The Road to Execution – Update April 10, 2022

Share this

The past two weeks there has been forward motion in justice for Vicki Lynne after months of delays.

On Tuesday, April 5th the Arizona Supreme Court denied the defenses request to delay the Motion to Set Briefing Schedule for the Motion for the Warrant of Execution. I’ll attach the Courts ruling below, it’s short, sweet and to the point. We anticipate that the Court will conference on May 3rd, 2022. Assuming there are no delays, the Warrant of Execution could be carried out 35 calendar days from that date.

We have been in direct communications with both the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the Arizona Department of Corrections on what lies ahead. Although we anticipate the defense will do everything it can to stop the wheels, we are fully confident that “this” time will be it.

We are aware that there is one execution ahead of ours, that was set this past week as well.

On behalf of my parents and family, we ask that you wrap us in love and prayers. It’s a roller coaster of emotions, and a lot to process and will need your support as we navigate these waters.

To our friends in the media, we ask that respect our privacy until a date has been set. At that time, my parents will grant interviews, we do have a list of those of you who have patiently waited and been so respectful to us through this process. We will welcome updated contact information for you if that has changed since our last communications.

It’s been 37 years, 6 months and 24 days since the murder of our beautiful girl. Never in a million years would we have guessed justice would take this long, maybe the devil is finally ready for him.
