APD officers were preparing to transfer Lymon into federal custody after a DNA swab was taken from him when, according to federal prosecutors, Lymon told the officers: “If you see that person or that cop’s family, tell them I’m so sorry, please. I honestly don’t remember what the f*** happened, I don’t remember. I hope he makes it.”
Webster was in the hospital as a result of his wounds and died a few days after Lymon is alleged to have made the apology.
In federal court documents, prosecutors argue that a jury should be able to hear about what Lymon said because Lymon volunteered the comment.
