It’s my personal opinion that the girls had not been at Seven Bridges for 5 months. I believe they were killed not long before their bodies were found.
My theory is that they were taken by someone unknown to them and kept alive somewhere for a while. This is completely a hunch but I think he kept them as long as he could but then had to get rid of them because their hiding place was in danger of being discovered.
LE has always said their BODIES were found and not their REMAINS, which to me are different things. Remains are severely decomposed whereas bodies are intact. There was also no mention of only partial remains being found, and if they had been at 7 Bridges for 5 months, from July to December, there’s no way animals wouldn’t have scattered/scavenged their remains. If they had been there since July, in the heat they would have been decomposed to skeletal remains within weeks, leaving months of time animals would have had access to them, not to mention they’d be covered up by leaves falling in autumn.
But, what do I know. I’m just speculating based on bits and pieces of the evidence I’ve heard from LE releases. But I do think the person who took them lived in and probably still lives in the area. I also think there’s zero connection to Delphi and it annoys the heck out of me that people want to connect that just because it was 2 girls abducted together.
You make some good points and I would hope for you to be right because there would likely be more evidence, possibly DNA, left behind by the perpetrator. Unless he/she was extremely meticulous about not leaving anything at the location they were found.
However, I’m open to either one or two separate killers. It may be rare, but it’s not unheard of or impossible for one person to control two young children enough to abduct and kill them.
Joseph Duncan and Michael Klunder are just two examples of killers that did just that and Duncan did it more than once.
We all hope that there would not be several persons evil and disturbed enough to commit these kinds of crimes.
Let’s be patient with those who would rather not think there are so many monsters in our midst.
