The South Dakota Attorney General Killed a Man. Everything Else Is a Mystery.
On a remote section of highway in a sparsely populated part of South Dakota, the state’s highest-ranking law enforcement official struck and killed a man while returning from a Republican Party dinner one night in late summer. In the months since, Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg hasn’t missed a day of work—and has not faced any charge in connection with the death of Joe Boever. Many South Dakotans are growing restless, including Boever’s family. Markers indicating a death went up at the crash site on Highway 14 in Hyde County last week, a grim reminder of the tragedy that had cousin Nick Nemec in tears.
Police allege the 17-year-old boy ran a red light in a Landcruiser and collided with a truck at an intersection before the 4WD rolled and ploughed into the couple who were crossing the road.
They both died at the scene in Alexandra Hills and it's alleged the teen fled before stealing a set of keys from a nearby house.
He was then arrested by police after being disturbed by the resident.
Police believe the Landcruiser was stolen from a home in Cleveland earlier that afternoon.
The 17-year-old was charged with two counts of murder as well as offences relating to dangerous driving while under the influence of an intoxicant, failing to fulfil duties at the scene of a crash, wilful damage and burglary.
After an earlier appearance he was remanded to reappear by videolink in March. The boy was then required to appear on Monday after being charged with additional offences by police.
But magistrate Rosemary Gilbert said she would refuse requests by the media to attend Children's Court proceedings because reporting on the case could be prejudicial for the teenager.
Flowers placed by dozens of people remain at the crash site some weeks after the couple died.
