#RayRobinson: The Doe Network: Case File 1722DMSD

Ray Robinson disappeared around the end of April 1973 at the American Indian Movement AIM takeover of the Pine Ridge reservation village of Wounded Knee. Ray had deep ties to the civil rights movement and participated with many groups, which is what led him to South Dakota. Robinson traveled to South Dakota from Alabama in April 1973. This was during the 71-day occupation of Wounded Knee by AIM members and supporters that included the exchange of gunfire with federal agents who surrounded the village. His body never was found and little is known about what happened. His wife, Cheryl Robinson said she filed a missing person’s report with the FBI, traveled to Rapid City in October 1974, and then to AIM headquarters in St. Paul, MN. but was unable to get information about her husband. She believes Ray was killed between April 20-23, 1973. She reports that reliable sources told her that Ray had been shot, killed, and buried at Wounded Knee. Other people who were present inside Wounded Knee during the time say Ray was shot in the leg. Two Native Americans were confirmed to have died and rumors of other deaths persist. It is reported that FBI documents that are now public suggest people were buried at Wounded Knee during this time. This includes a memo from May 17,1973 which records an Interior Department official “observed several fresh graves” at Wounded Knee. It is unknown in which state Ray’s widow filed her missing persons report with the FBI.
