Delphi, Indiana: Grandfather of Liberty German expected to speak publicly on Thursday

DELPHI, Ind. -- Liberty German's grandfather is expected to make a public statement about her death for the first time on Thursday. 

Neither the Germans nor the family of Abigail Williams have spoken publicly since the girls went missing on February 13 and were ultimately found dead the next day.

German's grandfather is expected to speak Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Carroll County Courthouse. RTV6 will carry the speech live on the RTV6 app, theindychannel.com/live and on the RTV6 Facebook page

The families of both girls toured the Delphi investigation headquarters last week.

While there, Abigail's grandparents made a stop at a board where the community can leave messages for investigators. Their message to police offered prayers and thanks:

Libby, 14, and Abby, 13, went missing while hiking near the Monon High Bridge. Their bodies were found less than a mile from where they were last seen alive.

The reward for information leading to an arrest in the girls’ murder hit $219,000 on Monday after significant donations over the past week from local businesses, families, Pat McAfee and Colts' owner Jim Irsay

If you would like to donate to the reward fund, you can mail a check to the Indiana State Police Alliance, 1415 Shelby Street, Indianapolis, IN, 46203. Put "Delphi Reward" on the memo line of your check

Indiana State Police have released a picture of a suspect, which was taken by Liberty on her cell phone. She also captured a man's voice saying "down the hill."  You can listen to that recording below.

Indiana State Police are still encouraging anyone with information on the case, no matter how insignificant, to call the Delphi Homicide Investigation Tip Line at (844) 459-5786 or 1-800-225-5324 (800-Call FBI). Tips can also be emailed to Abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com. Information can be reported anonymously.
