DELPHI, Ind. -- People in Indiana and across the United States are replacing their porch lights with orange light bulbs to “Light up Delphi.”

The effort is in support of the families of Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13. The two girls went missing while hiking near the Monon High Bridge on February 13. Their bodies were found the next day.

The goal is to shine orange lights in support until their murders are solved.
