The mother of one of two Iowa girls whose bodies were recently found says she doesn't want to know how her daughter was killed.

Waterloo television station KWWL reports Heather Collins says she doesn't need to know what anyone did to Elizabeth Collins because it's in God's hands. She says her daughter is up in heaven.

Authorities confirmed Monday that two bodies found last week belonged to Elizabeth and her cousin, Lyric Cook. Hunters found the bodies in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area, about 25 miles from where the girls were last seen.

Heather Collins says she worries about learning possible gruesome details as the investigation moves forward.

Elizabeth was 8 and Lyric was 10 when they went for a bike ride in July and didn't return.
