WAMPSVILLE, N.Y. – Elizabeth Garrow-McDonald’s death has been ruled a homicide, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.
On Monday, Madison County Sheriff Todd Hood confirmed the body found in Canastota yesterday was Elizabeth's. According to the Onondaga County medical examiner, she suffered multiple stab wounds.
According to Hood, Elizabeth’s husband, George McDonald, is a person of interest in the case.
Hood says George has requested a lawyer, and invoked his right to remain silent.
George was arrested early Friday morning on a parole violation related to a previous domestic issue with Elizabeth, and is being held at the Madison County jail.
Sheriff Hood said this is a sad day for the area, but assured the public that justice will be served.
"This thing is continuing. We have people out there today we had 25 30 people out there today following up on leads we continue to gather until the case comes to a conclusion and we gather everything that we can," said Hood.
Hood says George and Elizabeth share a child together.
According to Hood, Deputy Chris Jones found Elizabeth’ body next to a bridge on Main Street in Canastota, about half a mile from the Dunkin’ where she was last seen.
The investigation is ongoing.
