Five years ago today: Hunters found the bodies of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins

Posted: Updated:

Today marks five years since eastern Iowa hunters found the bodies of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins. The girls were reported missing in July of 2012. The cousins were found at Seven Bridges Park in Bremer County. 

Investigators say they continue to make the case a top priority.

Early on in the investigation of the disappearance of the cousins, Lyric’s parents spoke to KWWL a handful of times. We haven’t heard from Dan or Misty Morrissey in nearly four years. But recently, Dan has decided to share his story and speak exclusively to KWWL.

A year and a half after Lyric and Elizabeth went missing, Lyric's father Dan Morrisey was sentenced to 90 years for multiple , unrelated drug charges.
