BILLINGS – The Big Horn County Coroner said Thursday the case of a young girl found dead on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation needs more review before a cause of death can be determined.

Meanwhile, a funeral date has bee set for the young girl in Lame Deer. Scott’s funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 5 at Lame Deer High School.
