During the winter on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, expert tracker and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agent Cory Lambert discovers the frozen body of 18-year-old Natalie Hanson in the snow. Her body is barefoot, without proper winter attire, miles from any building, and has a blood-stained forehead and groin. FBI Special Agent Jane Banner arrives to investigate a possible homicide, because the FBI has jurisdiction over murder cases on reservations. The next day, Banner learns from Natalie’s father, Martin, that his daughter was dating a new boyfriend, but he does not know the man’s name or where he lives. The autopsy shows blunt trauma and sexual violence and confirms Lambert’s deduction that the girl died from exposure. She suffered pulmonary hemorrhage caused by rapid inhalation of sub-zero air. However, the medical examiner is unable to confirm the death as a homicide, and Agent Banner cannot get additional help from FBI investigators.Wind River 2017 Movie Download.
Lambert discovers that Natalie’s “new boyfriend” was Matt Rayburn, who works security at a nearby oil drilling site. The next day, Matt’s body is discovered, nude and already ravaged by scavenging wildlife. Lambert tells Agent Banner about his own daughter’s death three years earlier. Her body was discovered in the snow, following a party at their house while he and his wife were away. No one was charged in her death.
Banner, accompanied by Tribal Police Chief Ben Shoyo and two county police officers, visit the drill site where they are met by several of the company’s security guards. They claim that Matt had stormed off a few days ago, following an argument with Natalie, and has not been seen since. One guard mentions that they heard about Natalie’s body being found by monitoring law enforcement radio channels.
