Mother of Evansdale girl arrested on drug charges

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — The mother of one of two slain Iowa cousins has been arrested on drug charges.

The Des Moines Register reports ( ) authorities executed a search warrant Monday at a Waterloo home where 36-year-old Misty Cook-Morrissey was living. She faces several charges, including two counts of delivery of methamphetamine.

Police say 25-year Todd Michael Henriksen, who also lives in the home, was arrested and faces drug charges. Court records do not list attorneys for Morrissey or Henriksen.

Morrissey is the mother of Lyric Cook, who disappeared with her cousin, Elizabeth Collins, in Evansdale in July 2012. Their bodies were found in a remote, wooded area last December.

Lyric Cook’s father, Daniel Eugene Morrissey, was sentenced in September to between 30-90 years in prison on drug charges.
