Nelson McNair

This week's MONTANA MURDER MYSTERIES explores the 1995 death of a Livingston teen found floating in the Yellowstone River.

Thomas Nelson McNair was born December 2, 1976. By the time he reached his teens, he was touting long blond hair that at one point was styled into a large Mohawk. Friends and family describe him as intelligent, artistic, and an “off-the-couch athlete.”

In March of 1995, Nelson went missing. His family and friends searched for him for more than a month. Then in May, Nelson’s body was discovered by several fishermen on the Yellowstone River near the Sheep Mountain Fishing Access 14 miles East of Livingston.

Nearly 25 years later, Nelson’s manner of death is still listed as “undetermined.” Listen to part one of our report below:
