Evansdale police launch website for slain cousins
EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) Evansdale police have launched a new website to provide a clearinghouse of information about the unsolved abduction and killing of two young cousins in 2012.
Ten-year-old Lyric Cook 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 rural wildlife refuge in Bremer County.
No arrests have been made in their deaths.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the website was launched Thursday. It 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 set for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
