Montowine, age 31 of Santa Fe, NM, was shot and killed by an unknown assailant at approximately 6 p.m. on April 14 on County Road 443, roughly 2.5 miles from Hwy 191 south of Bluff. His wife and child were witness to the shooting.
The FBI believes the suspect and Montowine may have had no prior acquaintance. It is believed that the suspect exited a white, newer-model, four-door pickup truck with “4X4” on the side. He then shot Montowine, re-entered the vehicle, and left the scene.
The suspect is described as a male Native American, approximately 5'6" to 5'8" tall and of medium build, approximately 150 to 170 pounds. His hair was black and gray, worn short at the sides and “faded” at the top.
The suspect wore prescription transition lense glasses and was wearing a blue and brown plaid shirt.
Anyone with information concerning the suspect is asked to call the FBI Salt Lake City Field Office at 801-579-6189.
