  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The U.S. attorney's office says federal authorities are investigating a death on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
    Thirty-year-old Jeremiah Sage, of Halliday, died Thursday in New Town.
    U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon on Tuesday confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Bureau of Indian Affairs are looking into the case. He declined to release details.
    Cousin Brad Sage, of Mandaree, told The Associated Press members of the family were meeting with authorities Tuesday afternoon to learn about the circumstances of the death.
    Sage says he last talked with Jeremiah about nine days ago, and his cousin didn't indicate then that anything was wrong.
    Bureau of Indian Affairs spokeswoman Nedra Darling, based in Washington, D.C., says the investigation is ongoing and cannot comment on the status of the case.
