Really nasty sexually-motivated double homicide of two teenage girls, one 13 and the other 14. For some background on this heartbreaking case, see here.
I like to do “sleuthing” in my part time. Although it’s gruesome, playing detective is a bit of a hobby of mine, and it is engrossing in some odd say. I believe I am also somewhat psychic – not highly psychic but instead somewhat psychic like many people. I get visions and powerful somantic visions/sensations like getting punched in the face, being knocked over, having laser beams shot at me, cold chills, eyes boring into my skull, my stomach sinking to my feet, etc.
The psi is stuff is variable. It’s often wrong, but it’s also right sometimes. I organize my life by this psi stuff. I am also very good at reading people to where I can almost read minds if someone is near me and interacting with me. I can’t tell what you are thinking, but I can at times tell what message you are trying to convey to me nonverbally. This sensation is not telepathic but instead semi-telepathic. It is hard to explain. I can figure people out pretty well and I can usually get good reads on someone.
I also engage in a lot of feminine intuitive thinking and “Gestalt” thinking. Gestalt is hard to explain, but holistic is a good way to look at it. It means the sum is greater than the whole of its parts. It means “I know it when I see it, but I cannot explain how.” It means getting the “sense” or “smell” or “feel” about something. It is a way of “putting it all together” and “connecting the dots,” and “seeing the forest and missing the trees instead of the other way around.”
I think this way because while I have a very strong masculine side to my brain, I also have a big feminine side too, and in many ways, I think like women and understand how they think. This is fun, and it enables me to get along with them well. In fact, I would much rather be around women then men. Women’s intuition is a true genius particular to the female brain. Do not underemphasize it. Women are just as smart as men, but men are more logical, so we think they are stupid. However, women also think men are stupid. We think the opposite sex is stupid because they think in different ways than we do, but this is an illusion.
I would like to throw a lot of stuff out there.
My Musings on This Case and a Criminal Profile of Unsub
The girls were tied up, I believe with a rope. LE may have retained some rope with DNA. Also initial reports said the girls were found in a cabin or shack. Rumors came from family members and were the first reports about the case. The rumors were released 1.5 hours before the media released info. However, as of now, there is no proof that the girls were found in a structure, though that does solve some problems.
I fear that the nature of this crime is quite gruesome. Just the bare facts of the crime itself are ugly enough, but I am afraid that once we learn the details, it is going to be worse. Horror movie stuff.
I believe that Libby was killed on 2-13, possibly pretty quickly, and Abby was killed (or died) or 2-14. “Or died” is important. I know this because the published obits state those dates. There is a rumor that the families chose those dates as death dates, but that would apply only to funerals, not obits. Obit info would come straight from coroner report. Therefore, coroner report had to state different death dates. There is a rumor that Abbie survived the initial attack but died later on of hypothermia. It may be valid.
When the search was going on, both phones were dead.
There are claims that the photo of Abbie on the bridge shows the killer hiding below the bridge. Claim is worthless; that is just some shadow.
Probably not a crime of opportunity. He planned very well. He plans his crimes with the utmost meticulation. That is why he is armed with the gun and disguising himself.
Unsub is clearly trying to disguise himself in the photos. He is using a hat and a scarf in front of his face to do this. As stated by LE.
Talk of backpacks and duffle bags makes no sense to me. I do not believe that Unsub had a backpack or a duffel bag, but perhaps he did? At any rate, there was a man dressed in all black seen at the time also. I believe that this man participated in the murders with Unsub. In other words, there were two killers.
There was talk early on of a “father-son killing team.” That sounds completely insane, but my mind keeps going back to it over and over. But there is no evidence for this as yet and it sounds wild.
There is a rumor that Abbie was barely alive when found and died on the way to the hospital. Rumor came straight from family members. However, there is no evidence for this. But the evidence that Abbie lingered at least until after midnight 2-14 may be correct and it solves a lot of problems.Which accounts well for the different dates. Libby on 13th means she died that day. Abbie on 14th I feel means she suffered until the 14th and then died on that day.
In published UK media, grandfather who raised her made an odd statement, “I know Abbie. She put up one Hell of a fight.” This has led to a lot of speculation along the lines of, “What an odd thing to say. He did not say ‘would have put up a fight.’ He said, ‘She did put up a fight.’ How does he know? Was he there?”The grandfather has been cleared. However, I do think that Abbie may have put up quite a strong battle. The reason that the grandfather said she put up a wild fight is because that may be what it says in the medical report. If she fought hard there will be talk of defensive wounds and maybe DNA under her nails. In that case, Unsub may have scratch marks. My theory is that Abbie put up such a wild fight that she hurt him and he was not able to slit her throat well. He did a poor job and she lived for some time afterwards, maybe at least seven hours. He also may have gotten disgusted and said, “The Hell with this,” and left the kill site after this wild fight.
I do not believe that LE has any POI at this moment.
The first thing they did was to go around questioning people who were being talked about as possible suspects. They have already cleared a number of people this way. They are also going around to all of the local RSO’s. They wanted them to come talk about the case. While there, they searched their phones and asked them to submit DNA. They are clearing at least some of the RSO’s this way.
The raid was on the property of the old man, Jim Logan, who lives alone and owns the property where the girls were found. He is completely innocent and cleared. I know local police, Indiana SP, and FBI were all there. They stayed there a while because they got some quality evidence there. This poor guy Jim Logan had nothing to do with it.
