RCMP seeking more information on 2015 homicide
Victim found in Oldman River Reservoir
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.
