Synopsis: A fan of Dances With Wolves, Bode moved to South Dakota from Idaho, ostensibly in pursuit of the unpopulated landscape and proximity to Lakota traditions. Prior to acquiring an acreage in western South Dakota, Bode lived in California. An American Legion baseball player, Bode went on to play for the San Francisco Giants in their farm system but quit after two years, probably due to a conflict with his principles, says his sister Rojean Nunnally.

Bode was drafted into the Vietnam War. Nunnally says her brother did not agree with the United States’ reasons for entering the war and went AWOL, for which he served a year’s prison sentence. Nunnally says the things that happened to Bode in prison “broke him.”

Art and painting helped Bode cope. In South Dakota, Bode and his wife Renee kept many horses and other animals. According to neighbors, Bode’s ability to care for himself and his animals nose-dived after his wife’s death. Mental health advocates were called and Bode was placed in involuntary treatment.
