    Former NFL player raises reward to 'catch monster' in teen girls' killings
    Mar 3, 2017, 8:34 AM ET

    "The desperate search for a killer in the slaying of two Indiana teen girls has gotten a boost.

    Former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee and team owner Jim Irsay are nearly doubling the reward for information leading to an arrest of the perpetrator. The amount was increased to $200,000 for tips about the killings.

    "The only people that are really going to know who this is, is somebody who’s had a long relationship with this person, whether it's family or friends or something like that, and they're probably struggling with loyalty right now,” McAfee said today on “Good Morning America” of someone who might know the killer. “But this is a horrible person."

    Residents can pick up orange light bulbs to ‘light up Delphi’ as tribute to murder victims
    POSTED 4:22 PM, MARCH 2, 2017, BY FOX59 WEB
    UPDATED AT 10:37PM, MARCH 2, 2017

    "DELPHI, Ind. – A big effort is underway to “light up Delphi” as a tribute to*murder victims Abby Williams and Liberty German.

    Residents are being encouraged to use orange light bulbs on their porch as a constant reminder that police are still searching for their killer and the case remains unsolved.

    Orange lights have been popping up all over Indiana and across the United states – even at homes as far away as New York."

    How an unsolved murder of two girls turned this town upside*down
    By Joshua Rhett Miller
    March 2, 2017 | 1:57pm

    "In the 16 days since two girls were found murdered in a popular hiking area near their hometown of Delphi, Indiana, investigators from 25 different police departments have received more than 9,000 tips — but are no closer to solving a case that has sent shudders of fear through their close-knit community.

    Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said investigators have interviewed hundreds of possible witnesses and suspects in connection with the deaths of Abigail Joyce Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn German, 14, whose bodies were found on Feb. 14 —one day after they were reported missing— in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail in Carroll County.

    “And it goes on 24 hours a day,” Slocum told The Post Thursday. “We’re working as hard as we can to solve this case.”

    No arrests have been made in the double homicide that has gripped the town of roughly 3,000 people about 75 miles northwest of Indianapolis, putting residents on edge.

    “People are a little more cautious than anything, especially having anything to do with their children, just keeping a wary eye on them,” Slocum said. “And I’ve seen some reports in the media where people have indicated that they’re afraid and that just breaks my heart as a police officer because that’s why we do this job — to keep people safe and free of crime.”"

    Some may fear speaking up about Delphi murders despite*reward

    It’s an incredible amount of money showing just how much investigators need the public’s help; but despite that, some experts say there are people may still be worried about telling police what they know.

    They say "money talks," but when it comes to serious a crime, that’s not always the case. When somebody knows something about a crime, it usually comes down to one of two things that keep them clammed up.

    “One of them is fear, and that’s where the anonymous part comes in, and the other is apathy, they just don’t want to get involved in the system,” said Central Indiana Crime Stoppers Director Steve Dubois, who can’t comment directly on what’s happening in Delphi because it’s not a Crime Stoppers case. Despite that, he understands how much a reward can help people to speak up.

    “Rewards have a tendency to push them over that bump,” said Dubois. The Delphi murders reward is being handled by Indiana State Police.

    “It seems every time we have a change in anything in this case, when we released the voice, when we released the photograph naming that person as a suspect, people seem to want to get involved a little more, so as we’re increasing this reward [and] we’re continuing to receive information,” said State Police Sergeant Tony Slocum.

    “"No one is going to jail just because you call,” said Dubois, “no one is.”

    So far, State Police have received almost 10,000 tips. Yet, they’re still looking for that one which will tip the case in their favor.

    “We all know what is normal in our surroundings, we all know what feels right,” said Dubois, “and if you get that feeling that something’s not right, that’s when you probably need to tell somebody.”"

    Delphi victims’ families get investigation update; families may talk to media soon
    Kayla Sullivan Published: March 1, 2017, 10:16 am

    "DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — The victims’ families of the Delphi double homicide took a tour of the investigation facilities and police updated them on how it’s going so far.

    Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum told News 18 they talked to both families about coming out to the media soon. They aren’t sure when that’s going to be, but they believe when it happens it will be at an organized press conference."

    On Delphi and other 'high-profile' crimes: 'Sometimes it's a small little tip' that solves the case
    Katie Cox
    6:13 PM, Mar 3, 2017

    "But the murders in Delphi are just two of the many unsolved, high-profile cases in Indiana and nationwide. As cases like the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer show, widespread public interest does not always translate into case-solving tips.

    “Usually they’re high-profile because they’re so difficult to solve and it’s so unusual, what’s occurred,” said former Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department chief Troy Riggs.

    Earlier this year, the*murders of two cousins working inside an Indianapolis restaurant*also gained national attention. On January 3, Wesam Sammour and Ammar Shatnawi were shot and killed while closing up Jordan’s Fish and Chicken for the night near 21st Street and Post Road."

    Fundraisers honor slain Delphi girls’ memories

    "The money raised, organizers say, might be used to build a softball field in the girls honor, or fund ongoing self-defense classes for kids.

    “This will give years and years and years of exciting memories of these girls,” said Wilbur."

    Delphi investigators grateful for community outreach
    POSTED 6:45 PM, MARCH 3, 2017, BY NICK MCGILL, UPDATED AT 07:14PM, MARCH 3, 2017

    “"Times are tough, and some people have donated a significant amount and it’s astounding to me and I’m humbled,” he said.

    Slocum says that the community support has extended beyond money. Whether its offers to hand out flyers, banners featuring hand written notes, or the constant flow of homemade food, he says the community has been relentless in their support. It’s that support that he says helps drive the team of investigators forward.

    “I believe the human spirit just refuses to be stepped down by people who want to do evil in our community. As a law enforcement officer I know there’s more good in humanity than bad. This community just continues to show that, that they’re going to help you do what you have to do so we all can get back to enjoying life so to speak,” he said."

    The recording was longer than what has been released. Police won’t release anymore to protect the integrity of the investigation, but they’ve seen the video and likely won’t be able to stop thinking about it.

    “Imagine what that must be like, it’s generally and very likely will be one of the last things these ladies and gentleman see for the rest of their lives before they go to sleep,” said Carter.

    Delphi, Indiana:
    Who were Liberty German and Abigail Williams


    “Abby and Libby loved each other,” said Mike Patty. “This horrible crime has torn a hole in our families that will never heal.”

    Patty's remarks were the first public statements made by either family since the girls went missing on February 13 and were ultimately found dead the next day. He thanked law enforcement and the community for their support.

    “There are too many ways to count how our lives will forever be impacted,” said Patty. “It’s the small things that hurt the most.”

    Always give generously of yourself to support your beliefs. And when you're knocked down, give more.
