BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The family of a woman who was found severely burned on the Crow Indian Reservation two months ago has identified the victim.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1UbLvYV ) that the family identified the woman Tuesday in a news release as 28-year-old Roylynn Rides Horse. The release says she has been in a Salt Lake City burn center and seeks donations to help in her recovery.

The woman was found on April 17 in a field near the border between Northern Cheyenne and Crow reservations with burns over most of her body. Crow Sen. Shawn Real Bird says doctors told the woman’s family she had walked about 3 miles before collapsing.

The FBI and the Bureau of Indian Affairs have declined to comment on the case, citing an ongoing investigation.
