DELPHI, Ind. -- A local artist is putting together a music album in honor of two murdered Delphi teens.

Bradley Brown, who goes by the artist name “Lee Brown,” is compiling songs from other artists along with some of his own to create the album.

“I’ve always been an artist,” said Brown. “The only way I could give back is music, and music to me is therapy.”

Brown is friends with some of Liberty German’s family and said the proceeds from the sale of his album will go to help the girls’ families.

Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty, 14, went hiking on February 13, near the Monon High Bridge. A search team found their bodies the next day.

As police continue to search for the girls’ killer, Brown said his push to help the families is “just something you do” in a close-knit community like Delphi.

“Even though we might not know your name, we know you if we see you at the gas station or the store. It’s kind of touched everybody,” said Brown.

Brown said he doesn’t have a release date on his album but it should be available for purchase in the coming weeks.

In an effort to rule out suspects from the thousands of tips coming in about the girls’ murders, police have been conducting interviews and searches at random through the last two weeks.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Police are still trying to identify the man from a photo and short audio clip that were released last week. Police say both were captured on Liberty Williams cell phone the day that she died. You can listen to that recording below.

The FBI is also using about 6,000 electronic billboards in 46 states to try to get information about the case.
