,what kind of person he was and if you would have any idea why or how he could have killed Lesa? Did you ever meet Lesa? I just have so many unanswered questions if you can tell me anything I would greatly appreciatte it. My family and I are sorry for the loss of your brother and hope you have found some peace. We lost my aunt Lesa's grandmother about 12hrs before we found out about Lesa and it was just so much to take in. Thanks for posting and I hope to hear from you soon.

I am Lesas sister and I am appalled at this. If this killer had a child you should be concerned about its mental health.

Yes I agree it was very nice of someone who didn't know my sister to give her killers friends the parents names and numbers.
