WATERLOO (KWWL) -
A local family is spending Halloween giving candy to kids with a very special message.
Someone killed Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins in 2012.
Their killer still has not been found.
On Friday, Elizabeth's parents passed out candy to kids with sticker on each piece, asking justice for the two girls.
The Collins' family passed out candy at Crossroads Mall in Waterloo.
Heather Collins says Elizabeth always used to hand out candy at their fall parties, it was her favorite thing to do.
Heather says passing out candy with a picture of her daughter's face was bittersweet, but something Heather said needed to be done.
In a sea of polyester and plastic, minions and little kitty cats, she passed out candy in the true Halloween spirit.
"We love to see kids happy," said Collins.
Collins placed a sticker on each piece of candy -- about 3000 pieces -- calling for justice for Lyric and Elizabeth.
"It's great to see all these kids, but she's not one of them, so it's kind of hard," said Collins.
Elizabeth would have been 12 years old for this Halloween.
"I had someone say to me, 'you mean the case hasn't been solved?' I said no, it still hasn't been solved," said Collins.
But the Collins family won't give up until it is solved, one sticker at a time.
The Collins' family cares about every family going through similar situations, so along with stickers for the girls, they posted fliers for Moe Sed.
Moe Sed is the Waterloo teen who went missing a week ago Thursday, and he still hasn't been found.
If you know the whereabouts of Sed, or have any information about the girls' killer, call police immediately.
Leslie Hospitality owner Edwin Leslie says he doesn't have anything to hide, and to prove it he invited the public to view all of the documents, emails, agreements, and financial statements related to the deal at a public meeting this morning.
