COPY-Investigators now focused on those familiar with Seven Bridges

Posted: Updated:
Investigators are asking the public for tips about anyone who is familiar with a remote wildlife area where two Iowa girls' bodies were found in December 2012.

Evansdale Police Chief Kent Smock said Tuesday the killer is likely very familiar with the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area, where hunters stumbled on the bodies of 10-year-old Lyric Cook and 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins.

The girls went missing in July 2012 when they were riding their bikes in Evansdale, 22 miles from the wildlife area.

Smock said the area is "extremely remote" and the killer may have hunted, camped or partied there in the past.

Smock acknowledged that thousands of people have been to the park but investigators will be careful not to falsely accuse anyone of involvement in the girls' deaths.
