The FBI says leads and tips are still coming in on deaths of two Lakota men near the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation and a young girl near the Rosebud Sioux Reservation.

But all three deaths remain unsolved after years of investigation, although the Bureau of Indian Affairs has assigned new agents to Pine Ridge. Hard Heart and Black Elk died in 1999 near the border town of Whiteclay, Nebraska.

Meanwile, the death of Richynda Roubideaux near Rosebud dates to 1997. Roubideaux's aunt hopes to arrange a memorial walk for her niece this month and the FBI might increase a $30,000 reward for information relating to the case.
