Family Of SD AG’s Victim Demands Justice: ‘A Deer Doesn’t Look Like A Human’
The family of 55-year-old Joe Boever, who was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg on Saturday night, is demanding justice after the attorney general reported that he “hit a deer.”
The incident occurred as Ravnsborg was on his way home from a Republican Party event around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.
“A deer doesn’t look like a human,” said Boever’s cousin former state Rep. Nick Nemec (D-SD), according to the Dickinson Press. “My cousin got run over by the Attorney General.”
Nemec said that he went with his brother to identify Boever’s body on Sunday evening, about 20 hours after the incident occured.
“We’ve got questions why it took so long to contact us,” Nemec said. “Was our cousin laying dead on the highway for nearly a day while they were investigating? I don’t know.”
