    RSO Rules: It seems there is a legal consideration concerning whether we are allowed to bring information to Websleuths from the actual sex offender registry.

    It is illegal to use the sex offender register information to harass anyone. We would never condone this at Websleuths. It is not illegal (in my opinion) if when a child goes missing or is harmed we look at the sex offenders in the area and post their information, along with maps to show how close they live to the victim. In every case we have local people reading and posting here. Therefore we are within the guidelines using this info for local information. Again, we are not EVER going to even hint at harassing anyone on the sex offenders list. Any posting we do about a sex offender will always be within the law. If any of you have other questions about what you can and can't post please contact a mod and we will do our best to clear things up.

    "WATERLOO, Iowa — The father of one of two Iowa cousins found dead following their disappearance last summer is facing new drug charges.

    The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/14y10PI ) 36-year-old Daniel Morrissey of Waterloo is charged with trying to make methamphetamine and possessing simulated meth sometime between Dec. 1 and his Feb. 11 arrest for failing to comply with conditions of his pre-trial release"

    Thanks to princess pjs for reposting the great pics of seven bridges! . Thanks to TCK's for the nice map of the park boundaries. This is where I become confused. I have been looking at this map: http://www.recreationparks.net/IA/br...y-park-readlyn

    It portrays the fork in river, ie dump site as being east of the park border. Does anybody see what I am talking about? TIA.

    Yes, I see what you are talking about. I'm not sure what the deal is with this map, maybe just not as detailed?

    Just wanted to repost this bit of info. contained within above link.BBM

    "The bodies were found Wednesday afternoon in the wildlife area, a secluded space that receives regular visitors, Bremer County Sheriff Dewey Hildebrand said.

    Seven Bridges park is about 25 miles north of Evansdale, the Black Hawk County community where Lyric Cook-Morrissey, then 10, and Elizabeth Collins, then 8, were last seen on July 13. The Bremer County park has canoe access to the Wapsipinicon River, which winds through the 125-acre area"

    I understood that this park was so secluded and abandoned since the bridge was destroyed that not many people heard about it. This article and the one below make it sound like the park is more popular than was previously reported.

    Maybe some families visited there to picnic and/or play in or near the water since the level was so low and less dangerous. Canoers or kayakers on the river may have taken a break along the beach like areas. There may be someone who may have ventured near the site and were turned off because of the odor but never investigated it.

    If so, I would hope that they have now reported it because this would pinpoint when the girls were there, but unless the story stays in the news, out of town visitors may not be aware of where the girls were even found.

    The wildlife area is popular with hunters in the fall, fishers in the summer and mushroom hunters in the spring, said Frank Frederick, director of the Bremer County Conservation Board.

    Not as many people fished in the area this summer because of low water levels,

    Yeah I'm not sure it was quite as abandoned as some have made it out to be. On the Find Lyric and Elizabth Facebook page there was a lady that said she camped there this summer, there were two other people who said they searched there for the girls. So it's not like 7bridges was completely overlooked by the locals during the searches.

    That picture of the recovery location makes me SO unbearably sad, and scared.

    Ditto, that picture and the one of the fence where the bikes were found.
    Still hard to think someone could so coldly snuff out the life of two little girls on a summer's day.

    Ty for link. I can't access it for some reason though that is almost certainly due to my PC rather than the link.

    Waterloo Memorial isn't the same church as the celebration of life service, is it?

    I'm also wondering if "burial" indicates that remains (even if in form of ashes) are to be interred? I'm only curious because I had thought they might scatter Elizabeth's ashes over the Meyers lake island.

    Thanks! Your last point is important to note as only a frequent fisherman of the Wapsipinicon River might know that...or not. I wonder if someone out there is wondering about their fishing buddy?
