Foul Play Now Suspected in Drowning

Ten months after the drowning of an Alberta schoolteacher at Shelter Bay, British Columbia, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are now classifying the death as a homicide.

The victim, Laura Letts Beckett, a 50-year-old elementary schoolteacher from Westlock, Alberta, was fishing from a boat with her husband on Aug. 18, 2010 when she was reported to have fallen overboard into the Upper Arrow Lakes. She was not wearing a lifejacket and it was reported she couldn't swim. Her husband said he attempted to rescue her but was unable to, reports say. 

But now, nearly a year later, RCMP spokesmen confirmed the RCMP suspect foul play, saying the death is being classified as a homicide, reports say, and that investigators were conducting an additional investigation.
