RCMP have now ruled Victoria Joanne Crow Shoe’s death a homicide.
The 43-year-old’s body was found on Sept. 13 near Pincher Creek, Alta. along the shore of the Oldman River Reservoir at the Windy Point Campground.
Lethbridge Regional Police originally reported Crow Show as missing on Sept.15, but eight hours later changed the status of the case after an autopsy from the Calgary medical examiner determined it was her body found at the campground.
The investigation was then handed over to RCMP, who concluded she was murdered.
Police are asking for anyone who may have knowledge of her activities and whereabouts prior to when she was last seen by associates on Aug. 31 to come forward.
