    Frances Zephier is working to raise awareness so that no more children suffer the fate RieLee did and she is being stalked and harrassed. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that the last name of the perps is the same as some Tribal leaders. hhhmmm

    A Wagner resident who has been speaking out against methamphetamine use on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota has seven protection orders against people she says have been harassing her and her family.

    A Wagner couple accused of letting the body of a 2-year-old girl sit in a closet for nearly two days before reporting the death have pleaded not guilty to several charges.
    Twenty-one-year-old Taylor Cournoyer and 28-year-old Laurie Cournoyer are charged with one count of failure to report a child’s death, five counts of child abuse and various drug possession charges.

    Charles Mix County deputies took Lovell's 11-year-old cousin was taken into custody for the death. The boy has been charged, but no other details have been released because the defendant is a juvenile.

    so frustrating that we can know nothing of the minor child in custody and what (s)he is accused of doing to cause RieLee's death.

    I cannot help but worry that the minor in question is being scapegoated to protect this couple from more serious charges relating to RieLee's death.

    The politics of this situation being what they are and all

    I will continue to monitor this one as I have serious concerns that the true facts of this case may be being edited and rewritten.

    Truthfully, I am surprised that it got this far. If the house had been on the rez land, it could well be different. The fact that it is on non-rez land makes it state jurisdiction.

    How interesting that the Wagner police chief got caught up and faces charges of covering for his meth addicted girlfriend by hiding her needles in his police locker.

    BBM. Seriously? Whoa, this indeed puts many questions forward.

    Poor RieLee
    Don't take yourself so seriously... nobody else does.

    I want to know the deal about 'the way the RieLee Lovell case was handled'. What does that mean? [Only 2 comments to the article but the first one is interesting because of the last name]


    Trial set for former Wagner police chief accused of covering girlfriend's meth use
    The defense claims some potential jurors may dislike Chaney for past arrests. The defense also said there is already a lot of dislike for the Wagner police force because of the way the RieLee Lovell case was handled.

    Hmmm...very interesting that the gf he covered for was on Meth. Certainly has my curiosity piqued. Hopefully they will cover that in tomorrow's edition.

    A crew that specializes in cleaning drug-contaminated homes is at work in a South Dakota house where authorities say a 2-year-old girl was found dead in a closet while under the care of two people on a drug binge.


    Traces of methamphetamine contaminate nearly every surface in the Yankton Sioux Housing Authority home where Taylor and Laurie Cournoyer lived, Santi-Kleen Environmental Solutions official Joe Newcomb told the media.

    I wish that I could have quoted this entire article because there are several good points in it. This is the best article I have seen yet on RieLee's death. IMHO

    As a 2-year-old girl lay dead in the closet of a South Dakota home, another child invited two young neighbors over to take a look...

    ...According to police affidavits, Laurie Cournoyer had a difficult time recalling recent events and the last time she had seen the toddler. At one point when questioned about the exact time, she said, “Maybe it was yesterday, I don't know.” She could not recall who had placed the toddler in the closet.

    When an investigator asked Taylor if the kids came in for supper on July 3, he said no. The family had “kind of roughed it this month” and “really didn't cook dinner” because most of their food was gone, he said, according to the affidavit.

    I'm bringing this portion of prior post forward. With 2 adults and however many kids they claimed in their household, their SNAP [food stamps/EBT] would be at least 400-600 dollars. To me, it seems that they may have been selling their SNAP to buy drugs or drug making products. I have to wonder, if it were any other family on the rez, not connected to leadership, would they have been investigated sooner. Also, there were places they could have gone to get food for the children, if they had legitimately used up the SNAP. IMHO

    "We've dealt with alcoholism, with cocaine, heroin, all these other things, but this meth has them all beat," Housing Authority official Karen Archambeau said. "It's horrible."

    Santi-Kleen Environmental Solutions officials wearing body suits and breathing masks are teaching local workers how to properly clean meth houses.

    "I think it is very important that this be done," Archambeau said. "We have a lot of little children that are being exposed to this terrible drug, and it's so terrible because our kids don't have a chance."

    Jacie, it is so sad...when I purchased my home, I was given a paper to sign that verified that no meth had been manufactured in my home! It is an epidemic in this country! Just horrible that children are around the stuff, killed because people are high on it, and they are defenseless. It is said it numbs you of emotions, you don't feel hurt or down, until they are coming down from it...

    They didn't give a ****. Couldn't even feed the children they were given benefits for. $$$$$$$$$$$ for their meth. It always amazed me that people on meth who stay up for days at a time didn't busy themselves with making a bed, cleaning, or even going to buy food for their kids.

    Nope, nope they start a "task" and fiddle with it for days on end.

    Kids equal caching $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Bless these poor children and the horror they endured.

    A very informative read from people that purchased a house not far from me. Good lookouts. I believe this woman was instrumental in getting some kind of law passed. This isn't just happening in rural areas. What to check on when buying a new home.

    It's just my opinion but, when you have kids the focus has to be them. Checking out for even a few minutes is wrong, especially around young ones. Checking out for days is unacceptable.

    Exactly, the money for food was given to them but the kids never ate. I refused to go to my ex's sister's house; there was drug use, alcohol, cockroaches everywhere and no food for kids. The rez is rugged for adults, let alone young children.

    Besides SNAP, there are 'commods', they require actual cooking, which many young women will not do.

    Oh I agree with you 100% !!! Children are our future and every generation tries to do better by their kids than the previous generation did..that is how I was raised. My kids come first....and they are all young adults now, managing their lives in productive ways.

    It's kids like Rielee that don't deserve what they are dealt! And there are thousands more out there...

    A defense lawyer for a South Dakota woman charged under a new child death reporting law is challenging its constitutionality in a bid to dismiss the case.

    Lawyer Scott Swier is filing a motion saying the reporting law violates his client's right against self-incrimination.

    It seems, when you have a relative who is Tribal Chairman, that you think you are above the law. IMHO

    It infuriates me that there is an attempt to get off these charges because you were 'too high'. RieLee should be the important one here, no one else! Shame on them for mis-using this baby's death with a BS excuse. If you can't remember who put her in the closet or when she died, then sit in prison until you can remember.

    APNewsBreak: Lawyer challenges death reporting law

    The law "presents a defendant with the proverbial choice between `a rock and a hard place' - either incriminate herself or commit a crime for failing to do so," the memorandum in support of the motion says.

    In a statement to The Associated Press, Swier said "essentially what the state has done is criminalized a citizen's right to remain silent."

    According to police affidavits, Laurie Cournoyer had a difficult time recalling recent events and the last time she had seen the toddler. At one point when questioned about the exact time, she said, "Maybe it was yesterday, I don't know." She could not recall who had placed the toddler in the closet.

    Attorney General Marty Jackley said he could not comment specifically on the motion until the state sees it.
