Feds investigate child death on ND reservation
FORT TOTTEN, N.D. (AP) _ Federal authorities are investigating the death of a 3-year-old boy on the Spirit Lake Reservation in North Dakota.
FBI spokesman Kyle Loven says that agency and the Bureau of Indian Affairs are looking into the ``mysterious'' death last Thursday. Authorities aren't releasing details, citing the ongoing investigation.
The effectiveness of child protection services on the reservation has been the subject of debate for more than a year. The BIA took over child protection services last fall following criticism that the tribe had failed to protect vulnerable children.
