UPDATE: Authorities provide answers after two deaths on the Spirit Lake Nation

BIA officials say an infant death on the Spirit Lake Nation was not determined to be suspicious.

An 8-month-old infant was found dead in Tokio on April 24th.

A BIA spokesperson says it was a case of Sudden Infant Death Syndrom, or SIDS.

The BIA however, did not comment of the death of a 21-year-old male in Fort Totten.

He was found in home on March 15th.

The BIA says that case is under the jurisdictions of the FBI.

A call to the FBI today was not returned.
