South Dakota attorney general wants to unseal Union County cold case documents

Posted: Updated:
The 1971 disappearance of two girls near Alcester has been ruled an accident, so South Dakota's attorney general wants to unseal three court documents from the now-closed criminal investigation.

Attorney General Marty Jackley said last week that Cheryl Miller and Pamella Jackson were killed when their Studebaker drove off a gravel road and landed in a creek.

His office filed a motion this week in Union County asking a judge to make public two search warrants and one affidavit supporting a search warrant.

The documents are from 2004 searches at the boyhood home of a man who was at one point charged with killing the girls. That case is now closed.

The new motion asks that the names and other information on three victims, two of them minors, be redacted.
