Missing Actor Found Dead

Missing Actor Found Dead

(RepublicanView.org) – Police in Kansas have confirmed that actor Cole Brings Plenty, who went missing on March 31, has been found dead. Deputies discovered the 27-year-old’s body in a wooded area about 40 miles from Kansas City after responding to a call about an unoccupied vehicle. They did not provide details about the cause or manner of his death. Johnson County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson McKenzi Davis said investigations are ongoing. Authorities, however, reportedly do not suspect foul play.

The actor, best known for his role in the Yellowstone spin-off 1923, missed an appointment with his agent in late March, and his family subsequently reported his disappearance to police. The star vanished immediately after an alleged domestic violence incident in Kansas.

The Lawrence Kansas Police Department (LKPD) told reporters its officers responded to reports of a woman screaming, but by the time they arrived, the suspect had fled. Investigations identified Cole Brings Plenty as the suspect, and traffic cameras showed him leaving the city after the incident, heading southbound.

Family members subsequently posted an appeal for information on Instagram, noting that his phone was off, prompting more concern. The post by Mo Brings Plenty acknowledged there were suggestions that the actor went on the run but added, “There is no evidence to support this claim.”

Moses Brings Plenty, the actor’s uncle, who also starred in 1923, confirmed his death on social media with a message from Cole’s father. The father thanked well-wishers and asked for privacy so the family could grieve in peace.

Fellow actors and colleagues, including 1923 and Yellowstone stars, left warm tributes to Brings Plenty on social media. Wendy Moniz, who played Governor Lynelle Perry in 1923, said she was “so saddened,” while Hassie Harrison, who plays Laramie, wrote that she is “incredibly sorry.”

Cole Brings Plenty studied media at Haskell Indian Nations University in Kansas. He performed as Pete Plenty Clouds in 1923 and appeared in Into the Wild Frontier in 2022 and The Tall Tales of Jim Bridger in 2024.
