On Friday the RCMP Major Crimes Unit released new information about the case, including a photo of rope that’s believed to be connected to her death.

“Investigators believe that Vickie Crow Shoe’s body was bound by a rope before she was put in the water,” the RCMP said in a news release.

The rope in question is of kernmantle construction and is white with two black tracers in the sheath weave.

Mounties hope someone will remember seeing the rope prior to Crow Shoe’s death.
