One of the creepiest cases of the decade — if not century — is being referred to as the “Snapchat murders.” If ever there was an instance of the ubiquity of social media helping to document the raw demented brutality of the human race, it is this one. The mysterious case continues to baffle police and haunt family members of two young girls who were murdered in Delphi, Indiana, in February this year.
Did Liberty German, 14, Abigail Williams, 13 capture their killer on Snapchat shortly before he murdered them? They were hiking along the Delphi Historic Trail and posting to the social media platform when a mysterious figure began to encroach from the distance.
In perhaps the creepiest twist from the case, police have released grainy audio recorded by the girls, which seems to catch the killer ordering them down a hill.
Now, police believe there may be a connection with the double murder of cousins Lyric Cook, 10, and Elizabeth Collins, eight, who were murdered over 400 miles away in Iowa.
