DELPHI, Ind. -- If you saw a hitchhiker or somebody walking along roads in Delphi last week, the police would like to talk to you. You could help find who killed Abigail Williams and Liberty German.

Police are asking the public to try and remember if you saw somebody Monday, Feb. 13 in the late afternoon or evening. 

"We're asking people that were driving down the Hoosier Heartland that might have seen a hitchhiker or someone walking. We're asking people that live in Logansport all the way to Lafayette, if they saw somebody late that afternoon, that evening of Monday the 13th, if they saw somebody walking down the roadway that just did not look like they should be there, or they're just a hitchhiker, we would like to talk to that person," said Sgt. Kim Riley, Indiana State Police.

They are also looking for leads related to the suspect seen walking on a trail near the Monon High Bridge.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said the person pictured is “our suspect we are considering at this time" and police would like to arrest him.

Delphi Mayor Shane Evans spoke for the first time on Monday about the crime. He said the community will continue to work through the tragedy by coming together. They will not let it tear them apart. 

"The evil that was done is indescribable but the good that we see in this community is equally indescribable, it's been utterly amazing," said Evans. "I'd like to think we can be remembered for that."

The teens’ bodies were found Tuesday and were positively identified Wednesday. Law enforcement said they are investigating the case as a double homicide.



On Feb. 16 a search warrant was issued for a home on West Bicycle Bridge in Delphi as part of the investigation, but police said no one at the home is considered a suspect in the murder.
