On behalf of the Yeagley family, I am sorry to inform you that David passed away early yesterday morning, March 11, 2014.
Yeagley at one point threatened to sue Indianz.Com for allegedly libelous and inflammatory postings about his controversial views. He was particularly upset when comments about his opposition to inter-racial relationships became public. He had made the comments at an anti-Indian conference in Washington, D.C.
Yeagley also engaged in a war of words with several message board users who questioned whether he was legitimately enrolled in the Comanche Nation and whether his ancestors were actually Comanche. His web site was named for Bad Eagle, whom he claimed was his great-great-grandfather.
A memorial service is taking place this afternoon in Oklahoma City, according to an obituary.
