The bodies of Juan Lamont, 24, Tevin Tyon, 21, and Tyrell Wilson, 23, were discovered in the car that was some 75 feet below an unpaved road near a ravine with the White River running through the area. The vehicle was found upside down near the river.
An eyewitness on the scene said it would have been difficult to see the dropoff where the car went over the cliff because of plant growth there.
The three men went missing went missing from Pine Ridge Village. One of the men told his mother they were going to “cruise the rez.”
Earlier news reports indicated they may have been in the vicinity of the Priarie Wind Casino. Their wrecked vehicle discovered about 12 miles from the casino.
