Weeks after Hardin teen’s body found, questions swirl about investigation of her death

Weeks after Hardin teen Selena Not Afraid’s body was found near an I90 rest stop, Big Horn County investigators are responding to tough questions and criticism from their own community.

Last weekend, authorities released final autopsy results for the 16-year-old Not Afraid, who went missing on New Year’s Day from a rest stop between Billings and Hardin. She was found dead 20 days later, just about a mile away.

The medical examiner confirmed she died of hypothermia, and the situation surrounding her death was deemed accidental.
