Case 119

Abigail Williams and Liberty German

*** Warning: This case involves a child victim ***

Monday, February 13, 2017, was a bonus day off school for students in the small American town of Delphi, Indiana. Best friends Abigail Williams and Liberty German decided to spend the day hiking and taking photographs on the Monon High Bridge Trail, which forms part of Delphi’s Historic Trails. Later that evening, when they fail to meet Liberty’s father at their designated pick-up spot, it’s soon suspected that the two teenagers met with foul play. 

After compelling evidence is recovered from Liberty’s smartphone, it’s expected that a prompt arrest will be made. But finding the suspect in The Delphi Murders becomes one of America’s biggest and most stifling modern mysteries.
