Five months after the disappearance of 5-year-old Evelyn Miller, the Floyd County Attorney is reminding the public of a $5,000 reward to help find her killer.
The Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Fund Foundation of Modesto, Calif., posted the reward in mid-July for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Evelyns death.
Thats still out there, Floyd County Attorney Marilyn Dettmer said Thursday.
She said information does not have to have been attained at the time of the murder.
Theres always conversations going on and people maybe gained information more recently, Dettmer said.
Evelyn Miller was reported missing from the rural Floyd apartment she shared with her mother, mothers fiance and two toddler brothers early on July 1. Her body was found two miles from her home in the Cedar River on July 6.
Authorities say she was murdered, but have not released how or when she was killed. No arrests have been made in the case.
Evelyns mothers fiance, Casey Frederiksen, 26, of Charles City, was indicted by a federal jury last month on two counts of possession of child pornography and 12 counts of receipt of child pornography. He is being held in Linn County Jail awaiting trial.
Dettmer said the federal charges are separate, but related to the murder investigation. The state homicide investigation, she said, is ongoing and remains intense.
The Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Fund Foundation was established by Francis and Carole Carrington to help families of homicide victims. Their daughter and two other women were found murdered in Yosemite National Park in February 1999. Investigators working the homicide received their first break in the case after the Carringtons posted a reward.
Although we now live in the Des Moines area, it is very hard for us to believe that the local law enforcement in Floyd County has been unable to solve this case.
Marilyn Dettmer said,Theres always conversations going on and people maybe gained information more recently.
We remain hopeful that the citizens of Floyd County and Charles City will not stand by and see this case forgotten and will bring this information to law enforcement for justice to be served and a resolution to happen for the families involved.
Please, even if you have what seems to be to you a small bit of information, let the County Attorney know about it. It looks to us, that if no one speaks up, the community will hang its head in shame and say, "too bad." The conscience of the community will forever be in doubt. We believe that Charles City is better place than that.
