Newly released police documents show that the perpetrators of the unsolved Delphi murders are believed to have moved and staged the bodies of their victims and brought memorabilia from the 2017 murder.
Close friends Libby German, 14, and Abby Williams, 13, shed much blood in the murders with unknown weapons and did not die in the same place where bodies were found near the trail from their nightlife. Go out together a few hours before.
Shocking new details about the murder that shook the Delphi, Indiana community for more than five years are revealed in a search warrant obtained by the podcast The Murder Sheet. independent.
A warrant filed by an FBI agent investigating a 2017 murder was to search Ronald Logan’s home.
Logan’s home is just 1,400 feet from where Libby and Abby’s bodies were found on Valentine’s Day 2017. He died in 2020 and the case remains unsolved to this day.
In a partially-modified search warrant application, the agent stated that the killer must have been covered in the victim’s blood “because there was so much blood shed by the victims at the crime scene.”
“The nature of the victim’s wounds, it is almost certain that the person who committed the crime had blood on his clothes,” the agent wrote.
Investigators have never released details about how the girls died or the crime scene.
For the first time, the warrant was found to have been killed by some kind of weapon, but the wording is corrected in the document.
Libby and Abby went missing on February 13, 2017 after hiking along the Monon High Bridge Trail in Delphi, Indiana.
Their bodies were found the next day in a wooded area about half a mile from the trail.
For more than five years, the two girls’ families have been searching for answers to what happened and who was responsible for their murder.
But he’s never been arrested for some promising clues or theories that have been put forward over the years, and he’s sober.
The day the girls went missing, Libby posted a picture on Snapchat of herself and Abby walking down a promenade.
The 14-year-old girl also captured rough video on her phone of a man in jeans, jacket and hoodie walking along an abandoned railroad bridge.
Investigators released still images from the video and the creepy voice of a man telling the two girls to “go down the hill”.
Investigators have long suspected the man to be the murderer of the girls and have praised the girls for documenting the video as evidence.
The man was never revealed. He is a white male between the ages of 16 and 40, 5′ 6″ to 5′ 10″ tall and weighs between 180 and 200 pounds.
This rough image was taken with Libby’s cell phone on the way to the day the girls went missing. Investigators believe the man is the killer.
The release of the search warrant comes just months after Indiana State Police announced that they were investigating a fake online profile called anthony_shots in connection with the case.
The profile was used on platforms including Snapchat and Instagram from 2016 to 2017 and used photos of a known male model to portray him as very wealthy and owning numerous sports cars.
Investigators said the person behind the account was posing as a model to get underage girls to groom, send nude photos and addresses, and meet.
The male model used in the photo has been identified and is not a suspect in the case, authorities said.
The author of the fake online profile has already been identified as Kegan Anthony Kline, a 27-year-old male with addresses in Kokomo and Peru, close to Delphi.
He was arrested on charges of child exploitation and child sexual abuse images linked to the account, and pleaded guilty to grooming underage girls online.
The affidavit states that Indiana State Police and the FBI conducted a search warrant after tracking the user of the anthony_shots profile from Mr Kline’s home in Peru on February 25, 2017, less than two weeks after the murders of Abby and Libby.
Klein told investigators that he would use his social media accounts to communicate with underage girls, and received and exchanged messages about 100 sexual pictures and about 20 sexually explicit videos from about 15 underage girls.
Klein was charged with 30 felonies in 2020 in this case.
The documents, submitted in 2020 and heavily revised, make no mention of the murders of Libby and Abby, nor are they charged with any involvement in his deaths.
