ROLLER DERBY: Event To Honor Memory of Girls

It’s been over a year since the disappearance of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.

The girls were last seen at Meyers Lake in Evansdale on July 13, 2012.  Their bodies were found five months later in a Bremer County Park.

Police still have not named a suspect or released the girls’ cause of death.

A roller derby fundraiser will be held Saturday night in memory of the girls.

Players say roller derby is a bit like rolling red rover.  Players skate around the track and try to break through other clumps of skaters to score points.

One participant said hosting the benefit seemed like the right thing to do.

“It’s a big thing that you know everybody wants to be supportive of and you know, help find whoever did that to the poor girls and you know that we don’t want that to happen to anybody else,” said team member Nicole Arntz.

The roller derby event will be held at McElroy Auditorium in Waterloo.

One dollar from each ticket sold will go to Angels Park.
