Possible Major Break in the Delphi Murders Case

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 1:

I am getting tired of saying this over and over, but most of the material below is made up of rumors and my own opinions and theories. None of that is represented as fact. Furthermore, I am not using rumors as reliable sources as has been alleged. I never said they were reliable sources. How reliable is a rumor? That’s for you to determine, but in general a rumor is not considered to be a reliable source, and they are not treated as such below. 

Also when I say I am 100% sure of something, that means that I am 100% sure of it in my own mind. All of us are 100% sure of all sorts of things we cannot prove. That’s the nature of the human condition. We simply assume many things are facts until proven otherwise. Now many of these things that I was completely certain of were later proven to be wrong. Such is the case with many other things people become certain of in their own mind. Once again, when I say I am sure or certain or 100% certain, it means only that I am sure in my own mind. I am not stating that any of these things are facts. They are simply my convictions. Any of all of these firmly held beliefs of mine about this case could possibly will later prove to be false.

The only thing that is represented as fact are statements sourced from LE or the media. If you have issues with rumors, theories, opinions. etc., just quit reading right now and save yourself the heartache. 

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 2:

I thought I made this one thing perfectly clear as Richard Nixon used to say:

I have no sources whatsoever among the families of the girls.

I have no sources whatsoever in LE, local or otherwise. 

There ya go.

What I do have is sources close to the families. These people generally live in Delphi and the surrounding region. So that makes my rumors even more hearsay. I’m not even talking to the families. I am talking to people who talk to the families!

Of course I have no LE sources. I thought I made that clear. Never have. Yes, I have talked to some of them, but of course they didn’t tell me a thing. A couple of times they told me that a certain person was a POI or that a certain person had been cleared with an airtight alibi. I suppose they don’t mind giving out that information. But other than that, they don’t tell me jack. It’s hard enough to even get them to call you back. I think if I asked them if my name was Robert Lindsay, they would say, “I am sorry, but I cannot comment on matters relating to an ongoing investigation.” That’s how bad it is.

So what do I have? Once again, I have sources who are close to LE. They get their information from LE, then they talk to me. So once again this is even more hearsay, as I am not even talking to LE but to the people who are talking to LE.

I really wish people would quit claiming I have LE or family sources. I just don’t. If you think I have these sources, just quit reading my stuff right now and go away. You will not be missed!

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 3: The lies never end. The latest is “Lindsay takes other people’s theories and claims they are his own.” Of course I don’t. This website is nothing but a compendium of rumors from all over the Net regarding this crime. I go through the rumors and try to rank them on a scale of weak to strong. I compare them against other rumors to see which one is better. All sorts of theories have been flying around since day one. I report those too.

The theories are really just more rumors. I’d say the vast majority of the rumor theories reported here were thought up by other people. I find most of my theories on other sites about this crime. That’s how it works, you know. You get theories about the crime from others. Yes, you use your own theories and you use other people’s theories. I really do not have time to down through the list of theories and say where I got them from. I have come up with a few of my own, but even with those, I guess someone else thought of them first. Also a lot of the theories here are also the result of constant brainstorming I do with my fellow sleuths.

In the past few days, no less than three online discussions of the Delphi murders have been shut down. The first one was a thread on he vast thread on Websleuths that was taken down due to “no significant developments in the case.” It is quite unusual for Websleuths to lock down a huge thread like that. Next, a Topix thread which ran to over 200 pages went down. Then a large thread on the murders on Reddit was taken down. Only administrators can take down Reddit threads. All three threads went down on Friday around the same time.

So why were three huge Delphi threads taken down at three large websites all around the same time?

It doesn’t make sense unless LE asked them to take it down.

In addition, people who monitor police scanners say all of Carroll County LE activity today has been removed from the scanner. That’s quite unusual.

Also a person has posted on social media that a friend of theirs works for the FBI, and the agent told the poster on Saturday that he was leaving for Indiana on work business.

All of this implies a possible major break in the case.

Meanwhile, we at Beyond Highbrow feel that we identified the man on the bridge a few weeks ago. We have since assembled quite a bit of good albeit circumstantial evidence against this POI. Whether there is enough against this man to justify a warrant, much less an arrest, God forbid charges, I have no idea.

First of all, we believe that the Delphi Killer may be a serial killer. We believe that the Delphi killings may not have been his first murders. He may have committed up to five or more murders before then, possibly in a short period of time.

We have reason to believe that another person may have been involved in the crime and helped the man on the bridge. We do not know his role in the crime, and we have no idea who is, but we believe there may be a second suspect in this crime.

We now have a lot of good details about what happened in the crime, but we are not releasing those right now as they are rather gruesome. Perhaps in a later post. However, we can release some details. Much of what was said was done to the girls has turned out to be bad rumors. We are finally getting information straight from people who found the bodies, so this is probably more reliable.

The theory that Abbie was speared with a stake is completely up for grabs. That may be a bad rumor.

We are still trying to confirm the story of whether or not Abbie was pregnant. At the moment we are unable to confirm this rumor. But we are also unable to say it is not true. This rumor is completely up in the air then. Maybe it is true, and maybe it is not.

