Construction work on a memorial to two Evansdale cousins could begin next week.

Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were kidnapped in July while biking around Meyers Lake. Their bodies were discovered five months later.  Police are yet to make an arrest in the case.

Evansdale City leaders approved plans for the memorial Saturday afternoon.

It will involve a memorial for the two girls and the renaming of the park at Meyers Lake to Angels Park in their honor.

All of the work is being funded with donations including a bank that donated $10,000 for a gazebo.
