Who were the other parents (of the 2 missing girls)?


What were there names? I wanted to check if anything was ever found regarding their deaths.

I live in Iowa and followed this case closely as it happened. There were some suspicious things surrounding the parents in this case. I'm not saying they did it or even wanted it to happen, but from what I understand, these girls were possibly collateral damage to drug activity that the parents may have been involved in. I don't know for sure, but I have a belief about it and when I saw her parents on the screen, it bothered me quite a bit.

I remember going back to Waterloo, IA, which is right next door to Evansdale, in the fall of 2012, shortly after the girls were reported missing. I recall that in Waterloo, almost all the businesses had fliers up about them.

It also seemed a very surprising abduction, given that it supposedly happened in broad daylight. It is rather sad that the only time the news ever comes to that section of Northeastern Iowa, it's to report on bad stuff, be it kidnappings, heavy flooding, etc. There was even word about one guy who on his death bed a few years ago, confessed to killing a couple in Waterloo, IA, back in 1981.

"Thanks, guys." "So long, partner."

Thanks for the info. I wanted to look them up too because I had a weird feeling about the mom. The Dad seemed normal but I felt like the mom was acting the whole time. As if she already knew what happened but was playing the part of a parent with a missing child. Who knows, maybe she was just uncomfortable in front of a camera, but I totally got a Casey Anthony vibe from her.
