Case 119

Abigail Williams and Liberty German

On Sunday February 12, Abigail Williams and Liberty German spent the afternoon practicing their swing in preparation for the upcoming softball season. That night, the pair emptied Abigail’s craft box onto Liberty’s bedroom floor and stayed up late painting pictures.

When they woke up the following morning of Monday February 13, Liberty’s father Derrick made the girls a pancake breakfast. The warm weather had persisted and Abigail and Liberty decided to make the most of it by spending the afternoon hiking along one of their favourite walking tracks, the Monon High Bridge Trail. They both shared an interest in photography and aimed to capture some scenic nature shots along the secluded, wooded track. 

Liberty’s sister, Kelsi, offered to drive the teens to their hiking destination and at 1:45pm, she dropped Abigail and Liberty off at the large wooden sign that marked the beginning of the Monon High Bridge Trail.
