(SD)-FBI Offering Reward For Info In Pine Ridge Murder Case
PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) - The FBI is hoping a reward of up to $2,500 in a slaying last fall on the Pine Ridge Reservation will result in new information.
24-year-old Raymond Waters Jr was found dead inside a burned mobile home in Allen on Oct. 16, and the FBI says an autopsy concluded he had died before the fire, likely from being hit by an ax, and that the fire might have been set to conceal the murder.
The Rapid City Journal reports a juvenile has been charged with 2nd-degree murder in the death and that Waters' uncle, 45-year-old Nathaniel Waters, was charged in March with being an accessory and lying to federal investigators. He has pleaded not guilty.
The FBI has not said if they're hoping the reward will lead to additional suspects or are simply looking to strengthen the cases against the two current defendants.
