Dead body found near former Dakota Access Pipeline protest camps

An apparent Dakota Access Pipeline activist missing since October has been found dead floating in the Cannonball River near the site of the former protest camps. A local fisherman discovered the body of Damjan Nedelkovski, 35, of Glendale, California, near the shoreline at the river’s mouth, according to a press release issued Monday by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department in Mandan, North Dakota. “Family and friends report that their last contact with Nedelkovski was on October 29, 2016,” said the statement. “His stepbrother filed a missing person report with the Glendale Police Department on November 16, 2016. Nedelkovski was known to be at the protest camps.” The autopsy performed by the North Dakota Medical Examiner’s office in Bismarck revealed “no trauma to the body to suspect any foul play. The cause of death is still pending, and authorities are unsure how long the body was in the river.”...more
