(Evansdale) Law Enforcement Officials Thursday afternoon were able to confirm what was suspected Wednesday. The bodies found in a wooded area of Bremer County Wednesday were those of eight-year-old Elizabeth Collins and ten-year-old Lyric Cook.
Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Department Captain Rick Abben says the State Medical Examiner has yet to make a positive I-D.
“We have no one else that is missing in this area and we have two bodies that were smaller in stature, so we have nothing else to think at this point,” stated Abben
Hunters found the bodies in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area which is a park along the Wapsipinicon River. The location is about 25-miles from Evansdale where the girls were last seen alive on July 13.
Chief Abben says there is still a $150,000 reward available for information leading for information leading to an arrest of those responsible for the crime.
