Three Pine Ridge reservation men found in 60-feet ravine died of auto accident, investigation finds


OGLALA, S.D. -- Three men who were missing for days on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and discovered in a vehicle in a 60-foot deep ravine have been found to have died from an automobile crash, U.S. attorney Randy Seiler announced on Friday.

Seiler said an extensive investigation by several agencies and autopsies “firmly establishes” that reservation residents Juan Lamont, Tevin Tyon and Tyrell Wilson died as a result of the crash.

Investigators found the vehicle in which the three men were riding left BIA Road No 41, also known as the “Chadron Road”, a few miles from Oglala, and plunged down a ravine about 60 feet deep where the car came to rest near a creek bed.
