'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America
Independent voices from the TWT Communities
Five months after two young cousins vanished while riding their bikes, residents of the northeast Iowa community where they were last seen are anxiously waiting to hear whether two bodies found by hunters are those of the missing girls.
"These were just innocent children. These girls should have been left alone. They should be home safe in their beds, and it's only a coward who would have done something like this," she said after the vigil.
Barb Collins, a machinist who grew up in Evansdale and helped lead the group in prayer, said the community was grieving.
