KWWL Subpoened for Interview Footage in Search for Missing Evansdale Cousins
Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook-Morrissey, 10, have been missing since July 13.
The Black Hawk County Attorney's office has issued a subpoena to TV news station KWWL, asking for any raw, unedited video interviews with family members of missing Evansdale cousins Elizabeth Collins, 8, and Lyric Cook-Morrissey, 10.
The request is for footage of interviews with Lyric Cook-Morrissey's mother Misty Cook-Morrissey or grandmother Wylma Cook that took place on July 19 or July 20.
KWWL interviewed the two women a day after they said they had obtained an attorney due to what they described as harsh interrogation by authorities investigating the case, who reportedly accused them of kidnapping the girls. At the time, they said they would not speak with the authorities. Since then, however, an FBI spokesperson has said investigators are now recieving full cooperation from the family members.
KWWL reported it would fully comply with the subpoena.
The girls have been missing since July 13.
A $50,000 award has been offered for anyone who can provide information leading to the recovery of the cousins.
Anyone with any information should call the tip line at (319) 232-6682.
