Investigators Still Looking For Information 1 Year After Suspicious Death Of Robin Pope

Posted: Updated:

QUEEN ANNE'S CO., Md. - Police say they are still investigating the suspicious death of a Queen Anne's County woman, last March, and are looking for more information. Maryland State Police say on March 2nd, 2013 at 2:00 AM, the Queen Anne's County Emergency Operations Center received a call from Wayne Pope Jr., reporting suspicious circumstances involving his wife.

Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office Deputies say they responded to the Beach Road home in Stevensville, and found out that Wayne Pope's wife, Robin, had come home on March 1st, 2013, to get some personal items, after being separated from Wayne since December 2012. Wayne reportedly said he left the house, and when he came back early Saturday morning, her car was still parked in the driveway, but she wasn't home, and their dog, a Great Dane, was missing. Deputies say they found Robin Pope's keys, purse, credit cards, and cash were all still inside her vehicle.

The dog was found dead later in the day on March 2nd, 2013 in the water, near a pier at the Pope's home. Officials weren't able to identify a cause of death for the dog, only that it did not die from external trauma.

On March 23rd, 2013, the body of Robin Pope was found, by a fisherman, in the water near Bay Drive in Stevensville. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner apparently were not able to determine a cause an manner of death. Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators are still looking for answers and evidence in this on-going case. They say that even though Robin Pope's cause and manner of death haven't been determined, they are still considering her disappearance and death suspicious.

Investigators reportedly have not ruled anything out as a possibility, or ruled anyone out as a suspect, all possibilities remain open. If she died as the result of a crime, State Police say they are committed to finding the person or persons responsible, and bringing them to justice.

At this time, almost a year after Robin Pope's suspicious death, MSP are still asking for assistance from the public. Police say that the area where she disappeared and was later found dead, is isolated, but they believe there are people that could have information that would be helpful in their investigation. Anyone who has information, even if they think it is insignificant, is urged to contact the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit at the Easton Barrack, at 410-822-3101.
