This venue will help celebrate the wonder that she was and also post up-to-date information on the wait for justice.

8/9/2005 Why they left Grandmother’s House
It has been over a month since this case began. We believe that the County Attorney is doing her very best to resolve and prosecute this case. The Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation and FBI and local LE have been working very hard on this case.
I would just like to have some reassurance that things are moving forward. What do you think?

8/08/2005The sister of Noel Miller's fiancé thinks the couple's lifestyle was a factor in the girl's disappearance. Casey's sister says it all

Brandi could not have said it better. I still have some questions.

The article stated, "Records show Charles City police and Floyd County sheriffs deputies have had dozens of contacts with the couple over the past four years. Several calls were for domestic violence; the couple also phoned in disturbances by friends and relatives, and reported they'd been the victim of thefts.

"How come DHS did not receive the information about the police and sheriff's calls? Isn't there a law or regulation requiring that the DHS (and non-custodial parent) be informed when police or another law enforcement agency has been called to the residence of a child under their care? If there is not it should be on the next legislative agenda. This would strengthen both the power of DHS and the non-custodial parent to promptly remove children in danger from an unfit home, no matter how "loving" it is.

Tragically, our family was not informed of the full extent of the danger that Evey was in.
