Body Found in Hartford is Missing New Britain Woman: Police

Hartford police have identified the body found behind an apartment building as that of a missing New Britain woman.

Officers found the body of 23-year-old Lamik "Queen" Lozada near a river behind the apartments on Woodland Street on Wednesday. They are treating her death as a homicide.

Lozada was reported missing to New Britain police on February 8, but family members said she hadn't been seen since late January.

Her body was found as police were following up on a drug arrest at 7 Woodland Street from Tuesday night. They charged Ronnie Grineyard, 37, with selling PCP out of his apartment.

Grineyard was also a suspect in Lozada's disappearance, according to police.

A missing person flyer issued by New Britain police last month described Lozada as a known PCP user.

An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
