Evansdale, Iowa police say an autopsy has confirmed that two bodies found last week in a wildlife area are those of Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook. Police Chief Kent Smock says he received confirmation today from the Iowa State Medical Examiner's Office that the bodies were the two cousins, who had been missing since July 13. The full autopsy hasn't been released to police.
Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they went for a bike ride in the northeastern Iowa community and didn't return.
Hunters found their bodies last week in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area in Bremer County, about 25 miles from where they were last seen. Police closed the park while they searched for evidence connected to the case but now have reopened the area.

(AP) A slow-moving storm has dumped at least 16 inches of snow on parts of Minnesota, blanketing the Twin Cities, making some rural roads impassable and leading to at least one fatal crash. The heaviest snowfall the Twin Cities has experienced in two years led to the cancellation of dozens of flights at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Sunday and caused hundreds of traffic accidents around the state.
(AP) The state Department of Natural Resources is looking for volunteers to help researchers with a deer mortality study early next year. The DNR is in the third year of a five-year research project examining causes of deer deaths. Each year the agency has relied on volunteers to help gather data in the field.
