The ship in question is in Montreal but nobody has been arrested yet.

I would think the list of suspects would be quite small!

The ship is back to work and is heading downhound on the St Lawrence River today. As of today nobody was charged for the murder.

Thanks for the update.  I suspect there is a lot of info that is not being released.  Obviously the authorities know the cause of death.  Since there are a small number of crew members I would think the Mounties would have suspect(s).  I also would think that for a start they would make the crew take a lie detector test even though it is not always reliable. I am not a Mountie - but I wanted to be one when I was a kid - but it would seem to me with a fairly small number of people on the ship they could find out who has alibies and, again, come up with a list of suspects. I am not sure I would want to be on that ship on its next trip if a murderer is loose.

Not to be flip about someone's death but this almost reads like a good shipboard murder mystery.  Thanks again Steve for the update.
