Update on Atty General who hit a man with his car

[link:http://dakotafreepress.com/2020/09/15/ravnsborg-weighs-in-on-killing-man-with-his-car-in-hyde-county/|]

He said he thought he struck a deer. He said he got out of the car at the time of the accident, used his cell phone light to search for "the deer"

The sheriff came out to the scene, gave him paper work to have the car repaired. Gave him the sheriff's car to go home, because his car was messed up.

Went back the next day with his chief of staff, searched the area again, and found the body by the side of the road.

2. Who goes back if they think they hit a deer?

That doesn't sound like what people would do normally.

4. South Dakota is pretty much a mafia state.

The red sparrow had a GOP-connected boyfriend from SoDak.

There was all sorts of "funny" stuff going on awhile back with a beef packing plant, with Russian and Chinese investors.

The SoDak GOPee are mobbed up goons.

5. Why didn't the Sheriff's Department thoroughly investigate the scene that night??


The man may have been saved. I hope his brother and any other family get a good lawyer.

7. If the car was messed up, wouldn;t there be a tow truck

Somewhere in the picture? And I'm sure he's lying and the sheriff gave him his car to drive?

10. He called a tow truck while at the scene that night

The nearest one was an hour away. So rather than sit there for an hour to wait for the tow truck, the sheriff gave him the sheriff's car to drive home (back to Pierre, the capitol of the state, where the Atty general of the state would reside.)

Ravnsborg said his vehicle was too damaged to drive home so he called the nearest tow service, which is in Pierre.

Volek “graciously offered to loan me his personal vehicle so I could drive back to Pierre” after saying it would take more than an hour for the tow truck to arrive, Ravnsborg wrote.

8. Makes sense. If you're looking for a deer, you'd disregard any human remains. nt

11. "I discovered the body of Mr. Boever in the grass just off the roadway," Ravnsborg wrote.

How is it, a sherrif who would have a *really* powerful flashlight, and this guy miss a body just off the roadway, which is probably within a hundred yards at most from the car?

I would think a good prosecutor has some serious questions to ask. As well as asking witnesses at the bar & grill where the AG was for 4 hours to confirm no alcohol was consumned.

12. Jesus, I hope the poor victim wasn't lying there in distress while all this was going on.
