FORT BELKNAP, Mont. (AP) — Fort Belknap law enforcement officers and the FBI are investigating after a body was found on the icy Milk River near the Fort Belknap Agency Dam.

Fort Belknap officials, in a social media post, said the body was found at about 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The victim was identified as Thomasine Walker, 33, of Fort Belknap, Blaine County Undersheriff Chris Adair said Wednesday. An autopsy was being performed Wednesday in Billings to determine a cause of death.

Adair said he did not believe Walker had been reported missing.

Fort Belknap law enforcement also reminded residents that due to recent warm temperatures, the ice on the river has become unstable and they urged people to staff off the ice.
