QUEEN ANNE'S CO., Md. - Suspicious: it's how investigators continue to describe the death of Robin Pope.
Maryland State Police director of communications Greg Shipley says "we don't know how she died or why she died."
Last March, Pope went missing from her home on Beach Road in Stevensville, not too far from the Bay Bridge. Three weeks later, a neighbor, just down the road from her house found her body floating in the water.
Still no suspects, still no cause of death.
"That is apart of [our team of investigators] daily quest as they continue to look into how she died, why she died," said Shipley.
Shipley says because Pope was in the cold water for up to three weeks, medical examiners haven't been able to answer how she died. As for the why, here's what investigators know:
Pope went to her house on the night of March 1st to pick up some of her belongings. Her estranged husband Wayne Pope told police he left the house and returned home early Saturday morning.
Both Robin and her dog were gone.
"She had a lot of friends and was well known and certainly no reason for her to up and disappear," said Shipley. "[Investigators] have not ruled anything out and they have not ruled anyone out as possibly being involved if this was a criminal act."
Anyone with any information is urged to contact Maryland State Police Homicide Unit at the Easton Barrack at 410-822-3101.
