Dr. Reynolds killed George Bowlegs.  Reynolds was in turn killed by three unnamed Zunis because he had defiled their sacred traditions.

Reynolds was a reknowned researcher and anthropologist who was committing the very serious crime of planting artifacts at an archaological site to support one of his theories.  Ernesto Cata, a young friend of Bowlegs, stole some evidence from Reynolds' truck without realizing its significance, and passed part of it on to Bowlegs.  Reynolds killed Cata and Bowlegs to keep the evidence, which would incriminate him and ruin his reputation, from being exposed.
