New ‘Face’ Becomes Suspect in Delphi Murders

New ‘Face’ Becomes Suspect in Delphi Murders

State Police released new information today (Monday, April 22, 2019) in the February 2017 murders of two girls near Delphi, Indiana.  The following is a news release from Indiana State Police regarding the case:

Delphi Indiana — Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter spoke with members of the Delphi community and interested media today (Monday, April 22, 2019) to share the change in direction of the Delphi double murder investigation of Abigail (Abby) Williams and Liberty (Libby) German.  This investigation has been ongoing since the discovery of the girls bodies, the early afternoon of February 14, 2017, in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, about a half mile upstream from the high bridge.

Today, a new sketch of the suspect, appearing to be in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties and believed responsible for the murders of the girls, was shared with the Delphi community and media. As the investigation has progressed, information has been continuously reviewed and examined and this sketch more accurately depicts the face of the suspect from the video recorded on Liberty German’s cell phone while she and Abigail were on the High Bridge.

Also shared with the Delphi community was more of the audio, as well as previously unreleased video from Libby’s phone.  The sketch, audio and video footage can be viewed at this Indiana State Police website link: https://www.in.gov/isp/delphi.htm

As Superintendent Carter said today, “We have a witness. You made mistakes. We are coming for you and there’s no place for a heartless coward like you to hide that gets his thrill from killing little girls.”

This investigation has been a priority of the Multi-Agency Task Force since the first day of the investigation and will continue to be a priority for all participating law enforcement agencies.

Look at the sketch, listen to the audio, watch how this coward walks on the high bridge and send your tip to this email: Abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com


Updated Sketch This is the face of the suspect that goes with body of the video captured on Liberty German’s cell phone minutes before she and Abigail Williams were murdered.
