S.D. investigating death of Indian teen at school
Tuesday, March 9, 2004

The South Dakota Division of Criminal is investigating the death of an Indian teenager at a school where Indians have complained of discrimination.

A spokesperson for the state attorney general's office said agents do not suspect foul play. But there are conflicting reports on how Khristopher J. Long Elk, 17, died last Thursday at the school in Faith, South Dakota.

The American Civil Liberties Union is looking into the death, which could be a suicide. Long Elk's body was reportedly found hanging in the school yard.
