Family of wrongly accused man asks for apology after officials close SD cold case

The family of David Lykken wants an apology.  In 2004, Lykken was named a person of interest in the 1971 disappearance of Vermillion teens Cheryl Miller and Pamella Jackson.  Authorities searched the Lykken family farm and dug for the car the girls had been driving.  They found nothing, but Lykken, who was in prison for kidnapping, assault, rape and burglary in a separate case, was charged with murdering the teens.  Those charges were later dropped.  The car was found in a creek last year with the girls' remains inside.  Authorities announced this week that their deaths were accidental.
