Cole Brings Plenty, Actor on ‘Yellowstone’ Spinoff ‘1923,’ Found Dead


Cole Brings Plenty, the actor who played Pete Plenty Clouds on “Yellowstone” spinoff series “1923,” was found dead in Kansas a week after he was reported missing. He was 27.

Plenty was a suspect in a domestic violence case. According to the Johnson County, Kan. sheriff’s office, he was discovered Friday morning in a wooded area after a person noticed an unoccupied vehicle nearby. “The investigation is ongoing,” the sheriff’s statement said, adding that the medical examiner and investigators were on the scene.

The young Lakota actor had also appeared in “Into the Wild Frontier” and “The Tall Tales of Jim Bridger.” The Rapid City, S.D. Journal reported that he was a student at Haskell Indian Nations University.

Cole Brings Plenty’s uncle Mo Brings Plenty, who stars in “Yellowstone,” had posted several appeals on Instagram while the search for his nephew was under way. On Thursday, he wrote, “We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone in the community who has contributed their time, resources and support in helping us search for the missing person.”

A statement on Tuesday from the Lawrence Police Department said Cole Brings Plenty was allegedly involved in a domestic violence dispute Sunday at an apartment in Lawrence. “Officers responded to reports of a female screaming for help, but the suspect fled before officers arrived,” it reads. “The investigation identified Brings Plenty and traffic cameras showed him leaving the city immediately after the incident, traveling southbound on 59 Highway.”

The statement said, “We’ve identified him as the suspect, have probable cause for his arrest, and issued an alert to area agencies.”
