Authorities have taken the search for the killer of two young Delphi, Indiana, girls in a “new direction” as the case remains unsolved two years later.

Indiana authorities released a new sketch of the the man who killed 13-year-old Abby Williams and 14-year-old Libby German in 2017. They believe he’s from Delphi or extremely familiar with the Delphi community, and may currently work in Delphi.

Police said the suspect appears to be between the ages 18-40; he possibly appears younger than his age. He could be “hiding in plain sight,” according to authorities.

“We believe you are hiding in plain sight… maybe in this room,” Indiana State Police Supt. Douglas Carter said during a Monday morning press release.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, on February 13, 2017, Abby and Libby took a hiking trip at an abandoned bridge in Delphi. The outing was only meant to be for a few hours. It was last time their family and friends would ever see them alive.

The day started out as usual for the girls. Their family dropped them off to take a hike across the Monon High Trail, where the girls took photos for social media and hung out together. As the hours passed and their family didn’t hear from them, they became worried and called authorities for assistance. Their lifeless bodies were found the following day, not far from the bridge they walked across.

Shortly after their deaths, the incident was nicknamed the “Snapchat Murders” after Abby took a photo of Libby at around 2:17 p.m. and put in on social media. Detectives noted that shortly after the photo was taken, a man approached the girls and apparently told them to “go down the hill.”

Abby, likely sensing danger, recorded the man’s voice on her cellphone. She also managed to take a photo and record a small clip of the suspect. Although his face isn’t clear in the picture, it was enough to give authorities a general description.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Delphi Homicide Investigation Tip Line at 844-459-5786. You can also contact the Indiana State Police at 800-382-7537; the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department at 765-564-2413; or email Abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com.
