Niagara Falls will light up in green this Friday in memory of St. Catharines veteran Katrina Blagdon, who was found dead in the waters of Port Dalhousie last week.
Niagara Falls city councillor Lori Lococo announced that Niagara Falls will go green–a colour representing Katrina Blagdons past military service, and the banner of the tens of thousands of supporters and friends in ‘Trina’s Army’–between 10:15 p.m – 10:30 p.m on Friday. For those unable to make it to the display in person, it can be viewed on a live stream found here.
It was last Wednesday that the four-month long search for Blagdon, 37, came to a tragic end, after her body was found in the lock of the Heywood Generating Station in Port Dalhousie by St. Catharines hydro workers. A post-mortem done in Toronto concluded the identity on Tuesday, May 10. A statement from the family said some belongings believed to be Blagdon's were found earlier this week snagged in 12 Mile Creek next to Wellandvale Bridge.
A statement from Niagara Regional Police said foul play is not suspected.
