    @MonstrSquad, great, thoughtful insights you've shared here! Sometimes the "obvious" is *not* all THAT "obvious" -- especially to individuals very close to a situation (i. e., in this case, LE themselves may have never thought of considering cable techs, or vendors who must gain access to local residents' houses *while* the residents are inside their house). As you have suggested, a cable tech could be exceptional "eyes and ears" into places that LE might never even *think* of entering...

    This little "tidbit" just *may* be a part of the "missing puzzle piece" to bring the killer to justice. May that justice come *soon*!

    Think HS cliques.....well contained cliques. Cliques can have codes they abide by, and secrets that bind them. And, parents who are quite happy that their kid qualifies for such a clique. That's what I think we have here. I think the second sketch of an All American Boy supports my theory.

    It just seemed odd to me that after the obligatory and expected " know where your children are and what they're doing" (which the girl's adults did) ISP Riley chose to add the BBM below.

    Abby and Libby were dropped off around 1:45 to hike and take pictures and were allowed approximately an hour and a half before Libby's dad was to pick them up, not a lot of alone time at all for young teens.

    Their parents/ guardians knew where they were and what they were there for. Why the "if nothing else, know what's going on in their lives"? Why even hint that the girls may have been mixed up in anything that parents need to be alert for, that they didn't know about? They were out for a walk.

    "Sgt. Kim Riley said parents should keep a close eye on their children. "I think people need to be cautious and careful," Riley said. "Parents should make sure they know where their children are and what their children are doing, and if nothing else, know what's going on in their lives. That's the most important thing I can say at this point in time."

    I worked in a rural high school for 20 years, including grades 7 through 12, and 5 years prior to that in a youth treatment facility.

    I will attest to knowing for fact that teenagers can keep a secret, including a secret regarding the most grievous of crimes, as I have witnessed the very thing, first hand, on numerous occasions.

    Is the case that local teen(s) could be involved here plausible? Indeed it is. Is it fact that they are? No it is not. I suspect only LE would know at this juncture.

    I know for fact that gang initiation, not funny, blow it off, small time stuff, but real, fear for your life, gang initiation and activity exist in small town America within the teenage population, including local school districts.

    (moo) As for the comment bolded a couple posts above, I have long suspected A&L, one, the other, or both, were involved in or privy to some type of information that led to this murder. (moo)

    carry on.

    To add to my above statement, just to drive home a point.

    I would at times counsel certain adults, and myself included, NOT to press a particular teenager for information relative to a matter, knowing that the child's welfare would be placed in jeopardy should he/she reveal the very information we were seeking.

    Remember, snitches get stitches, and in the world of some teens, this is a very real and frightening possibility.

    I post here, often times, to do my little part, to keep this thread alive :)

    carry on.

    Perhaps something was discovered by LE that the girls family were not aware of and they didn't want to disclose it as it could be crucial in convicting the killer. But when/if this ever gets to trial LE will not be accused of not issuing advice to other parents. This seems to be a vague warning to me. JMO

    This is not in response to the above post but goes all the way back to Thread 113 #640 where you asked:

    "What department has the lead in this case (in charge)? What other departments are assisting. By “assisting” I mean detectives who do nothing else but work on the case.

    How many detectives are on the task force and where is the command post?”

    Indiana State Police (Supt. Doug Carter) is probably in charge. Other departments: Delphi Police Department (Chief Steve Mullin) and Carroll County Sheriff’s Department (Sheriff Tobe Leazenby). The FBI was involved from the start but now they may only be dealing with tips relating to persons outside Carroll County.

    As at June 25, 2017 they were down to 11 investigators.

    My suspicion is that this case is on the brink of being marked “Suspended pending further information”.

    I'm hoping I get lucky this time around because your opinion would be much appreciated re what stage you think things are at now. Do you believe it has now gone cold?

    "A Washington Post examination of 8,000 homicide arrests across 25 major U.S. cities since 2007 found that in half of the cases, an arrest was made in 10 days or fewer.

    The analysis underscores what police leaders and homicide experts have said about the passage of time working against detectives. But it also dispels the notion of a “48-hour rule” that most cases, if solved, are wrapped up in two days. Only 30 percent of the cases led to an arrest within that time frame, the analysis found. Two-thirds of arrests were made within one month. For cases that remained unsolved after one year, 5 percent ultimately led to an arrest.

    I agree that for most cases that go unsolved for years, they have a low percentage rate of being solved. But every killer leaves something behind at a crime scene and this guy, well they have a video of him and a voice recording. Most likely a lot more. I think he has a history of this, no way this is his first killing. He was brazen doing what he did in broad daylight, two victims and not getting rid of the phone. He made a mistake and he will get caught. He won't stop, he thinks he got away with it, and his ego and urges will get him caught. He also IMO told someone about this, maybe not in detail, but he bragged to someone. I also think there may be another person involved, but too scared to tell. So for most cases, yes, low percentage to solve, but his case, it will come. One day one of his past "kills" will lead LE to this crime or his future "crime" will lead them back to Delphi and Abigail and Liberty.
    I also think his "accent" is from Pittsburgh PA, at least raised there.

    No worries at all... it does seem, from subsequent replies, that there were some posts that set off a hinky meter or two. I'll have to read some past threads to see which one(s). :)

    Carter may appear to be in charge but he is the superintendent of the state police and he has a large police department to run. I assure you that he and the others mentioned not involved in the day by day investigation of the case.

    Since no one knows for sure I can surmise that the Indiana State Police is the lead agency with the county and city police also on the task force.

    By no means is the case “cold”. I know of someone that they were looking at during the past week.

    How will this end up? It’s anyone’s guess but it will be solved.

    I respectfully disagree, he is saying HE recognizes the voice as do several other people.

    His exacts words in the HLN interview with Hendricks are as follows:

    “I guess the investigator part of me started to kick in and I’m thinking, like several other people, I know that voice. Who is that? Who is that? And I’m still doing that, thinking who who is this person. I’ve heard that voice somewhere but I to this day I can’t put a name with that voice”

    He’s talking about himself not what other people should be asking themselves.
