Sheriff Seeks Help in Solving Girl's Slaying 2 Years Later



By Becky Ogann

CHARLES CITY (AP) - Floyd County Sheriff Rick Lynch is still seeking help in the case of Evelyn Miller.

It's been two years since the five-year-old girl disappeared and was found dead along the Cedar River. No charges have ever been filed in her slaying.

Lynch says he believes someone knows something and he's willing to overlook their minor misdeeds -- if they come forward. The sheriff says he hopes the fear of being arrested for some minor crime isn't keeping someone from talking.

Miller disappeared from her Floyd apartment on July first, 2005. Her body was found in the river about a week later.

The child's death has been ruled a homicide, but details about how and exactly when she was killed have not been released.
