DELPHI, Ind. -- One minute; sixty seconds: It's a fraction of a 24-hour day, and an even smaller part of a week, a month, a year or a life.
And to find justice for two lives that ended too soon, all it takes is 1 minute.
The families of murdered Delphi teens Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, ask you to give their girls that minute of your time to help find their killer.
Take 30 seconds of that minute to look at the photo and listen to the audio below. Take the next 30 seconds to think: Do you recognize this man? Do you recognize this voice?
When Libby was asked to finish her homework or pick up her shoes or backpack, she would always tell her family "in a minute."
“That was Libby’s favorite expression around here for everything,” said Becky. “Every time you would ask her to do something… she’d always say… I’ll do it in a minute.”
“So that was always our joke with her because we already knew before she even said anything what she was going to say and it was always ‘in a minute,’” said Becky.
Now they're asking everyone to give her and Abby that one minute to study the photograph of the suspect in their deaths and listen closely to that audio recording of a man saying “down the hill.”
A lot can happen in one minute:
- 150 million emails are sent worldwide
- 250 babies are born
- Nearly 4 million searches are performed on Google
And you can help bring closure to a family reeling from a tragedy, and possibly prevent it from happening again.
“We owe that to them, we owe it to both of those girls,” said Becky. “Nothing is ever going to bring them back; now it’s our job to fight to keep it out there, to do whatever it takes to find that person or persons that’s done that to them. This is our job now.”
If you recognize that man or that voice. Call the tipline number below.
Police have received over 16,000 tips and are still actively investigating over 500 people in the case.
The reward raised to find Libby and Abby's killer is now more than $234,000.
Other donations will go towards building a softball complex and park in the girls’ names.
