DRUG ARREST: Slain Child’s Mom Back In Jail
The mother of one of the eastern Iowa girls who was kidnapped in 2012 and found dead months later has been arrested again.
Misty Morrissey’s latest arrest came Monday for violating her pre-trial release.
The 37-year-old was arrested in November, 2013 in West Union after a search warrant discovered Morrissey allegedly had methamphetamine and marijuana in her home. Officers also located a large amount of cash, digital scales, packaging, and other evidence of a distribution operation.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says Morrissey’s pre-trial release was revoked for several violations including use of controlled substances.
Morrissey is being held in the Fayette County Jail on a no bond warrant. Charges are still pending from her November arrest.
