“From Businessman to ‘Cowboy Tygg’”

Jessica says her once successful Uncle Ed had a long-standing career in the aerospace industry but lost everything in just six months. She says he left his home, marriage, children, and job and began street performing and preaching as “Cowboy Tygg.” She says her once responsible uncle has since been arrested seven times, destroyed his credit, gotten multiple tattoos, and moved across the country where he now spends most of his time high and drinking, floating in a motel pool. Ed’s sister, Dawn, and brother-in-law, Bill, say Ed suddenly “snapped” last year, and no one knew what was happening or how they could help him. Ed says he believes he would never have been in the position he is today if it wasn’t for his parents betraying him one year ago. Ed says his parents have been dead in his eyes ever since.

Missing and Murdered in Montana

You have most likely heard of Gabby Petito, Natalee Holloway and Lacy Peterson. But have you heard of Henny Scott, Ashley Loring, or Jermain Charlo? Those are the names of just a few of the Indigenous women who have disappeared. Some are discovered dead days later, some are never found. But the mystery of what happened to them often remains unsolved. Families say they don’t get answers from law enforcement and are left grief-stricken with no closure. Their stories are not unique — not in Native American communities where there is an epidemic of missing women. According to their families, no one cares about these girls, and that’s why you never hear about them. Nate and Paula’s 14-year-old daughter, Henny Scott, disappeared almost three years ago while she was hanging out with friends and was found dead two weeks later. Ashley Loring was only 20 years old when she disappeared four years ago. She was last seen in Browning, a Montana town on the Blackfeet Indian reservation. Her mother, Loxie, says there are still no answers. Former criminal prosecutor Loni Coombs, tribal filmmaker Rain, and Representative Greg Stanton of Arizona tackle this nationwide epidemic with Dr. Phil. This is a call to action because Indigenous women say they have a target on their back.

If you want to help Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, write to your congressperson and senators and let them know that you care about this issue and it matters. You can also write to newspapers and local TV stations.

If you have any information, please call the Missing and Murdered Unit tip line at: 1-833-560-2065.
