Missing Native American Woman Murdered and SCALPED in Kentucky : Political Blind Spot

25.2.16

Missing Native American Woman Murdered and SCALPED in Kentucky : Political Blind Spot: Forensic analysis shows that this was a recent murder, not something from generations past. The woman was tall, and Native American. Apart from that, she had no identification on her, and the investigative trail has run cold.

“She’s someone’s daughter, mother, sister, auntie,” Thomas Pearce emphasized. Pearce is the co-chair of the American Indian Movement of Indiana and Kentucky, and is of Ojibway ancestry.

“It was a hate crime,” said Guy Jones of Dayton, Ohio. Jones is Hunkpapa Lakota and the co-founder of the Miami Valley Council for Native Americans, in Dayton, Ohio.

“The person who did it is still out there,” Jones emphasized. He is urging the public to get involved and spread the word to help “shake loose” information that can be used to help the police finally solve this case.

“When we read about the case in a local newspaper in 2011,” Pearce recalls, “we were shocked. What happened to her was ferocious and gruesome. We were also surprised by where she was found—a place where few Native people live. We wondered if she died elsewhere and was taken there.”
