Delphi Monon High Bridge murders: Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German and Abigail Joyce “Abby” Williams German

Libby and Abby

According to the press conference, the probable cause statement is still sealed, so evidence cannot be released yet. Once they are unsealed, then I will post what I can. But they do not want to cause a problem with getting a conviction. Remember, there is only one bite at the apple and if he is guilty, we do not want that to be ruined.
