County Attorney Freeman kicks Myon Burrell matter back to Sen. Klobuchar
March 10, 2020
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman on Monday called for Sen. Amy Klobuchar to request a federal investigation into a years-old murder case that dogged her in the final days of her presidential bid, pushing back on her request for him to seek an outside review.
The move comes days after Klobuchar urged Freeman, her successor, to call for an independent review of the case against Myon Burrell, who was convicted in the 2002 killing of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards. Klobuchar did not specify what agency she thought should look into the matter.
