Services have been scheduled for the second Evansdale cousin. The celebration of life for Lyric Cook will be held at Heartland Vineyard Church in Cedar Falls on Saturday.
Channel 13 had planned to cover Lyric’s service in the same manner as we covered her cousin Elizabeth Collins’, but the church issued a statement to media outlets Thursday asking them to stay away.
In an email that went out to media outlets across the state the church said the family has asked that no media be on the premises for the event.
They say the service is still open to the public and will take place from 2-5:30 p.m. Saturday, December 29.
Lyric and Elizabeth disappeared while riding their bikes near Meyers Lake in Evansdale in July. Their bodies were discovered about 25 miles north of Evansdale in Seven Bridges Park in Bremer County in December.
The investigation into how the girls died is still on-going.
No arrests have been made in the case.
