Reports: Scammers are “taking advantage of a tragedy” going door to door seeking money for slain cousins

EVANSDALE- The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office has been notified of possible scammers going door-to-door seeking funds from unsuspecting folks for two young girls who were killed about a year ago.

The scammers may be operating at this time in unspecified parts of Black Hawk county, possibly in Evansdale, where Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook were last seen a year ago and later found dead. Authorities are still investigating their deaths.

According to the Associated Press, “an acquaintance of Elizabeth’s mother, Heather Collins, told her about two boys who had knocked on her door Sunday. Heather Collins soon notified the county sheriff’s office. Collins told Waterloo television station KWWL the scammers are “taking advantage of a tragedy.”

The Associated Press said that a Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Captain advised people to make donations later, after checking out the solicitors.

Lyric Morrisey,10 and Elizabeth Collins, 8 were reported missing in 2012.  Authorities warn citizens to be mindful when considering donations from door-to-door solicitors.
