Triple Homicide on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

 

January 13, 2022



On the early morning hours of January 5, a triple homicide occurred in Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. On January 10, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s Department of Public Safety released the names of three deceased victims who were shot and killed inside a home on the reservation.

The bodies of Alma Garneaux, 38, Jamie Graham, also 38, and Michael White Plume Sr., 39, were found shot to death inside a home located at 554 BIA 28, Wounded Knee, according to a statement from the FBI.

“My heart is broken for the families of the three victims,” said South Dakota State Senator Red Dawn Foster to Native News Online. “This level of violence is not reflective of our community or our people. As the community begins to heal from his senseless act of violence, continue to pray for the families.” Foster represents District 27 from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and is Oglala Lakota and Diné.
