EVANSDALE (KWWL) -
Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson said Tuesday night that leads are still being investigated into the murders of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins.
Their bodies were found in December after they went missing last July.
"2012 was a tough, tough year for us," said Thompson during a two-hour town hall meeting in Evansdale.
In his 50th town hall meeting as Black Hawk County Sheriff, Thompson told a group of eight people that there are five full-time investigators still working on the girls' murder case.
When asked if a killer was still on the loose, Thompson refused to comment.
Thompson said Tuesday's meeting was not about the Evansdale cousins, rather it was to "encourage open dialogue" with his constituents with matters concerning Black Hawk County residents.
When one of the eight people in attendance asked about the girls' murder investigation, Thompson said it's important for people to remember that there is work going on behind closed doors.
"What happened here in Evansdale was a horrible thing, and we continue to expend every resource available - our genuine best efforts everyday - at trying to continue to pursue justice, not just solve the case, not just fix the problem, but to pursue justice, and that's critically important to us," said Thompson.
