RCMP seek­ing more in­for­ma­tion on 2015 homi­cide

Vic­tim found in Old­man River Reser­voir

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMETOWN NEWS SOUTHERN ALBERTA - LETH­BRIDGE HER­ALD

RCMP are still seek­ing pub­lic in­for­ma­tion in the homi­cide of Vic­to­ria Joanne Crow Shoe from more than three years ago.

Crow Shoe’s body was found on the shores of the Old­man River Reser­voir on Sept. 13, 2015. She was last seen on Aug. 31, 2015, and RCMP Ma­jor Crimes Unit in­ves­ti­ga­tors have de­ter­mined that she was likely put into the reser­voir shortly af­ter that date.

The RCMP are now re­leas­ing in­for­ma­tion re­lated to this in­ves­ti­ga­tion, specif­i­cally that in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve her body was bound by a rope be­fore she was put in the wa­ter. The rope is of kern­man­tle con­struc­tion and is white with two black trac­ers in the sheath weave, so RCMP are hope­ful some­one may be fa­mil­iar with hav­ing seen it.

In 2015, the RCMP Ma­jor Crimes Unit South de­ployed sev­eral re­sources on the reser­voir to search for ev­i­dence and clues, in­clud­ing their dive team.

They say the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still very ac­tive and the mes­sage to the pub­lic is “that Vickie Joanne Crow Shoe has not been for­got­ten and the RCMP is com­mit­ted to solv­ing this crime. Crow Shoe’s fam­ily and friends are search­ing for an­swers, jus­tice, and clo­sure.”

If you have in­for­ma­tion on this case, please con­tact the tele­phone tip line at 403-343-5582 or Crime Stop­pers at 1800-222-8477.
