Skeletal Remains Found In South Dakota Creek

Studebaker Union County
(South Dakota Attorney General)

Evidence has been recovered from the partially submerged vehicle found Monday in Union County South Dakota.

According to the South Dakota Attorney General’s office skeletal remains were recovered from the site Tuesday along with other unidentified items. Those items will be processed and evaluated in accordance with the case.

Attorney General Marty Jackley, Union County Sheriff, Dan Limoges and Union County States Attorney Jerry Miller confirm that the site has been released by law enforcement and items of significance have been preserved.

The 1960 Studebaker Lark was found on its top in Brule Creek north of Elk Point in Union County. It is believed that Cheryl Miller and Pamella Jackson were driving that car on their way to a party on May 29, 1971.

According to the Associated Press Miller’s sisters, Rita Allen and Dawn Hewlett, live in Watertown. They told KELO-TV they’re grateful for the development in the cold case. They say their mother’s biggest wish was “never give up” — and no one has.

The sisters say they will wait to see what answers they get, and they aren’t setting any expectations.

Agencies assisting in this investigation are the Union County Sheriff’s Office, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Vermillion Police Department, South Dakota Highway Patrol, Beresford Fire and Rescue, Department of Transportation, Union County Highway Maintenance, Pollman Excavation and Division of Criminal Investigation.

No other information will be released until an autopsy is performed, testing is complete  and the families are told of the results.
