Suspect In 2022 Rapid City Double Murder Finally Caught


      Authorities in South Dakota say a fugitive sought for more than a year and a half for an August 2022 double murder at a Rapid City apartment is finally in custody. 

     22-year old Dillon Wilson was arrested Friday in Sioux Falls by the U-S Marshals Service, the Dakota Territory Fugitive Task Force, and the Sioux Falls Police Department on warrant for 2 counts of 1st-Degree Murder

      Authorities say the arrest was made possible through cooperation by local, state, federal, and Rosebud Sioux tribal law enforcement agencies.

      Wilson is the fifth person arrested in the deaths of Joseph Standing Bear and Petan Milk. The other four were arrested within days of the murders and remain in custody awaiting trial. 

      Court documents show that Wilson, who has a criminal history that includes drugs and violence, had been released from jail just days before the killings.

        Releases at the time listed Wilson as a “person of interest” and one of 3 who were in tribal custody on the Rosebud reservation. The releases said South Dakota was working on extradicting all 3, but it later turned out Wilson was not in custody.

        Rosebud Sioux tribal law enforcement officials have indicated they believe that Wilson was on the reservation most of the time he was a fugitive.
