Family of Crow burn victim asks for help

Family of burned victim releases statement, asks for help | Crime & Courts | billingsgazette.com

The family of the Crow woman who was set on fire and left to die in April, has released a statement regarding her recovery.

In a Tuesday news release, family of the burned woman identified her as Roylynn Rides Horse, 28, daughter of Ernestine Pretty Weasel and Roy Rides Horse, stepdaughter of Jerry Pretty Weasel.

"Roylynn’s mother, Ernestine Deputy-Pretty Weasel, has been by her daughter’s side at the University of Utah Burn Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and they are in need of financial assistance," the statement read.

The circumstances surrounding Rides Horse's attack have not been released by authorities, who say the investigation is ongoing. According to tribal lawmakers and family, on April 17, Rides Horse was found alive, but badly burned on the Crow Indian Reservation, close to the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation.

Doctors told the family that Rides Horse walked 3 miles after being set on fire. The majority of her body was covered in burns.

The news release included instructions on how to donate to the family, who have set up an account at Billings Federal Credit Union, 2522 Fourth Ave. N. Donations should be made to Jerry and Ernestine Pretty Weasel.

"The family would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support and for respecting their privacy during this time," the release said.

A march to support Rides Horse is scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday on U.S. Highway 212. It will start just past the Little Bighorn Battlefield.

Previously, a GoFundMe page set up for the victim has a photo of the woman and a 241-character message.

"Our loved one was hurt and as family we want to help raise money for her recovery. ... She has six beautiful children. ... With the assault and burns she will require skin grafts."
