Here’s the entire story from the Associated Press:
POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — On the anniversary of his slaying, the family and friends of an American Indian man killed outside a bar remain hopeful that his killer will be found.
Lorne Red Elk, 56, was found with massive head trauma in the parking lot of Duffy’s Tavern on June 14, 2009. Doctors removed him from life support three days later.
Jeani Walesch, his girlfriend, told the Idaho State Journal that she wants to make sure Red Elk — a gentle giant of a man, in her words — doesn’t become another cold case, fading and forgotten as the years stretch on.
She said Red Elk’s death shocked her so profoundly, she has little memory of events for about a month after his death.
“When you lose somebody to something like this, it’s like a big, black cloud behind you at all times,” she said. “It’s never gone.”
