Sheriff Tony Thompson said they are ruling nothing out, especially the criminal history Morrissey has.
Grandma Wylma Cook said that Morrissey gave investigators names to knock time off his sentence, from 45 years to 10 years with a mandatory 5 years in prison. She also believes that Morrissey gained some enemies when narcing on the druggies to police. I am assuming she believes that these enemies have the girls.
The Judge in the case, Judge Andrea Dryer told Morrissey that he has very serious charges against him and he needs to be ready for trial in a month. The trial is set to start on 28 August 2012.
A news station was subpoenaed for footage of the interview they had last week with Wylma and Misty Cook. KWWL was subpoenaed and posted the subpoena on their website. Dan Schillinger, the news director said they will submit the full video to the Black Hawk County Attorney office. View the subpoena

My heart goes out to these girls and the families.
