Shoshone-Bannock Tribes investigate woman's suspicious death

The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes have been investigating the death of a 35-year-old mother of seven who went missing last October, The Idaho State Journal reports.

Rebecca Plentywounds was last seen on the Fort Hall Reservation around October 20, 2017. Family members found her body four days later.

“My mother and little sister found her body that was dismembered and dumped in the weeds by a rundown shed on my mother’s property,” Joette Afraidofhistracks told the paper. “It looked like she was beaten. Her face was swelled up and it looked like she had been in a fight.”

Tribal police were awaiting the results of an autopsy and a toxicology report when the paper published its story on January 27.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police department at (208) 238-4000.
