Evelyn Miller, 5, was reported missing on July 1, 2005, from the apartment south of Floyd that her mother shared with boyfriend, Casey Fredericksen. Her body was later found in the Cedar River on July 6. Cause of her death was never disclosed.

Fredericksen was home with Evelyn and two other children while Miller was working a night shift at an area nursing home. She returned home around 6 a.m. and reported her daughter missing.

Danny Slick and Randy Patrie of Charles City said Evelyn was alive when the pair visited the apartment about 2 a.m.

Slick was sentenced in February 2007 to one year and one day in prison for lying to FBI agents investigating the girl’s disappearance.

Noel Miller served two days in jail in 2007 on a charge of going armed with intent. She also lost her bid to get custody of the two young sons she had with Fredericksen, who were put in foster care shortly after Evelyn’s murder.

Fredericksen went to prison on a child pornography charge in 2006 after investigators found about 1,650 images on his computer hard drive, some depicting young girls having sex with adult men.

In 2009, a drug indictment alleged Fredericksen, already serving a 14-year prison sentence on child pornography charges, conspired with others to manufacture methamphetamine from 2004 through June 2005. He pleaded guilty and in 2010 was sentenced to up to 10 more years in prison.
