Fish and Wildlife Service tracker and an FBI agent, respectively, who try to solve a murder on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming.However, the medical examiner is unable to report that the victim's death was a homicide, therefore preventing Jane from calling in an additional FBI investigative unit.
The film was added to yet another 507 theaters and made .7 million the following weekend, and an estimated .2 million over the four-day Labor Day weekend, finishing in the 2nd spot at the U. The site's critical consensus reads, "Wind River lures viewers into a character-driven mystery with smart writing, a strong cast, and a skillfully rendered setting that delivers the bitter chill promised by its title." Writing for Rolling Stone, Peter Travers praised Sheridan's direction and the cast, giving the film 3/4 stars.
Cory then tells Jane about the death of his daughter three years before, whose body was discovered in the snow, following a party at his house while he and his wife had been out of town.
Jane, accompanied by the Tribal Police Chief, Ben, and additional officers, visit the drill site where they meet several of the security guards, who tell her they haven't seen Matt since he stormed off a few days ago following an argument with Natalie.
The next day, Jane learns from Natalie's father that his daughter was dating a new boyfriend, but he does not know the man's name or whereabouts.
The autopsy returns findings of blunt trauma and sexual violence, and confirms Cory's deduction that the girl had died from exposure, specifically pulmonary hemorrhage caused by rapid inhalation of sub-zero air.
