Last month!!! http://www.dailycamera.com/news/2008/jun/23/public-defender-cary-lacklen-remembered-ferocious-/ "Defense attorneys and prosecutors in Boulder and across the state have been left reeling by the death last weekend of Cary Lacklen, a lawyer who served for more than three decades in the public defenderâ€™s office." "Prosecutors who spent decades battling Lacklen in court praised him on Monday. Prosecutor Pete Maguire called Lacklen â€œa ferocious advocate.â€ Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy called him â€œincredibly honest and hard-working.â€ Just this spring, Lacy worked with Lacklen to help move John Engel, a 21-year-old man convicted of killing his adoptive mother and grandmother at age 14, out of prison and into a halfway house. â€œHe had a lot to do with the system coming together and working for John Engel to help make him a productive member of the community,â€ Lacy said." "Lacklen, 57, was found dead on Saturday in his Boulder home. Boulder County Coroner Tom Faure determined the cause of death was suicide." Thanks to Tez for the Heads-Up on this one!
