DELPHI, Ind. – Indiana State Police, the FBI and Carroll County sheriff’s deputies are serving a search warrant Friday in connection with the murders of two Delphi teens.
The warrant is being served at the home of Ronald Logan, the owner of the property where the bodies of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were found.
Logan is being held right now on a probation violation unrelated to the case. Investigators said they were looking for evidence that would link or clear Logan in the girls' deaths. Police said Logan is not considered a suspect at this time.
Logan's attorney, Andrew Achey, issued the following statement:
"I have received several phone calls over the past several days from media outlets concerning Mr. Ronald Logan and his possible involvement in the deaths of the girls in Carroll County. I have known Mr. Logan for several years and have represented him in unrelated legal matters. Stated simply, Mr. Logan had no involvement in this heinous crime. I would like to caution the public to avoid jumping to conclusions before law enforcement has completed the ongoing investigation. Not only does Mr. Logan maintain his innocence but he also encourages anyone with information to call the tip line at (844) 459-5786 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org."
The girls disappeared during a hike on Feb. 13, 2017, prompting a large search effort involving volunteers and several law enforcement agencies. A search team found their bodies a day later, and police said foul play was suspected in their deaths.
Since then, the case has gained national attention, with a national billboard campaign and a reward exceeding $230,000.
Police released two key pieces of evidence in their search for the killer, including a photo and a recording of a man’s voice saying, “Down the hill.” Both clues came from Libby German’s phone, police said.
Police have received thousands of tips as they try to find the person responsible for killing Abby and Libby, and have served numerous search warrants in connection with the investigation.
Anyone with information should call the tip line at (844) 459-5786 or send an email to email@example.com.
