The funeral for one of two murdered Iowa girls who'd been missing for five months was held Saturday in Cedar Falls.

Mourners at Heartland Vineyard Church said their final goodbyes to Lyric Cook-Morrissey. She was 10 and her cousin Elizabeth Collins 8 when they were abducted July 13th while bike riding in Evansdale. Their bodies were found December 5th in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area about 25 miles away.

Evansdale residents said Lyric's funeral provided some peace for the town, but real closure hinges on finding whoever killed the girls. Police have interviewed several "persons of interest," though no arrests have been made.

A memorial service for Elizabeth was held December 13th.
