Bodies found in IN are those of missing girls

The 13-year-old girls vanished Monday while they were supposed to be hiking near Delphi, Ind. Kim Riley told the Associated Press that the girls' bodies were about three-quarters of a mile from an abandoned railroad bridge.

Authorities have not released the cause of their deaths, citing the ongoing investigation.

Delphi Police Chief Steve Mullin said he'll leave it up to the community to decide how they react to the incident.

"We've got volunteers that went out in the search parties". Their bodies were found near the trail on private property on Tuesday.

They say foul play is suspected but there is no information on any potential suspects.

The rural city of Delphi, Indiana, has been rocked by the unsolved murders of two teenage girls, whose bodies were found a day after they disappeared on a nature trail near the city.

On Thursday, a satellite link was set up to provide a secure, direct link with Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in DC and also with the Department of Homeland Security, local police said.

Just before 7 p.m. Wednesday, ISP released a photo of a subject reportedly walking on Dephi's historic trail system at the time of the girls' disappearance.

A new tip line number has been setup for any information regarding the deaths of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.

For Carroll County residents, Wednesday's deaths mark the second tragedy in a matter of months. "I know we're not giving you much, I understand that".

Police urged the community to contact police with any tips they might have to help authorities in the investigation. "We don't know if it's a person who came in and left, or if it's somebody in the neighborhood". Police are asking for any information the public may have as to the man's identity.
