Grandfather believes killer of 2 IN teens will be found

Grandfather believes killer of 2 IN teens will be found

"A phrase that was jokingly attached to Libby in our family - from asking her to pick up her shoes, her school backpack, her coat - her first reply would nearly always be, 'I will in a minute, '" Patty said. "He's someone's neighbor or coworker", said Mike Patty, the grandfather of the slain Liberty German, at a news conference Thursday, imploring anyone with information to "help us collect the pieces to this puzzle".

Police have released a photograph of a man who they say is the prime suspect in the investigation, but no arrests have been made.

"This terrible crime has torn a hole in our families that will never heal", he said.

A memorial of flowers, angel ornaments and a glittery bunny rabbit for each girl now sits close to the bridge where they were last seen alive.

Toward the end of the conference, Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine took over and announced the Delphi reward has now increased to $224,000 through additional donations and more than 11,000 tips have come into the command center.

Both the image and the recording were captured by German's cellphone about the time of her death, police said.

"I will", the 14-year-old would say, followed by a pause. "Throughout this tragedy, we have honored their memory by carrying forward and respecting each other".


The grandfather of Liberty German, one of two Delphi eighth-graders killed February 13, called on the community to help police find justice for his granddaughter.

It comes as police follow-up on thousands of tips in the case. "Before they go to bed, when they get up, drop them off for school.it's always, 'I love you'".

An emotional Patty said he was grateful for the outpouring of support the family has received from the public and for the work of multiple law enforcement agencies in the case.

Two weeks ago, police confirmed that a man walking along Monon High Bridge near the trail, around the same time as the girls, was who they were looking for. "Both those girls are heroes in my book". "I don't know exactly what happened out there that day, but I imagine there was probably an opportunity for one or both to separate and try to make a break different ways. Neither one of them left each others' side". They're seeking to identify him in the hopes he has information. "Somebody knows. And if you're watching, we'll find you", Carter said, addressing the suspect. "How ever small it may seem.please, we need your help".

Authorities urge anyone with information about the killings to call their tip line.

The public is encouraged to keep reporting new tips about the investigation, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem.
