GREENVILLE - With the Hunt County Grand Jury scheduled for July 27, 2012,regarding the latest developments in the death of the sacred white buffalo calf, "Lighting Medicine Cloud," State Representative Dan Flynn once again reiterated his full support for the fourth generation grandson of Sitting Bull, Arby Little Soldier, and his wife Pat. Representative Flynn said, "The death of this important symbol to the Native Americans in Hunt County and all over deserves the full attention of law enforcement and justice officials to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice."
On April 30, 2012, just days before the first birthday celebration of Lighting Medicine Cloud was to take place, it was discovered that the sacred white buffalo calf had been killed. The family had just buried Gentle Ben, the Sire, after he had been struck down by lightning a week earlier. Immediately following the death of Gentle Ben, and the discovery of murdered Lightning Medicine Cloud, they had to endure yet again the pain of loss when "Buffalo Woman," the mother of Lightning Medicine Cloud, was found dead with knife wounds lying just feet from the burial of the scared calf.
Investigators concluded that the death of both were not by natural causes. This case remains in the hands of the Hunt County Sheriff's department. "Sherriff Meeks and his team have my full confidence and support in their ongoing investigation of this senseless slaughter as they work to bring the perpetrator to justice." Representative Flynn stated.
