Missing teen’s body discovered in ditch on northwest side

A family is mourning after the body of a missing teen is found in a ditch.

Family friends tell Fox 59 19-year-old Elisabeth “Lissie” Pack was last seen getting picked up by someone at a Speedway gas station on 60th and Michigan Road on February 26.

Three weeks later, her body was found near 63rd Street and Bettcher Avenue on the northwest side.

“I’ve been going non-stop since I found out she was missing,” said Cierra Bronson, a family friend. “Every day all I think about is what I can do to find her. What can I do today to find her?”

Family and friends rushed to the scene immediately after hearing news of a body found.

“I’m pretty sure it’s her because she went missing around this area,” said Bronson. “She’s 19. She was innocent. She was a baby. She was fresh out of high school.”

Together, they waited anxiously to hear the verdict. Finally, police let Lissie’s father and brother over the crime scene tape to see the body.

Minutes later, no words were needed. Family and friends broke out in tears after Lissie’s father gave them a nod, identifying the body was that of his daughter.

Lissie’s brother, Sean Pack, told Fox 59 his family is finally finding some closure. He remembers his little sister as a young woman who lived life to the fullest.

“Now I know that’s she’s actually home,” he said. “It’s going to be different without her, but I know for a fact she’s looking over us right now. I know that for a fact.”

Elisabeth Pack’s body has been taken to the coroner’s office for an autopsy to determine a cause and manner of death. Police are asking if you have any information on this incident, call 317-262-TIPS.

      First of all punk bitch it was turned into the fucking police the day she went missing. The police did nothing, family and friends did all the work. Family and friends held seaches to find her. No one is in the mood for you negative comments, so keep that shit to yourself. I bet if she was a white woman she would of been on air the day she went missing. Then at the seen the news lady says "we havent heard anything about this" There were flyers out and everything. Zip ya lip before your lip zip you up…

        Hold my nigga, white or black, shit's real & happens to whomever. Take your racial shit to yourself & shove it up your ass. Niggas like you is why no one trusts us anymore, keep putting it on the white man & THAT IS WHY WE DON'T GET RESPECT FROM THEM. Shit heads like you bringing up more shit only gets shit thrown at us again.

    White girl goes missing (from another city) and we all know her name and details of the case because it's in the news every day. Everyone is searching, including police.

    Black girl goes missing and we find out after the fact (3 weeks to be exact) when she's already dead and her family found her in the same vicinity of where she was last seen. Where were the investigators here?

    Something is seriously wrong with this world in which we live.

    Prayers to the family of Elisabeth Pack.

    This is a terrible tragedy and instead of responding negatively, let's keep in mind that this is someone's daughter, sister, and friend. This is a young woman whose life has been cut short. It's easy to get on these blogs and post your thoughts, feelings, and opinions but the bottom line is that this is a sad time for those impacted by this horrendous crime. May GOD bless her family and may her soul rest in peace.

    If any black Or white 19yr old goes missing for a couple weeks, most people think she has just took off some were! Now if it becomes a month then yes something should be done! It is just hard for police to know what a nineteen Yr old is doing. And the police have lots of work they do everyday. They have to follow rules that r given to them when someone is missing. Has nothing to do with race!.!

    I can't imagine how the father of this young woman felt having to identify the body of his baby in a ditch like some animal. People are so heartless ! So sad !! Hoping they find the person responsible !
