BILLINGS – Hundreds gather in Crow Agency Saturday to remember the Little Lights, the Native American family that went missing in December.
It’s been nearly a week since the bodies of Teddy and Juliet Little Light were found near Fort Smith, but their 3-month-old son, Wyatt, remains missing. And while the family continues to search for answers, they gathered Saturday to remember.
Hundreds gather in honor of 30-year-old Teddy Little Light and 25-year-old Juliet. Even with the many questions left unanswered, family and friends made it their priority to honor the family. "We will never stop looking for answers," says Randall Black Eagle.
After the family disappeared for five months without a trace, family members were notified by authorities that the couple’s bodies had finally been found Monday. And though they’re prayers were answered in a different way than hoped, family members say the news and funeral service brought them some closure.
"God must have known it would take us five months for our families to be strong enough to accept Juliet’s death," says Black Eagle.
Loved ones described the couple as full of life and passion, and say they were loved by many. "Juliet’s sisters, nieces, and nephews would pass out fliers with pictures, and visit every pawn shop in Billings to find clues."
Juliet worked in the Crow Tribal Courts and was known for her tribal dancing and singing. Family members described Teddy as an athlete, who debuted last year in Billings’ Thursday Night Fights.
"He was noble, funny serious and strong-willed," says a family member. And though the Little Light couple is now being laid to rest, family members say their story is not yet over. "We will honor Juliet’s memory, by finding Wyatt and finding the answers to these questions," says Black Eagle.
The FBI, BIA, Big Horn County, and Crow Fish and Game are all involved in the ongoing investigation.
