A federal judge blocked a request for FBI records related to the slayings of two agents in South Dakota in 1975, Buffalo News reports.

Seeking the records is Leonard Peltier, who was arrested in connection with the killing of FBI agents Ronald Williams and Jack Coler.

Peltier wants to know why Frank DeLuca, the man he was with during the slayings, was never charged and remains free.

“We’re still going to press and push for the release of all documents related to the shadowy figure who used the name Frank Blackhorse,” Peltier’s attorney Michael Kuzma said this week, according to the Buffalo News.

Lawyers for Leonard Peltier, the American Indian activist convicted of killing two FBI agents in South Dakota in 1975, want answers to help clear their client, the Buffalo News reports.

They’ve filed a lawsuit in Buffalo federal court to force the release of 927 pages of FBI files.

As part of their effort, the lawyers are trying to find out why a second man who was apprehended in the shootings , Frank Blackhorse,  was never charged, the Buffalo News reported.

One of the attorneys, Michael Kuzma, thinks that Blackhorse — aka Frank Deluca—was an FBI operative posing as an Indian activist. He believes FBI documents will show that, the Buffalo News reported.

Peltier, 67, who is serving two life sentences, has maintained his innocence.