We believe that an initial, the letter K, was carved or burned into the chest of one of the girls. It may also have been written all over the crime scene. In that case, the crime scene was not the area where the bodies were found. There is talk of a kill site somewhere other than where the bodies were left, but we do not know where it is.

We are unable to confirm the rumor that the Mears barn was used in the crime. Perhaps it was, perhaps it wasn’t.

We believe that the entire crime was over in an hour and was recorded on Libby’s audiotape.

We believe that most of the 40 minute tape is boring, consisting of footfalls in the forest and muffled voices conversing. There’s not much to hear.

We no longer believe that a second vehicle was used in the crime or that the girls were placed in a vehicle after the “Down the hill” order was given.

We are uncertain whether the girls were removed from the forest, taken elsewhere, and then returned by being dragged down a trail in the early AM. Perhaps it happened that way, perhaps it did not.

We believe that there was definitely a sexual aspect to this crime, but we will not go into it now as it is rather lurid. Perhaps later.

We believe that one girl’s throat was cut with something sharp, either a knife or a garrot, and her head was nearly decapitated. This girl was found nude with her upper body covered with forest litter as if the killer was trying to conceal her. She also had the letter initial carved into her chest.

We believe that the other girl was killed by stab wounds to the heart and to a vein in her throat. Death would have been quite swift. This girl was dressed, possibly after she was killed. She was also posed.

We believe the killer is a White man between the ages of 50-55 who is local to the surrounding area but not a Delphi resident. We believe he grew up in Delphi near the crime scene and that is how he knew it so well. We believe he may be Amish but was shunned by the community, so he became a shunned Amish. We believe he may have ridden horses a lot when he was younger. We also feel that he has deep ties to the local Amish community.

In order to bolster our case against our POI, we have assembled a lot of photographic and even some video evidence to bolster our case, in addition to many witness statements. The photos and videos are over a four year period and they are all dated.

We believe we were in communication with the killer for a while. We believe that the killer inserted himself into the investigation in a huge way and even posted on a number of Delphi murders forums under different names.

We believe we know the vehicle that was used in the case, and we have obtained several photographs of that vehicle with the POI next to it that were shot in Delphi on the morning of February 13 about eight hours before the crime. The woman who took the photos was suspicious of the man, and this why the photos were taken. Although the witness believes it another person, she is not certain who it is. She thinks he comes from the north, and his name is one of four names. We do not agree with the witness. We believe that the man in that photo may be the man on the bridge, and we definitely believe the car photographed was the car used in the crime.

We believe that the vehicle used in the case was a late model white Dodge Dart with paper plates. We think it was a rental car. The vehicle was observed at the crime scene around the time of the crime and also photographed in Delphi eight hours before the crime.

We also believe that LE did not retain Libby’s phone. The killer took her phone and disposed of it. We believe that the phone may be in the gravel pit lake on the Mears property 1/2 mile from the crime scene. We think he threw the phone into the lake. We believe the lake should be drained, or they should have a dive team go down there to look for that phone. If LE won’t do it, maybe the Mears should drain the lake themselves.

We also suspect that the Delphi Killer may have been involved in the arson killings of four Black girls in Flora, Indiana several months before. The fire was originally thought to be accidental, but it was later stated that it might have been arson. We believe it was an arson fire.

We also are very concerned for the safety of Karena McClerkin, an 18 year old Black girl who went missing in October 2016 from Kokomo, Indiana not too far from Delphi or Flora. As of February 5, we believe she was still alive but was being kept prisoner somewhere against her will. However, by March 23, the news about her got much darker. We fear that she may be dead, and the only reason she is still called missing is because her body has not been found yet. We believe this due to witness statements we have obtained regarding her imprisonment and fate. We also feel that the Delphi Killer, in addition to being involved in the Flora Fire, may have killed Karena McClerkin.

We would love more than anything to be wrong about the fate of Ms. McClerkin, and we have no solid evidence of whether she is dead or alive, but the things we have been hearing are not good. Let’s hope they are just bad rumors.

The motives for the Delphi murders are not known, nor is the motive for the Flora Fire known, although racism is a possibility. If Ms. McClerkin is a victim, we have no motive in that case either.

But we feel that one man, the Delphi Killer, may be responsible for up to seven homicides in the area around Kokomo, Indiana in a four month period. This would make him quite a prolific serial killer.

A few other things.

The killer smokes cigarillos, and is in fact smoking one in the photo.

We also have photos of our POI on 2-12 the day before the crime and on 2-14 the day after the crime. The photos may be significant to the case.

The killer is left-handed.

We know a lot of other things that we should not discuss right now because we are trying to be sensitive to the investigation.

Of course we have asked LE to look at all of our evidence.

