Her body was recovered in a remote area of the Warm Springs Indian reservation. An autopsy will be scheduled with the Medical Examiner’s office and results may not be available until early next week.
Warm Springs police arrested two women, Tana Lawrence and Angeledith Kalama, on charges of assault and battery, kidnapping and sexual assault related to Kalama’s disappearance, according to the bureau. Both women, tribal members, are housed in the tribal detention facility. The women may face federal charges in the future, according to the FBI release.
