Murder investigation after bodies discovered of two teen girls last seen on Snapchat
Two teenage girls whose whereabouts were last seen on Snapchat have now been identified as the victims of a double murder.
The bodies of the 13-year-old girls, who went missing on Monday, were discovered on Tuesday.
However, it was not until Wednesday that authorities confirmed the remains were of missing Indiana teenagers Liberty German (14) and Abigail Williams (13).
"It is disturbing," Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said at a press conference, People reported.
"There is somebody out there that did do this crime and we’re going to track them down."
The bodies were found by authorities less than a mile from where they were last seen alive.
Family reported the girls missing on Monday evening after they were dropped off to go hiking near an abandoned railway bridge.
During the walk, Liberty posted an image of Abigail walking on the bridge to Snapchat.
The friends were meant to be picked up by a family member later, but they never showed at the agreed time.
Police have now launched a murder investigation.
