In December 2020, Michael Burciaga, 36, stabbed his pregnant girlfriend to death at her home in the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribal reservation. The Pyramid Lake Paiute is a U.S. Indian reservation in Nixon, northeast of Reno, Nevada.

An article in AP News states that the victim’s 15-year-old daughter, one of the three children who were at home during the crime, called the police to report about the murder suspect. Reportedly, hours after harming himself, Burciaga returned to the crime scene. Pyramid Lake tribal police were still investigating when the suspect allegedly confessed to the killing.
