DELPHI, IN — Police in Indiana believe that the voice in a Snapchat clip taken by a murdered teen girl shortly before she died might be that of the killer.
Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were dropped off near a bridge in Delphi, Indiana, at around lunchtime on Monday. The girls were supposed to meet their ride back at the bridge later on, but failed to return.
German posted a photo to her Snapchat showing Williams on the bridge (above), which was the last time either girl was seen alive. Additionally, German also recorded a short video that authorities found on her phone. In it, an unidentified man’s voice can be heard saying “down the hill.”
The recording was played several times in a press conference during an update on the double-homicide investigation. Authorities are hoping that someone may recognize the voice that German captured.
Police had previously released a photograph they hoped will help identify a man seen on Delphi Historic Trails on Monday so that they can interview him. It is unclear whether the voice belonged to the man in the photograph.Police have said that they also want to talk to anyone who was parked at the High Bridge Trail Head on Monday afternoon.
The double homicide has reportedly “devastated” residents of Delphi, a tight-knit community with a population of only around 3,000.
Police have asked anyone with information about the case, the man in the photograph, and anyone who hiked the Delphi Historic Trails on Monday to call the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department at (765) 564-2345.
The police department states:
“Information can be reported anonymously; however, the Indiana State Police, the FBI, and the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department have announced a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the homicides of Liberty German and Abigail Williams. The amount of the reward may be up to $41,000 depending upon the value of the information provided.”
