Police are still searching for answers about the death of Amanda Lee Langford.

Fifteen officers from Westshore RCMP, the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, and RCMP Forensic Identification Section are all involved in the investigation, attempting to trace the Sooke woman’s actions from when she arrived at the park Friday to when she was found in the water.

A July 5 autopsy conducted in Vancouver was inconclusive.

The body of Langford, 34, was found in the Goldstream River July 2 after the woman had been reported missing while camping at Goldstream Provincial Park.

Her body was found 100 metres from the campground, down a steep trail that leads to the water. Police say it was close to a rope swing that hangs beside the river.

Police are interviewing Langford’s friends and camping partners. It’s unknown how many people she was camping with.

Comments on Langford’s Facebook photos recalled her love for her family.
