Lykken’s Attorney Reacts

February 22, 2008, 11:48 AM by Lou Raguse

Lykken’s Attorney Reacts
The murder charges in a 1971 cold case have been dismissed. 

Fifty-three-year-old inmate David Lykken was accused of killing Pam Jackson and Sherri Miller, but the attorney general's office now admits the star witness was lying. 

It turns out the voice investigators have on tape admitting to the killings of the two girls was not David Lykken's.
Officials say Jailhouse informant Aloysius Black Crow has been lying about the recording all along. Lykken's lawyers say they could tell from the beginning that the voice on the tape was a different inmate. 

In their investigation, they learned it a was a convicted killer from Florida, who was going along with the lie just to make a little money. In a hearing as late as last month, Black Crow testified it was Lykken. 

Lykken’s Attorney, Mike Butler says, “One of the reasons we wanted Black Crow to testify under oath is I wanted that man with his hand up, committing perjury. Which is precisely what he did.” 

Butler says Black Crow has now admitted he was lying. Butler wants Black Crow charged with perjury. And he believes the state owes the Lykken family an apology. 

In our interview this morning, Lykken's lawyers told us a lot more about the state's case against Lykken. But the Attorney General's office says Black Crow was not the only piece of evidence against Lykken, so charges could be brought against him again in the future. 

We’ll have more later today on KELOLAND.com and News.
