Missing St. Louis ballerina found dead in lake
A St. Louis ballerina was found dead in a lake Wednesday, two days after her car was found unattended near a lake, according to Missouri officials.
Raffaella Maria Stroik's body was discovered Wednesday morning in Mark Twain Lake, south of where her empty black Jetta was noticed by a Mark Twain Lake State Park ranger Monday, according to a release from Missouri Highway Patrol.
When the ranger saw the car was still sitting in the lot near a boat ramp on Tuesday, investigators determined Stroik, 23, was missing. A private pilot saw her body in the water and notified Highway Patrol.
Stroik's death is under investigation, but there was no immediate evidence of foul play, said Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Eric Brown. Full story HERE
