From earlier this afternoon:

http://fox59.com/2017/03/17/authorit...i-murder-case/

Quote:
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.

With the exception of the hair Mr. Logan looks like the suspect in the picture.

I read that both victims had scarfs around their necks during the funerals which leads me to think they either had their throats cut or strangled. Probably strangled as Abby survived the attack and died of hypothermia a few hours before the search party located the bodies. As BTK confirmed it can be difficult to kill someone from strangulation and I doubt he intended to leave Abby alive.


I've been over at Webslueths discussing this case and not really much is going on, great site though. Police are not releasing much and probably for good reason.

The more time goes on the more I think the killer must have been a local.

I'm very much beginning to fear that this won't be solved. I'm a little surprised by how upsetting that idea is to me, partly from moral outrage at the murders, but even moreso because of the violence that it does to my sense of rural Indiana, the rural midwest, really, as a safe and civilized place. I find myself wanting the murderer to be an illegal alien, or a Syrian refugee - some sort of outsider, in much the same way, and, I suspect, for much the same reasons that Londoners in 1888 speculated that Jack must be 'foreign', or otherwise outside the normal bounds of society.

The crime reminds me as well of the Ripper by the absolute brazenness of it. The girls were kidnapped from a public trail, in broad daylight. The crime had to have started on the bridge, where he was in plain view, and with few options to escape if some other trailwalkers appeared. He was obviously very sure of himself, but was he careless and got away with it, or did he know just exactly how much he could get away with, and how? That dichotomy - lucky, or skilled? - is strongly present in the Ripper murders as well.

The above links to a Sept 29th story at my local Colorado news station about a suspect named Daniel Nations who is accused of threatening hikers with a hatchet. They are looking at him in the shooting death of a bicyclist.

Apparently they are also investigating him for the death of the two girls in Delphi, IN.

I heard about this again tonight, and it reminded me to post the information for those of us interested in the murders.

Thanks for posting that! I'd not been aware.
