Imagine a place where your daughter goes missing and your cries for help may not be heard. A place where Indiginous women are murdered at 10 times the rate of any other ethnic group and killers are rarely brought to justice. In this two-hour documentary special, attorney and investigative journalist Loni Coombs focuses on the cases of three young, Indigenous women whose deaths on and around the Northern Cheyenne and Crow Reservations remain a mystery. Watch Murdered & Missing in Montana, where danger comes with the territory.
Phylliss Firecrow, a former Big Horn County Sheriff’s officer, helps Loni Coombs with the cases. She also describes her own personal connection to the MMIW crisis: her sister, LaTisha Joy Brien, was murdered.
Loni Coombs describes what she thinks law enforcement can do differently when it comes to cases about murdered and missing indigenous women, including “caring” and “emphasizing with the families.”
Former Prosecutor Loni Coombs shares the circumstances of three young women's disappearances and deaths: Henny Scott, Kaysera Stops Pretty Places and Selena Not Afraid. The documentary special premieres on Oxygen November 12th at 8/7c.
"Every Native American in Montana has a relative who went missing or murdered," someone intones. The alarming statistics paint a disturbing picture that’s explored in the new Oxygen special "Murdered And Missing In Montana."
