Body of Princeton Resident Liz Gray Erickson Found at Spruce Run Reservoir

The body of Liz Gray Erickson was recovered Thursday in the area of the Spruce Run Reservoir within hours after her car also was found in Clinton Township, state authorities said.

Erickson, 46, had been missing since Wednesday, when she was last seen at 11 p.m. at her home.

A search was launched this morning after a New Jersey Parks Police officer noticed a car parked across from a gated area at the reservoir just after 7:30 a.m. Erickson’s body was found between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. under brush along the bank near the reservoir. Her body was positively identified after 4 p.m.

Authorities are still conducting an investigation. The New Jersey State Police and the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office have been assisting parks police.

Erickson’s husband told Princeton Police this morning that she recently has been suffering from insomnia and depression, and had talked about committing suicide. He last saw her around 11 p.m. last night. He told police he woke at 5:30 a.m. and she was gone.

Erickson’s 2014 Audi was empty and was blocking two lanes of the road when it was discovered by the police officer this morning.

A beloved figure in the Princeton community, Erickson, a mother of three, served on numerous non-profit boards and foundations. Her husband works for PRINCO, Princeton University’s investment corporation.
