New KCRG Story - Updated

There is be a story posted here featuring Casey and Noel speaking of their recent difficulties. We are out of the viewing area and viewed it over the Internet.

One detail that Noel forgot to mention was that, according to information that I have from a reputable source, Noel has been uncooperative with investigators in their quest. She has refused to be questioned by the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation unless her attorney is present. What do you think?

Please leave your comments.

See video and story archives at KCRG-TV here.

I just watched the clip on KCRG and listened to Noel and Casey say they want people to be nice to them and feel sorry for them. How do they expect people to feel sorry for them, when they obviously were not competent parents from the beginning, if they had DHS called on them 6 or more times! Whether,they actually committed the murder or not,they are responsible for not providing a safe,nurturing home for there children! I also have questioned from day one,how a mother who is grieving for her daughter, who is missing, can function and have her hair all fixed and your make-up on and not be totally consumed by worry and grief. And not shed a real tear on tv when you are being interviewed.I have had friends who have seen her the day after the funeral, swimming at the pool and who have seen her the bars bragging about being on tv and having her house on tv, I have also seen her riding around town on her moped. And to me I would not be able to function, I know, if something ever happened to my daughter! Good luck to you, Christie families, I pray there will be justice!!

I just saw it too. Do they not realize that it's not about them??? It's about Evelyn and justice for Evelyn. Not whether Noel is hugged by people anymore or whether their neighbors are nice to them. My other problem was the hard drive. If you only wanted to protect the pictures on it then why on earth would you take it and hide it from the police? I would think if you were truly innocent you let the police do their job to rule you out. Noel & Casey disgust me.

We are praying for you, Christie families, and for justice for Evelyn.

OK, I've just finished watching the clip and I don't really know what to make of it. I agree that they didn't provide a safe and secure home for little Evelyn but if they had nothing to do with her death then they should not have people calling them murderers and such.
I don't live locally so I haven't heard the rumors going around town(including the one that put Noel with one of the guys), but I would like to know why they(the local people) think that she or he was involved.
There must be a reason for everyone in town to think they were involved.
Goodness, it looks to me like even LE thinks they were involved.
Mr Christie, would you give your opinion on this? You know you think she's capable of something like this or do you think it's more likely that someone else committed this crime?
You don't have to share of course, I just thought I'd ask.

I have been following this story.. I am soooo sorry for your loss, your beautiful little granddaughter as well as your family has been in my prayers... justice will be served!! Jesus has taken her into his hands... please TRUST and find comfort in that.

Re: Ivoryflame's question. I think that any of us are capable of sin. Under the right circumstances we can do even extreme things which we later regret. The determination of whether or not Noel or anyone else did this is up to LE and a jury. That is their job.

Thank you for responding Mr Christie.

I think that it is a good idea for Noel to have her attorney present during questioning. It is never a good idea to wave your right to an attorney.
I know that Casey was giving an LDT...does anyone know if Noel was givin one as well?

Mr. Christie, You and Your family are going through more pain than I can I even fathom and as a Christian myself I appreciate your williness to withhold judgement.
I have known Randy Patrie for ten years. I find him to be obnoxios and far from intelligent in his choices but he is not a killer!!! I have seen him at girlscout events with his 9-year-old neice and she thinks the world of him. I truly feel that if the police in this town had even one shred of evidence against randy he would be locked up but apparently they dont.
I havent seen him anywhere near Noel except one night at a local bar where he happen to walk in and she was there "doing shots" and she and Casey verbaly attacked Randy.
I have seen Noel around town and at a church function and she didnt look "any worse for the wear". She doesnt seem to have lost any weight or sleep.
I want the murderer found but I truly feel in my heart and soul that it isnt Randy!!!!

Hi, I really feel for Evelyn's mother. As I am a mom my self. Why should people be looking down on her. You have to be proved guilty before you really are. So I say let the courts do there thing. And let the mom and step dad grieve. And please just because she and him had problems. Who doesn't. And if they claim they do they don't I say don't belive them. This world is sad. And things happen. And Maybe they need counseling for there mariatal problems. But thats ok that makes them normal. And please give them there other children back. Good luck.

re: sherape's comment...
I wouldn't be so quick to suspect him if he had an alibi. Also the LDT results made him look pretty bad as well as his comments afterwards...
Maybe there is no evidence yet that directly links him to this crime but in my own opinion, he is the person most likely responsible.
I cannot believe that Evelyn's mother had anything to do with this.

Christie Family,
I am so terribly sorry for the sensless lost of Evelyn. Take comfort knowing that she is a beutiful angel watching over you from heaven.
I and pray that the person(s) that did this are found and justice be served for your sweet little Evelyn.
I must say that I find it wrong and unchristian of people to bad mouth Noel and Casey. They are quite possibly totally innocent of this horrible crime. While they may not have been the greatest parents, it does not mean that they killed their daughter. It is never right for people to just ASSUME a person is guilty w/o any proof. If you were in their shoes, I'm sure you would be upset aswell.
For the folks who think it looks guilty of them to be out and about trying to go on with their lives... Please remember that people deal with their grief and anger in many different ways. Who are we to judge?
I am not here to say that Noel and Casey are innocent - for I was not there, so I surely do not know. But I do believe that it is up to LE and the justice system to investigate and prosecute, not the publics. Let them do their job before pointing fingers or spreading rumors... it is their job to find the guilty party, not ours.
Again to the family and friends of little Evelyn, I am so very sorry. You are in my prayers. God Bless you.

I've watched the clip many times and to me it sounded like "poor me, poor me" not once did they say "We need to find out who did this to Evelyn" That seemed kinda fishy to me.

Like I posted before, I am a family friend and I've known Noel for 7+ yrs. She has always been a very jealous, the fact is Evelyn's father got married 3 weeks before her disappearance, the first weekend her dad and step-mom were to get her after the wedding. Lindsey and Andy always spoke to and tried to get along with Noel, for Evey's sake. but when they told her that they had set a date after being together for 5 yrs. Noel was very hostile against them. Started to use Evey to get what she wanted out of Andy and Lindsey. Noel has never gotten over Andy (he's the only descent guy she's ever "dated")and she assumed that they would go for coustody soon after they wed. Noel has always had mental problems and I can see her thinking that if she could not have her that no one will. Lindsey had told me over and over again she does not want to take her away from Noel, she wants Evey to live in a safe, happy home.

If Noel and Casey are so innocent why did they hide their hard drive? Why are they being so uncooperative? I have a grandson in the same position as Evelyn. He spends alternate weeks with his dad. We have turned his father in DHS on several occassions and they just tell us to get a lawyer. I do not believe that Govenor Vilsak said DHS did nothing wrong in this case. If DHS would have given Evelyn to the Chritie's she would be here now would she not? When is Dhs going to wake up and smell the coffee. How many innocent children have to be hurt or die for them to do something?
