A Break in the Delphi Murders?

Is there a break in the Delphi murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams? Let’s hope so. But we’ll have to wait and see.

Since the double murder of Libby and Abby nearly eight months ago on an isolated trail in Delphi, Indiana, there have been promising leads in the search for their killer. But as each one was followed up on and every rabbit hole explored, it seems as if every promising tip led nowhere.

Investigators in Delphi announced early on that they had audio and video of the man that they think might have been responsible for the murders. But despite an unprecedented nationwide effort to identify the man on the audio and video, their efforts seemed to have proven fruitless. Police also indicated early on that they had possible DNA evidence that they were fast tracking through the lab, but haven’t commented much on that since. Despite on ongoing investigation by countless amateur sleuths on the internet and in several Facebook groups, the coverage of the case has quieted amid fears that the killer might slip away and the case might go cold.

But this week, a compelling development in the case might be at hand. That development came with the arrest of Daniel Nations. Nations, a registered sex offender with a lengthy police record spanning across multiple states, was arrested in Colorado for allegedly threatening several Continue reading “A Break in the Delphi Murders?”

Update on the Delphi murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams

 

A quick update on the Delphi murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.

Sadly, there is not much of an update other than to say that the case is essentially cold. I was pretty excited that there was such an all out public effort nationwide to catch this killer and with audio & video evidence of who killed them, I thought Abby’s and Libby’s murders may have been solved by now but that has not happened.

I’ve been saying for weeks now that more photos, video, or audio is needed here. Something that shows the body language of this suspect or more of his voice may be the missing piece of the puzzle but police don’t seem to want to do this, and I hope it’s not at the peril of this case being solved. My fear is that 5 years or 10 years from now, they decide to release something that they have kept close to the vest but by then the case is forgotten, and potential witnesses and suspects move away,die, etc

Libby’s and Abby’s murders have been by far the most popular articles on my blog, and I intend to keep updating their case. My original article Twisted Tracks; The Murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams and the follow up article, The Most Wanted Man in America have generated lots of comments and theories and I hope that will continue.

One positive update is that there is finally a podcast about this case that has been put out by True Crime Garage and I encourage anybody reading this to give it a listen. They have an excellent podcast and I am sure that they will give this case the attention it deserves, I am listening to it today.

I ask that you keep this case in the spotlight by sharing via social media and if you have any tips or information, please contact the Indiana State Police.

Update 7/18/17 Authorities have released a sketch of the perpetrator 

UPDATE 9/28/17 There may be a break in this case.

Twisted Tracks; The Murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams

 

 

(Updates on a regular basis to this story can be found at the bottom of this article)

As I was preparing to launch my Blog, shooting for a mid-February launch, a senseless double murder of two teenage Girls grabbed national headlines and it would only be fitting for me to write this article about their case. My hope is that by the time you read this, that those responsible for their deaths, are identified. My fear is that by the time that you read this, that they won’t be.

Delphi, Indiana is a small rural town about 75 miles North of Indianapolis. The town is surrounded by secluded, scenic nature trails known as the Delphi Historic Trails, that feature miles of train tracks. The population of Delphi consists of approximately 3,000 People, and one of them is quite possibly a murderer.

On Monday February 13,2017 at about 1pm, a Family Member dropped off 14 year-old Liberty German and 13 year old, Abigail Williams near the trails so that the two teenage Friends could spend the day together hiking the trails. At 5:30 PM, they were supposed to meet up with a Family Member at a pre-determined location to be picked up. They never showed. When the two Friends did not show up, Family immediately reported them missing, and a large search party was created to search the Historic Trail area where they had been walking, but the search had to be suspended due to darkness, and resumed the next morning.

On Tuesday, February 14,2017 the search resumed that included K9 units and Dive teams. The search went on thru the day until around Noon when searchers discovered two bodies. The Bodies, although not confirmed to be Liberty and Abigail officially, obviously were. Police would not release much in the way of details, but stated that foul play was suspected.

 

Due to the rural and secluded location where the Girl’s Bodies had been found, this had all the makings of a case that may go cold quickly due to a lack of witnesses, but the Police released a photo of a ‘Person of interest’ on Wednesday February 15, 2017. The grainy photo, which is possibly from the frame of a video, appears to show a man with a blue jacket and jeans walking alone the railroad tracks. It’s unclear what camera source the photos came from. Police stated that they wanted to talk to the man to see if he could help their investigation and asked the public to help identify him. It is not known if the man was identified, however, the Police executed a case related search warrant at a home in Delphi on Thursday February 16,2017. No arrests have been made as of the posting of this article.

This is a sad case. Two young Girls spending the day together having fun doing something they enjoyed and not getting into trouble. This shouldn’t have happened. There have been plenty of theories and discussions about the case so far via social media and on various amateur sleuthing websites like Websleuths.com

So far, there have been lots of questions and few answers. As of the time this article is being published, Police have not identified a Person of Interest, nor have they released autopsy results. In fact, they haven’t even officially called the deaths of the two Girls murders. Some clues are out there to be found, including the social Media, ‘Snapchat’ that the Girls were using around the time of their deaths. The following photo was posted to Liberty’s Snapchat account on the afternoon they went missing. The haunting photo shows Abigail walking on railroad track bridge that was part of the trail area. While it’s assumed that her Friend Liberty took the photo, it’s not certain.

The Snapchat photo of Abigail taken at 2:07 PM the day that they vanished, is the last known documentation of their movements. Their Bodies were found less than a mile from this Bridge. I hope that there are answers soon in this case, and that it doesn’t go cold. Police certainly are being tight lipped about what they do or do not have so far in this case. It remains to be seen if this case will be solved and if so, was the Killer a Stranger to the Girls, or more disturbing, possibly Somebody close to them. I will update this article as Details emerge.
