The case of Jimmy Eagle and the Boots
On June 25 and 26, 1975, two FBI agents cruised the AIM headquarters near Pine Ridge in search of a pair of missing boots; one agent per boot. The murder of 60 indians was on the back burner until the boot caper was resolved. By 1PM on the 26th, after the death of indian number 61, hundreds of agents descended onto the Pine Ridge Reservation.
The boots were never recovered.
This is Leonard Peltier case.
