IOWA CITY - During the press conference regarding the Sueppel family, investigators said there was no sign drugs played a role in the murders. When Steven Sueppel was first indicted for money laundering and embezzlement, he told investigators he spent some of the money on cocaine.

However, authorities said Tuesday that Sueppel later recanted his story of using the money for drugs.

Investigators also said they never found evidence of illegal drugs in the Sueppel house back when the indictments were first issued, nor during the search after the murders.
