The Bureau of Indian Affairs is investigating the death of an 18-year-old man found a few feet from his family’s Lake Andes house.

Dakota Fischer’s mother says he went to a party on a late January night and apparently froze to death, though his body was bruised and scratched when it was found the next morning.

She says an autopsy is being done.

The BIA did not release any information.

Fischer’s funeral was held in Lake Andes.
