NEW ROCKFORD, N.D. (AP) - Federal authorities believe the woman whose body was recovered last month from the Sheyenne River in North Dakota was killed.

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1P2qtmg ) that the death of 36 year-old Amanda Engst “appears to be a homicide.”

Engst, of Halstad, Minnesota, disappeared last fall. A dive rescue team from Jamestown recovered her body from the river Feb. 9.

The station reports Loven wouldn’t provide details of the case, including the cause of death, because of the ongoing investigation.

Authorities had suspected foul play since the body was recovered. Eddy County Sheriff Paul Lies has said that a car owned by Engst was used by two people linked to burglaries and robberies in Minnesota and North Dakota.

A previous version of this story misspelled the last name of the FBI spokesman. It is Loven, not Love.
