Website Focuses On Solving Cold Case

By  | 

Police in Evansdale, Iowa have launched a new website to provide a clearinghouse for information about the unsolved abduction and killing of two girls in 2012.

Ten-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey and her 8-year-old cousin Elizabeth Collins disappeared in Evansdale after they left for a bike ride in July 2012. Their bodies were found in December 2012 in a wildlife refuge in Bremer County. No arrests have been made in their deaths.

The website,, launched Thursday, displays information about likely characteristics of the cousins' kidnapper. Investigators believe the abductor is from the area and chose the wildlife refuge because it was secluded.

A $150,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
