BILLINGS – The  FBI said in a press release issued Friday that remains found on the Blackfeet Reservation last December “are of probable historic or ancient origin.”

The results of an examination by the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Va., also determined the remains are that of a Native American male between 45 and 60 years old.

The FBI has requested the remains be returned to the Salt Lake City FBI office so they can be turned over to the Blackfeet Tribal Historical Preservation Office, the press release states.
