While police are not releasing the woman's name, they have issued a photograph in the hopes of somebody will recognize her.

The RCMP are interested in any sightings and in identifying anyone she may have been with in the hopes of building a timeline of her final days and hours.

The 24-year-old Montreal woman was new to Fort McMurray, only arriving a couple of weeks before her death, said police.

Investigators have spoken to several friends and associates and have learned she spent the Friday night at a downtown nightclub in the company of an unidentified man wearing work pants with horizontal fluorescent stripes along the cuffs.

The woman left the bar alone at about 2 a.m Saturday and was known to use cabs for transportation.

Her body was found Sunday at about 9:45 a.m. in the snow.

An autopsy was completed Tuesday, but results were inconclusive and police are now waiting for results of toxicology tests.

Police do not believe there is any risk or danger to the general public stemming from the incident.
