First Look At Evidence Taken From Lykken Farm In 2004 Search

April 24, 2014, 9:49 AM by Ben Dunsmoor

First Look At Evidence Taken From Lykken Farm In 2004 Search

For the first time, we’re getting a look at the items that were taken from the Lykken farm in Union County a decade ago.

The Lykken farm was searched in August of 2004 as South Dakota investigators looked for clues in connection to the 1971 disappearance of Sherri Miller and Pam Jackson. Several items were taken from Kerwyn Lykken’s Alcester farm as potential evidence in the disappearance.

Now that the cold case is closed, investigators returned the items that were seized during the search of the farm in 2004 and Kerwyn Lykken is showing them to KELOLAND News for the first time on Thursday.

Lykken’s brother, David, was charged three years after the search with murdering the two girls, but those charges were later dismissed because the state’s main witness was caught lying about the case.

Last week, the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office announced that Miller and Jackson disappeared in May of 1971 after a car crash that caused their Studebaker to plunge into Brule Creek. The Studebaker was discovered last fall, a discovery that cleared the Lykkens of involvement in the case.

KELOLAND News will have coverage throughout the day on, First@4, KELOLAND News at 5 and 6, and in the Eye on KELOLAND at 10 p.m. Thursday.
