The five-year-old Floyd County girl who’s been missing since Friday has been found murdered, according to a family member. Evelyn Miller’s grandfather says that he learned at about 10:30 last night that her body had been found in the Cedar River. Richard Christie of Des Moines told reporters from Waterloo and Cedar Rapids that Floyd County Attorney Marilyn Dettmer had informed him that Miller was murdered and her body was put in the Cedar River. Christie also said that he was told one person was being held in custody as part of the case. Authorities had launched a criminal investigation earlier in the week into the disappearance of Miller, who was last seen by two acquaintances of her mother’s fiancé at about 2 AM last Friday. Those two men were questioned by local authorities and a search of their residence was conducted, but authorities have not called them suspects. A news conference will be held later this morning at the Floyd County Courthouse to release more details of the case.
