Noah Pippin Investigation Continues

Posted: Updated:

A tragic story that took Montana by storm years ago was when a Marine went missing in September 2010 while traveling into the Bob Marshall Wilderness.

It was on August 28th that the missing persons remains, most notably part of his skull, were found.  Authorities though are still trying to find answers.

Former Marine Noah Pippin was the person who's remains were found in the Bob Marshall Wilderness.  Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton is now doing further investigations as a search involving him, two deputies, and Kevin Arnold of the Forest Service has ensued into the wilderness.  According to Undersheriff David Rau the reason for the search is to see if they can find more evidence surrounding Pippin's disappearance and death. 

They are traveling by horseback to the scene which is approximately twenty-five miles away from the start point and ran into trouble as part of the trail needed to be cleared in some areas.

Authorities feel that the evidence they are searching for could aid the Coroner in finally determining a cause of death for Pippin which is still currently unknown.  According to Undersheriff Rau, the next update should be in by around 7pm, and that Sheriff Dutton and his crew are expected to investigate until Friday at this time.
