FBI Denver Seeks Information About a Homicide in Fort Washakie, Wyoming

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Denver Division is offering a reward of up to $5,000 to help solve the death of a 43-year-old male on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Fort Washakie, Wyoming. The case is being investigated jointly with the Wind River Police Department as a homicide.

The body of Royce Perry, Sr. was found on July 26, 2017, in a home on South Fork Road in Fort Washakie following a telephonic report to 911. Investigators are asking the public for information to determine what happened to Mr. Perry and to arrest the person(s) responsible.

“The FBI is committed to combating violent crime on reservation lands and we, along with our tribal partners, will aggressively investigate these cases,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider. “There is a strong possibility that the person or people responsible for Mr. Perry’s death lives in the community. We need your assistance to identify the individual(s) responsible for this senseless act of violence.”
