Inquest set for Indian man who died in Montana jail
An inquest into the death of A.J. LongSoldier at a jail in Hill County, Montana, will be held March 18.

LongSoldier, 18, died last November after complaining of feeling sick. State law requires an inquest whenever an inmate dies in incarceration.

LongSoldier was a standout basketball player who led his team on the Fort Belknap Reservation to a state championship. He had enrolled at Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas last fall.

LongSoldier's mother, Dayna Bear, is a community health representative for the Fort Belknap Tribe. His father, Allen LongSoldier Sr., is a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.
