UPCOMING TODAY:

DEATH AND DISAPPEARANCE IN INDIAN COUNTRY

VALIER, Mont. — The 2017 disappearance of 20-year-old Ashley Heavy Runner Loring, a member of the Blackfeet Nation, is one small chapter in the unsettling story of missing and murdered Native American women and girls. No one knows precisely how many there are because some cases go unreported, others aren't documented thoroughly and there isn't a specific government database tracking these cases. But one U.S. senator with victims in her home state calls this an epidemic, a long-standing problem linked to inadequate resources, outright indifference and a confusing jurisdictional maze.