I believe the gun obviously holstered on the right under the jacket of Unsub was used to control the girls. He also got them to keep quiet, maybe with the gun. However, the believe the gun was used to kill the girls. It would have made too much noise. Rumors that this was not a gun crime are correct.
Yes, the girls were murdered, and I believe they were killed brutally and horribly in such a way that a shot to the head would have been merciful. I do not believe they were strangled. Early rumors stated that both girls had their throats slit. I believe that the crime scene was a bloody and ugly mess, a real horrorshow. Funerals were open casket and witnesses stated that both girls had scarves covering their necks, more to cover something up than as clothing, Libby also had small wounds in many places on her body, and her face had been somewhat injured.
This is obviously a sexually motivated offense. Initial reports said both girls were raped. There is no evidence that this is true, but Abbie was definitely raped. Whether Libby got raped is not known and there are problems with the theory. The target was probably Abbie. Liberty was just in the way. I believe that Liberty may have been killed quite quickly. One theory is that he kept Abbie alive overnight to use her, but there is no evidence that this occurred. There is no evidence of physical torture in this case.
As a libertine, I do not care if girls this age are sexually active, ok? That means nothing to me. However, I believe that Liberty may have been sexually active but inexperienced. Perhaps she had only had sex one time. Boyfriend may have been a bad boy, tough guy, a macho guy. He may have been a young adult ~ 20 years old. Although this is statutory rape, I think this sort of thing is quite common around there. However, I believe that Abbie was sexually inexperienced with boys and she was still a virgin. These girls were not completely innocent little girl-children like elementary school girls. They were rather worldly teenage girls. Even young teenage girls grow up very fast nowadays with porn and early sexualization and people need to get used to teenagers as sexual beings with free agency. It should not be illegal for teen minors to have sex with each other.
In California, teens may not be arrested for having sex unless it is bad like forcible rape. Childhood sex play goes on all the time and LE should not get involved. In the case of childhood sex play, children should be discouraged from doing this. If it doesn’t stop, I believe they need to go to therapy. I do not believe that most minors are capable of true child molestation. A kid can’t molest another kid. A lot of kids even up to 13-15 have no idea what they are doing and should not be held responsible. In my counseling practice, I hear stories of childhood sex play and even incest, all the way to bisexual behavior and orgies, on a regular basis. LE needs to butt out of this and let this be solved by families or at worst social services.
Unsub is intimately familiar with the area, especially with the bridge area. He goes here on a regular basis alone and with a couple of family members, especially to the Monon Bridge area. Delhi is his “home away from home” and he describes it to people in exactly that way. In recent comments, Unsub stated, “I have spent a LOT of time in Delhi.” He used capital letters. Unsub has made a number of odd and somewhat cryptic and possibly incriminating statements since the killings. He has not left the area. In fact, he may well be taking an active part in the investigation. He may have been monitoring websites where the case is discussed since ~2-15, one day after the killings. He may have started commenting on these sites ~2-20. He may log on in the morning around 9 AM and then again at night ~8-9 PM. Mostly he just lurks, but occasionally he comments. He may be one of the POI’s that have been discussed in these groups cryptically and overtly. When the conversation turns to his POI case, he may perk up and get very interested and start posting a lot. He may say things like, “Hey I live there. What’s his name. I may know this guy.,” or, “I live in that area,” or “That town is 50 miles away.” However, he may also have started making statements to muddy the evidence in the case and to direct suspicion away from him in recent days. That means he is starting to get worried about getting caught.
He may discuss the road he traveled to do the killings and escape. He may have traveled to Delhi from the northwest and then left the same way to the northeast. He may comment on the truck stops along the way of this route. He knows the exact temperature in nearby town(s) and he may post comments correcting people on when they post the wrong temperatures.
Unsub is aged 50-55 based on his photos, voice and other things. He has aged rather well for his age and has not led a rough life. I do not believe this is his first offense. I believe Unsub may have been involved in the Evanston double homicide of two girls aged 8-10. They also disappeared in the woods in a park named after five bridges which are all in the park. There may be railroad bridges there also. They were also found by a stream as in this case. He body dumps near streams.
I have worked up a whole profile on Unsub, but I am too tired to write it down now. Hopefully later.
He quite familiar with the private property where the bodies were found from his frequent trips to the area. Jim Logan was in Lafayette on 2-13, and I believe Unsub knew he would not be there. How he knew this, I have no idea. He knows that Monon area like the back of his hand.
He’s going to lay low for a while. He won’t do any similar crimes in the near future. He’s not that stupid. Nevertheless, I believe he may be involving himself in this investigation somehow. At the very least, he is actively monitoring the case with great interest.
I believe that Unsub absolutely has not left the area, but he has not been back to Delhi since the crimes. He may have made cryptic, oddly incriminating statements to people along the lines of, “I have not been back to Delhi since the killings,” and other funny ways of saying things. He likes to bait people with cryptic comments that can suggest in odd ways that he may have been involved. He thinks this is funny. He loves to play cat and mouse, and he even may enjoy being a POI or even suspect. He believes he is going to get away with these crimes. He believe this because I believe he has been getting away with murder in the area for at least four years. This has made him very arrogant. He was arrogant before, but now he is supremely arrogant. He think he is “God.” I think he may be getting more brazen too because I believe he may have been getting away with murder more than a few times lately. Each time he gets away with it, he gets more arrogant and brazen.
Unsub may be among the POI’s that is being actively discussed on sites about the case.
I will have much more later on, sorry. I still need to work on this profile a lot.
