He was arrested and transported to the Shiprock Police Department where he vomited in the back of the police transport van. The officer removed Descheenie and put him on a step on the outside of the van and left to find supplies to clean the backseat.
When he returned, Descheenie was gone and a search for him was unsuccessful. The FBI is being brought in to investigate Descheenie’s death.
