Police confirm bodies found in Carroll County are missing teen girls

4th-grade teacher in Florida caught on camera kissing student

Police have yet to release a cause of death, citing an ongoing investigation.

Indiana State Police released two photos on Wednesday of the man, noting that he was seen walking along the Delphi Historic Trails outside Indianapolis on Monday at around the same time Abigail Williams and Liberty German were there. Authorities have not identified the source of the photos. The organizations are working the case as a double homicide.

Multiple agencies joined the search for the girls on Monday and Tuesday including a dog unit and a dive team. No members of either girl's family spoke at the press conference, but Leazenby said the parents had suspected the bodies belonged to their daughters even before identification.

The girls were reported missing by their families several hours later when they did not return.

A search began late Monday, with police, firefighters and community volunteers scouring the trails. The girls' bodies were discovered about midday Tuesday in a hilly area along Deer Creek just east of Delphi.

The area where the bodies were recovered is still an active crime scene and evidence is being recovered.

McCain, who did not know the girls directly, said their deaths will "strike a fear" in the quiet, tight-knit community.

Authorities have declined to provide additional details.

Riley said that autopsies determined the bodies are those of Carroll County teens Liberty German and Abigail Williams. "That's the most important thing I can say at this point in time".

However, people were posting their condolences on Williams' mother's Facebook page and police have "scaled back" the search for the girls.

"Devastated", community organizer Dan McCain told the Lafayette Journal & Courier of how he felt when learning police were treating the deaths of the middle school students as a homicide.

"There's somebody out there, somewhere", Riley said. "We don't know if it's a person who came in and left, or if it's somebody in the neighborhood", Riley said.

Additionally, authorities are looking for anyone who may have parked in the area between 1 and 5 p.m. on Monday.
