Myon Burrell is now a free man after his case made headlines earlier in the year when The Associated Press and American Public Media discovered new evidence that indicated serious errors in the police investigations that put him away, back in 2002.
Myon Burrell was 16 years of age in 2002 when an 11-year old girl was killed by a stray bullet while doing her homework on her dining table. He always claimed and maintained his innocence, and another man had confessed to being the shooter.
When Burrell walked out of the state prison dozens of supporters came out, braving the below-freezing temperatures, just to cheer and greet Burrell as he took his first steps of freedom.
You could see several people screaming, beating drums, jingling bells as he walked out, cheering, “Myon’s free!”
Burrell’s attorney, Perry Moriearty has now asked his fans to give home some privacy as he begins to adjust to his new life on the outside and thanks them for all of their agitations and support.
When Burrell asked the board for a pardon and commutation to time already served, he said in the exact words;
“this is not in any way, shape or form me trying to minimize the tragedy of the loss of Tysha Edwards”. “I come before you, a 34-year-old man who spent more than half of his life incarcerated for a crime I didn’t commit.”
Speaking to The Associated Press, Jimmie Edwards III, late Tyesha’s brother, has expressed his family’s disgust with the decision. He claims the justice system has failed his family.
Gov. Tim Walz, a member of the board, recommended the commuted sentence, saying science has found and the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that teenage minds work differently than those of adults, and that a life sentence for a teenager is too extreme.
Last week, an independent panel of national legal experts also recommended that Myon Burrell be released immediately after reviewing the all the facts and finding no hard evidences.
