Police looking for suspects after two teenage girls are murdered in Indiana

DELPHI, In. (WBKO) -- On Monday evening, two teenage girls in Carroll County, Indiana were reported missing after last seen going hiking together.

On Tuesday, two bodies were found in a creek not far from the trail.

Wednesday evening, police confirmed that the bodies belonged to Liberty German and Abigail Williams.

Now the community of Delphi is trying to wrap their heads around who would do such a thing.

"Whoever you are that did this I hope they find you real soon," says resident, Mike Gibbs, "and I hope they treat you just the way you need to be treated."

Gibbs is a father with two daughters of his own. He says there's a fine line when you're trying to be a good parent -- saying you can't smother your children, but the world can be harsh.

"You can't be overprotective, you really can't. You have to let them grow up and experience life but at the same time you can't take your eyes off of them for a minute because there are predators out there and that's the reality of life."

Right now, police are looking for a man who was photographed walking on the same trail as the two girls.

They're not calling that man a suspect at this time, but hope to find new leads from any information he may provide.
