DELPHI TIMELINE: Disappearance and murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams
The mystery surrounding a double murder continues over a month after the bodies of Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were found.
This was the last time anyone heard from the girls.
When family showed up to get them they were nowhere to be found. Family began canvasing the area for Libby and Abby but could not locate them.
The Carroll County Sheriff's Department, Delphi Police Department, and Delphi Fire Department were joined by the Department of Natural Resources to search for the two missing girls.
Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said crews began canvassing the area and tried pinging the girls' cell phones into the evening hours but had no success in finding them. The sheriff said they believed the girls' phones were either dead or turned off.
At this point in time, Sheriff Laezenby said they had no reason to believe that the girls were in imminent danger and crews would resume their search in the morning.
Those bodies were not identified as the girls, but search efforts were officially 'scaled back.'
Autopsies were performed earlier that day in Terre Haute, according to authorities.
