Detectives in Indiana just got a major break in the case of two murdered young girls, and the one who tipped them off was none other than one of the victims. One of her last acts on this Earth was making sure her killer would be brought to justice.
According to ABC News, Liberty “Libby” German and Abigail “Abby” Williams, 14 and 13, were reported missing on Feb. 13 after they did not return from a hike. Police organized search parties and the bodies of the girls were found the following day outside Delphi, the county seat of Carroll County, about an hour north of Indianapolis. The bodies were about three-quarters of a mile from the abandoned railroad bridge where the girls had been dropped off the previous day to go hiking.
Investigators have not publicly revealed their cause of death.
“Evidence in this case has led investigators to believe that this is a double homicide, and that’s what we’re investigating at this time,” Indiana State Police spokesman Sgt. Tony Slocum told reporters after the girls’ identities were revealed. They apparently got a major break in the case from the cellphone of Liberty German.
At a news conference Wednesday, Slocum said investigators discovered not only a photo of the man suspected to have murdered the young girls, but also a sound clip in which his voice can be identified. The audio quality was poor, but police believed it was enough for someone to recognize it. Three words were heard when police played the audio for the media.
“Down the hill,” a deep voice can be heard saying.
