A Central Indiana community is in shock as double autopsies got underway on Wednesday morning in the 8 a.m. hour. This followed the discoveries of two bodies on Tuesday during a search for two young teens who went missing from Delphi on Monday. Police in Carroll County are investigating the circumstances of the discovery of those bodies found near Deer Creek but at this time, they’re not saying whose bodies they are. Officials say two friends, 13-year-olds Liberty German and Abigail Williams were dropped off at an abandoned railroad truss Monday afternoon—a popular hangout and hiking trail in that area near the Monon, but when family arrived to pick them up at a designated time, “Libby” and “Abby” weren’t there. After waiting and the girls still didn’t arrive, family contacted police and the search began–with community members joining forces with police to look for the pair. No AMBER Alert was issued in this case because it wasn’t believed that the girls had been abducted or were in extreme danger. We expect to learn whose bodies were found after the autopsies are complete.
In another case where a statewide AMBER Alert was issued, that alert has been cancelled because the 15-year-old teen reported missing from Gary on Monday is now safe. Chastinea Reeves, who was believed to be in extreme danger was found in Gary Tuesday afternoon. No other details have been released about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.
The almost-week-long search for an infant, allegedly abducted by his own mother, is now over. Indianapolis Metro Police say Regina Williams walked into the City-County Building in downtown Indy on Tuesday and turned herself and her five-month-old son in. Police were looking for Williams–thinking she’d fled the state for near-by Louisville, Kentucky taking her child with her. They say she has an open warrant for child neglect. The baby is fine, according to officials, and is in custody of Child Protective Services.
Homeowners in Fishers are on high alert following two break-ins. Officials say the burglaries happened in broad-daylight on Monday in the Cherry Hills and Sunblest neighborhoods, which rest only a couple of miles apart. Both homeowners reported missing jewelry from their houses. Police believe the burglars were able to get into each home by kicking in the front doors.
