On the evening of Saturday, Sept. 5, Warm Springs Tribal Police Department officers responded to a report of suspicious circumstances in the Greeley Heights area of Warm Springs.
When they arrived, they found a person, who was later identified as Jonathan Gilbert, in a life-threatening situation.
As officers attempted to provide CPR and other life-saving procedures, and prior to the arrival of emergency medical personnel, Gilbert died.
An investigation was immediately initiated with the department's investigations unit and the FBI, who have developed a person of interest in the matter.
Forensic teams were called to the scene, and Gilbert's body was taken to the medical examiner's office to determine the official cause of death.
