The FBI has confirmed that a young boy died Nov. 26 after an incident on the Wind River Indian Reservation, but says the case is still being investigated.
Travis Blackburn Jr., 10, died in an accident, according to his obituary. He was a student at Rendezvous Elementary School in Riverton.
WyoToday reported that Blackburn was “accidentally” run over by a vehicle while sledding on the reservation, presumably referencing police scanner traffic.
Fremont County Coroner Erin Ivie, who investigates deaths on the reservation and throughout Fremont County, declined to comment.
Cowboy State Daily will update this story as more information becomes available.
