INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – Indiana State Police are trying to keep the double murders of Libby German and Abby Williams in the public eye and clearing up some misinformation.

On Monday, the Liberty German family and Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter appeared on a live segment of the Megyn Kelly TODAY show to help keep the double homicide of Liberty German and Abigail Williams in the public eye.  Late last year there was a similar appearance on the Dr. PHIL show.

According to Indiana State Police, as part of the families’ efforts to develop investigative leads, information has been shared with numerous police agencies across the nation.  One agency in Tennessee shared the information on their Facebook Site and added verbiage that stated, “FBI has extended the search into south eastern Tennessee counties including Bledsoe”.  In fact, this is a NATION WIDE search for the person or persons wanted for the murders of Abby and Libby.  The Bledsoe County Sheriff’s Department has updated their Facebook site which now states, “To Clarify this suspect HAS NOT BEEN SEEN IN BLEDSOE COUNTY or any other counties in Tn. It is a nationwide search.”

The timing of the original Bledsoe County Sheriff’s Department Facebook post and the live airing on the Megyn Kelly TODAY show resulted in misinformation being shared on the show.

Indiana State Police say that on behalf of all the law enforcement agencies working on this active homicide investigation, they are grateful to the media and other police agencies for sharing the family poster about these murders.  ISP says it is confident someone knows who was responsible for these murders and encourage them to come forward with their tip information.  The tip phone number is 844-459-5786 and callers may remain anonymous.  Tips can also be sent by email to [email protected]
