    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.

    Do not sleuth individuals who have not been mentioned in MSM either as persons of interest or as suspects by LE.
    Choose the links you post wisely; don't link to sites which feature bizarre speculation, etc.

    Remember: you can disagree with a post and address it, but you do NOT attack the poster.

    No one has been named by LE or MSM as a POI or suspect in this case.
    The parents, whatever you may personally think about them, have not been named.
    That means that they, and their families, their neighbors, and their friends and "associates," are not to be sleuthed or badmouthed.

    fyi: Any rules that are changed in other cases are considered on a case by case basis by administration. The above are the rules to discuss THIS case.

    I haven't stayed up to date on this case but I see that posters are looking for more pictures of where the girls were found. I shared these a while back when they were first found but thought I'd repost them in case they help with what everyone is looking for now. They are just different views of the exact location they were found from different angles and different times of the year. I hope they help with the research that's going on now in the case.

    There will be a Memorial Ride & Drive for Lyric and Lizzie on July 13th. Half of the proceeds will go to the memorial and half will go to Cedar Valley Crimestoppers.

    According to a new article on KWWL.com, the concert has raised an initial total of $31,100. There is now an auction of band memorbilia.

    Thanks.

    I always find it helpful to include a link when I quote.

    Thank you for posting a direct link. I don't know how to do that & figure someone else here would always know how to do it (and hope they wouldn't mind).

    I don't know if it was posted or not but Dan was granted a furlough to attend Lyric's funeral. It's on his court dockets. My apologies if it's a repeat.

    I hope that works if not google "Iowa Courts Online". Dan's most current dockets say Questionnaires in the title.

    Jason has court 4/30.

    Its been awhile since I last posted, but I do read. Been trying to catch up. I've been reading the different theories that everyone has posted and the one about the kids pouring their juice and looking out the window and see someone they wanted to catch up with brought back a lot of memories for me as a child. I remember taking off out the door anytime we heard or saw the Ice Cream Truck or Van and I have often wondered if Evansdale had some sort of Ice Cream Van that drove around the neighborhoods selling Ice Cream Cones and Frosty Treats in the summer. I remember as a child chasing down the Ice Cream man and every kid on the block would run after it as well.

    Now my thoughts about the memorial garden...why don't they have the school kids do a school project and plant perennials from seeds in school to offset the cost of plants and flowers? I know when my sister put in her flower garden in her backyard she paid few thousands of dollars to have a pond put in and paths and lots of different perennials and every year she would have to dig up and divide some of those flowers and give them away because the flowers would get out of control if she didn't. I'm sure there are a lot of people in Evansdale that have flower gardens that they could share and donate the memorial park. It wouldn't hardly cost a dime to do a butterfly garden.

    wow the ice cream truck- good thought...any local know if they have that??

    and great idea on the gardening- a sharing of what people already have and need thinned out- that would really give it a sense of community, a little of this and that , to make something nice & special

    I believe there is a plan for students and scouts to participate in planting bulbs at the memorial each year:

    I like your idea of people donating plants and flowers to the memorial.

    Personally I think they ought to not be thinking of being dependent on annual projects...I have seen 'memorial plots' what have you, where interest waned as time went by. If they are going to do this, they should concentrate on simplicity and plant material, especially natives, that doesn't require a lot of maintenance. I bet there is a master gardener program through the county extension service that could bring 'em. imho, into reality & guide them in making proper selections. I just hope some landscaping/nursery hasn't got them all hyped up on over doing it. I have been in the biz and it is easy to let projects mushroom...

    Planting your own yard is a lot different than planting in public areas.

    Well if they knew what kind of plants and flowers they were going to plant on the island they could put up fliers saying what they needed and then people could donate their plants and flowers. Also around here people will even give up trees and beings Drew has a tree service I'm sure if someone had a tree or two that they wanted removed from their yard he could dig the tree out and replant it on the island if it is the sort of tree they are looking for.

    Thanks for posting. I posted in the way back machine, a personal story regarding a HS acquaintance of my son-now 32. No one was aware of his tendencies. This kid worked summers selling ice cream to kids and was arrested for molesting kids. Everyone was shocked. Beware anyone that works with children. Sports, Karate, dancing............everything.

    Makes me very sad.

    If that memorial takes years to complete, there is going to be some very upset residents who live on that lake. I should say more upset than they already are.
