Remembering Abby & Libby

By Naptime Naptime

Two years ago today, Delphi, Indiana, lost two innocent and beautiful girls to the hands of a monster. Thirteen year old Abigail “Abby” Williams and fourteen year old Liberty “Libby” German were dropped off by Libby’s sister Kelsi on the afternoon of Monday, February 13th, 2017, at Monon High Bridge, a popular hiking spot and historic landmark in Delphi. Libby had been using the social media app, Snapchat, to document the girls’ hike, when she spotted and filmed a man approaching the two girls. Given that Libby had aspired to study criminal justice, it’s very possible that she knew to listen to her gut instincts and recorded the suspicious man approaching the girls. This man caught up to the girls and threatened them into veering off the trail once they crossed the high bridge. Libby’s video and recording of the man directing the girls “down the hill”, has helped to draw in thousands of tips and much of the victory of law enforcement finding and arresting this man will be thanks to Libby’s heroic actions.

A volunteer searcher would find Abby Williams and Libby German murdered the next day, Valentine’s Day, on a nearby property. Police are still not releasing case details so as to be able to prosecute to the full extent of the law when the killer reveals details only they could know regarding the case. Please respect law enforcement’s choice to refrain from disclosing this information. In honor of Abby and Libby on this day of tragedy, please spread some positivity by showing those around you kindness, lighting a candle in their memory, donating to the food bank set up in the girls’ honor, etc. The food bank in honor of Abby and Libby will be held at Delphi United Methodist Church (1796 US 421) from 5pm to 7pm on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019.
