Yakima fishermen facing dilemma
Two Yakima Indian fugitives
hiding from federal marshals for
four months say they may come
out of hiding January 12th if a tri
bal court takes up their "salmon
scam" case as scheduled. Leroy
Yocash and Wilbur Slockish were
sentenced to federal prison terms
for their roles in a notorious fish
poaching case.
The 46-year-old Slockish says he
hasn't been trying to evade the
law He's merely been waiting to
have his day in an Indian court.
Slockish, age 42, says he has com
mitted no crime the crime was
committed against him. Neither
man testified in federal court in
1983 because of a plea bargain. So
they were stunned when Slockish
was sentenced to three years in pri
son and Yocash to two for illegal
fishing. They have been hiding on
the reservation in the homes of
Indian and non-Indian supporters.
Three others convicted in the
case are already in federal deten

Arthur was apprehended December

wide search.
Arthur is in custody in connection
with the deaths of Leah Alice
Tahkeal, and Martina Irene Reed,
30. The body of Tahkeal, who also
used the last name of Sam, was
found December 21 on a bed in
Arthur's house on the Umatilla
reservation. The next day, an inves

the FBI, Oregon State Police and
- Pendleton police resulted in finding
the body of Reed buried nearby.

Currently there is a lack of over
all integration of various state, fed
