FBI, police search home in connection with two dead teens found in woods

by Leigh Egan

Federal agents and police carried out a search warrant on Thursday to an Indiana home stemming from two Indiana girls found dead on a hiking trail earlier this week.

WLFI reports that a large police police presence surrounded Delfi on Thursday, but no arrests were made. They were gathering evidence for the murders of Libby German, 14, and Abby Williams, 13; both girls were found killed in the woods.

Although there were no arrests, witnesses say authorities carried about numerous bags of evidence from a home off of the 1000 block of Bicycle Bridge Road.

The search warrant came after Indiana police released a grainy image of a man walking on a railroad track close to where the girls were found.

Both girls were dropped off on Monday near Monon High Bridge. They were never or heard from since. On Tuesday, their bodies were around 3/4 miles from the bridge area.

Authorities received over 200 calls and tips after the girls were found. Detectives indicated that Thursday’s search is likely the one of many to follow.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Indiana State Police, set up specifically for the double homicide case, at 844-459-5786.
