(DELPHI) - At approximately 12:15 p.m. on February 14, 2017, the bodies of 13-year-old Abigail J. Williams and 14-year-old Liberty Rose Lynn German, both from Delphi, were found in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, east of Delphi, in Carroll County.

The teens had been reported missing the previous day by family members. Their bodies were discovered by volunteers who were helping in an organized search for the girls. Law enforcement is investigating the case as a double homicide.

The reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect (s) in the murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams has increased to $96,000. The increase is because of a flurry of donations from the public and businesses, including the Ball Corporation's, in Monticello, donation of $5,000.

There have been approximately 8,800 tips received via phone and email. Approximately 1,000 of those tips have come in since Saturday afternoon. The FBI is utilizing approximately 6,000 electronic bill boards, in 46 states, requesting information about this case.

This is the suspect's voice telling the girls to go "down the hill."
