FBI offers $10,000 award for information on murder case

Posted: Updated:

It's been almost a year since Matthew Grant was found dead in an alleyway in Browning.  No one has been arrested in his case and now the Federal Bureau of Investigation needs for your help.

The quick answer to that question is the FBI has no leads in this case what so ever.

We spoke to Matthew's aunt Rhonda. She told us the family searched for him for two weeks after his disappearance before he was found dead on New Years Eve with what appeared to be stab wounds to his back.

Rick Shelbourn with the FBI said they are offering a $10,000 award for information that leads to the arrest of those involved with the death of Matthew Grant.

"We take crime seriously on the Blackfeet Reservation and this is an example of the extent we are willing to go to to resolve those crimes and hold people accountable.  This is just another effort to continue working with the community," said Shelbourn.

He said this also sends an important message to those grieving for Matthew.

"Your death of a family member has not been forgotten and we are working very hard to hold someone accountable,"said Shelbourn.

Matthew's aunt Rhonda Grant Connelly, told us about her nephew.  He had moved from Wetaskiwin Alberta in late 20-15. He was excited to be part of his father's family and to live in America. Rhonda said their family has been living a nightmare since Matthew's death.

"It's been like hell. Every day I wake up and think about him, every night when I go to sleep I think about him. We wake up during them night and wondering and think about what they have done to him how long he suffered, how long he laid there and why nothing you know why there hasn't been any arrests. We've had several leads. Its just hard on all the family,"said Connelly.

He was not the only one who was taken from the family. Shortly after learning about her sons death Matthew's mom took her own life.

Meanwhile, his son will never know his own father. He was born 6 months after Matthew was found in that alleyway.

Again - the FBI said they have nothing to go off of right now in this case and are asking people to step forward with any kind of information.

We asked if they were concerned with the amount of crime that seemed to be on the reservation. They said they are making every effort to work with the community they did not feel the crime was rate was different than any other reservation in the state.
