Wheels of justice slow for Lakota woman


OGLALA –– On April 30, 2015, Oglala resident Jessie Renae Waters was found dead outside of Oglala on a fire road just over a hill overlooking highway US 18. She was several months pregnant at the time of her death.

Nearly a year later and no charges have been filed; but the person the family believes to be responsible for her death, Duane Benson, has recently plead guilty to “arson within special maritime and territorial jurisdiction” in court proceedings held at the Andrew W. Bogue Federal Building in Rapid City.
