Nic from the True Crime Garage Podcast joins me this week to make heads and tails of the new information out of Delphi. We work through the police statement and what it all means. While we both agree this is a significant move in the investigation but we do our best not to speculate. Again, this case will be solved by someone who knows something.
The Delphi Police Department, the Carroll County Sheriff, the Indiana State Police, and the FBI are asking for your assistance in identifying the suspect in the double homicide of two teenage girls, Abigail J. “Abby” Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German, 14, both from Delphi.
In Monday’s press conference, authorities turned to the public in hopes of gleaning more information about the phony profile creator, known as a catfish, who went by the name “anthony_shots” on social media between 2016 and 2017.
Police released photos of a male model used by the suspect, emphasizing that they were in contact with the model, who is not a person of interest in their investigation.
“The fictitious anthony_shots profile used images of a known male model and portrayed himself as being extremely wealthy and owning numerous sports cars,” said Public Information Officer Sgt. Jeremy Piers. “The creator of the fictitious profile used this information while communicating with juvenile females to solicit nude images, obtain their addresses, and attempt to meet them.”
On Monday, February 13th, 2017, at approximately 1:00 p.m., the two young girls were let off near the Monon High Bridge, an abandoned rail bridge over Deer Creek to walk around and hang out. They were to be picked up later in the afternoon, but did not show up there at the previously arranged time. Following an extensive search, at approximately 12:15 p.m. on February 14, 2017, the bodies of the two girls were found in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, approximately one-half mile upstream from the bridge.
