KCRG/Gazette/Courier Staff Reports
EVANSDALE, Iowa - An attorney has advised Misty and Dan Morrissey against talking with the police or media according to Misty Morrissey's sister.
Tammy Brousseau, Misty's Morrissey's sister, said Thursday that the attorney also told the parents not to take any additional polygraph tests.
Misty and Dan are the parents of 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey. Lyric and her 8-year-old cousin Elizabeth Collins disappeared from Evansdale July 13. In recent days the couple's criminal background has become the focus of attention in both the local and national media.
Wednesday family members said officials interrogated Dan Morrissey the day before and accused him of killing the girls.
Up to this point law enforcement officials have said the family had cooperated with the investigation "100 percent."
