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.

Body of young boy found in wooded area Washington County, IN in Las Vegas suitcase

This incident is burning in my heart right now. This child was found, dead, in this suitcase, in Washington County, Indiana. Where he died is not known yet, but he was left there in the woods, someone must have thought he would not have been found for a long time. I can’t wrap my mind around how someone can do this at all. If you cannot love your child, drop him or her off at the hospital. They know what to do. Killing your child is NOT the answer. Someone will love them. I would love your child. There are so many people who could not have babies who would gladly take your unloved unwanted babies without question. No need to hurt them. What happened to this young boy was unnecessary and I cry for him every day since I read about it. I hope and pray that the person or persons who did it are brought to justice, to the ultimate justice. I do not know what they have named him, but for my blog, I am naming him Vegas Washington Doe, with all the love in my heart.
