(USNewsMag.com) – The murder of two teen girls along the Delphi Historic Trails in Delphi, Indiana, in 2017 shocked the nation. Police, along with the FBI, are still actively looking for their murderer five years later. Now, law enforcement is asking federal authorities to remove information from its wanted poster.
On February 13, 2017, Liberty “Libby” German, 14, and Abigail “Abby” Williams, 13, went for a walk near the Monon High Bridge Trail over Deer Creek in Deer Creek Township, Indiana. Around 2 p.m., Libby posted a photo of Abby walking on the bridge and that was the last anyone heard from the girls. They were reported missing later that evening; their bodies were found the next day. The murders, commonly known as the Delphi Murders, have received a great deal of media attention because Libby’s smartphone contained what appears to be a video and audio recording of their murderer.
The Indiana State Police recently asked the FBI to remove the height, age and weight of the suspect from the wanted flier — which they did. Authorities provided a statement to 13News, explaining their reasoning. They said they didn’t want those details to prevent someone from calling in a tip. Instead, they are asking the public to focus on the audio recording, video and police sketch.
Do you think removing the information is going to generate a lot of false leads, or do you believe it was the right thing to do?
Anyone with information about the murders is asked to contact 765-822-3535 or submit a tip online at [email protected].
