AIM asked to help man charged with Aquash murder
Wednesday, September 24, 2003

American Indian Movement leader Vernon Bellecourt said the organization is interested in helping out the man charged with murdering AIM activist Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash.

Bellecourt said Arlo Looking Cloud's family has asked for AIM's assistance. He said several lawyers want to defend Looking Cloud.

Looking Cloud is charged with first-degree murder. Authorities allege he helped kill Aquash, who was found dead on the Pine Ridge Reservation in February 1976.

Looking Cloud is currently being represented by a public defender but the attorney has asked to be taken off the case. Looking Cloud's family says the attorney has not been helpful.
