Workers making progress on Evansdale memorial

EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) — Workers are making progress on a Evansdale memorial to two young cousins who were abducted last summer and later found dead.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/18Ojq0B ) workers have constructed two of four gazebos as well as a large shelter on an island at Meyers Lake.

The memorial is dedicated to 10-year-old Lyric Cook and 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins, whose bikes were found at the lake in July 2012. Their bodies were found December.

Despite rain, workers installed the metal roof on the shelter Friday and crews were waiting for materials to complete the roofs on two gazebos. Work remains on the paths leading to the gazebos.

Chris Webb, who is overseeing construction, says people who stop by appreciate the memorial. He calls it “something positive happening out of something horrible.”
