Sioux Falls Murder Victim Was Also Homeless
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Police say the victim in a Sioux Falls murder was a homeless acquaintance of the two homeless men suspected in his death.

Forty-five-year-old Robert Thunderhawk was beat to death with a shovel Thursday night in a wooded area in northeast Sioux Falls.

Forty-three-year-old Eugene Martin is charged with first degree murder.  Fifty-two-year-old Clint Cottonwood is charged with simple assault. 

Police received a call about a body around 6:45 p.m. Thursday and searched a wooded area near East 1st Street and Blauvelt Avenue for several hours.  That's where they found Thunderhawk's body, which is an area neighbors say is frequented by homeless people.
