Poplar Man Stabbed to Death

Woman Turns Herself In


On Monday, Feb. 1, at about 9:30 a.m., Poplar resident Robert Todd Pinkerton Jr. was fatally stabbed once in the chest by an unidentified female. The female turned herself into police shortly after the incident and was placed into tribal custody.

The victim was found in a home on the 500 block of D Street East in Poplar, and transported by ambulance to the Poplar hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Ken Trottier, supervisory criminal investigator for the Fort Peck Tribes, said the woman and the victim were in a romantic relationship and it is believed that the individuals (both in their early twenties) resided in the home where the incident took place.

Trottier said the unidentified individual will be charged with murder and would likely appear in court for arraignment by today.

The Fort Peck Department of Criminal Investigation and FBI are investigating the incident.