CP Story from High School

One of the players in the Delphi murders drama has been a young man named CP. Like so many people including yours truly,  he was briefly considered a possible suspect in the killings. I never thought  much of this theory. We quickly learned that he had a rock solid alibi for the time of the murders, as he was at Subaru at work. Along with his father, he was present at the search for the girls at 5:30 PM. He may have been part of the family group that came back at midnight and searched until 2:30 AM. Hence there is no way whatsoever that he could have been involved in this mess.

I will not go over the theory of why people thought he might be involved in the crime or any other criminal matters regarding CP. Other than a string of drunk driving offenses, there is no good hard evidence that he has ever committed a serious offense.

Some people are still suspicious of him and today I was sent a story he wrote back in high school where he turns into a murderous monster,  apparently to show that he had some homicidal fantasies or potential at least. People can investigate this P family all they wish. As far as I am concerned, they are all innocent.

Which leads us to a story that CP wrote in high school about him transforming into a murderous monster. I thought it was going to be some dark, disturbing stuff, but really it wasn’t. I really was not expecting much from this story and I was getting ready to cringe. I figured CP was a dumb redneck like the rest of  them.

Cody’s story here.

Boy was I wrong!

This is a fine little piece of writing! And my pet peeves, poor grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. are mostly absent. He needs a bit of a light edit, but not much and good writers I work with a lot need about as much of an edit as he does.

I was stunned that this is a very good story! CP can actually spin a fine little tale and his writing style shows skill and smoothness. He kept the narrative going well and didn’t flash back and forth between tenses.

CP can actually write quite well, especially for a high school kid! What do you know.  I never thought he had it in him.

I have no idea how smart he is, but if he is intelligent enough to write well and construct this nice tight little tail, he’s as smart as he needs to be, and that’s all that matters in this world.

A lot of people out there are nice writers just waiting to unleash their potential.

A tip of the hat to CP of Delphi, Indiana for a job well done.

Why Many People from Indiana Do Not Seem Well-Educated

I hate to say it, but I have noticed that a lot of folks from that part of rural Indiana around Delphi cannot spell, punctuate or use grammar to save their lives. Many can barely write a proper English paragraph.

Indiana has a low rate of college graduation, something like 11%. That’s very much on the low side for the US.

It’s not much that the people there are dumb. They’re probably around as smart as anywhere. But I have been told that most people in Indiana who are college material either leave the state for university or go to university in Indiana and then leave the state for work. So what is happening is that plenty of bright people are being born and brought up in the state, but most of them are taking off around college age for school and later for work.

So what’s left is a lot of people with a high school education who can’t write English very well.

In their defense, I would say that if you live in a town like that, you simply do not need a university degree, and you sadly you don’t even need to be able to write a proper English paragraph. The jobs that are available there mostly don’t care how well you write and a degree is not needed for most of the jobs. No one cares if you can’t write proper English, so there is no social penalty for not writing well. Humans are basically lazy. If there’s no overriding reason to learn something, they usually don’t bother. Instead humans are adaptive. They learn whatever they need to learn to do whatever they need to do. Anything more is seen as superfluous and a waste of time. Some people like me learn things as a near-sensual activity, but I’m not a normal or typical person and most folks don’t have that same attitude towards learning new things.

They are being raised in working class communities where the emphasis is just to graduate high school and go get yourself a job. There’s no premium or status given to intelligence, education, erudition or knowledge.

So this tends to discourage people from self-educating themselves, which believe it or not, even people like me have done a lot of.

A Lot of Liberals and Leftists Hate Criminals Too You Know

Carol: Hey, “retards” is word of the week here! I can take credit for that by mentioning “Trumptard” just prior to all the retard posts. Fun fact: many Snapchat Murder websleuths happen to be Trumptards. Why is that do you think, Robert?

In part it is because they are from that Godforsaken hillbilly red state. The whole state seems to have been hit by a Retard Virus if you ask me. The people in that state are not very educated. Their college graduation rate I believe is only 11%, and that is on the low end of US states. They seem to cultivate ignorance in that place and most people seem to be aggressively or even belligerently ignorant. They are actually arrogant and defiant about their ignorance.

I do not know what we are going to do about states like that. I want to say they are beyond hope, but that is probably not true. My Mom said that state has been conservative forever somehow, but that is probably not true. However, the state has been conservative for a very long time. 50-60 years ago, they commonly elected Democrats, but that’s not the case anymore. I imagine the Reagan Democrats were very big here as they were throughout the Rust Belt. All of this may be because this state was heavily populated by White Southerners, especially people from Appalachia moving north maybe for jobs and such a the same time many Blacks were moving north from for the same reason in the mid 20th Century. There were a lot of industrial jobs up there that attracted Southerners looking for work.

Web sleuths tend to be rightwingers. That is because they have the Cop Personality and they really hate criminals.It’s too bad and I think it shows how we on the Left have screwed up. If you hate criminals so much you want to be a detective, you cannot possibly be a liberal or on the Left. Because you know the Left is soft on crime, they are bleeding hearts and they want to set all the criminals free and let them all out early. It’s sad. I hate criminals and I actually think like a cop (more like a detective) and I am on the Left.

These people don’t get it. Go back to Stalin’s USSR, Mao’s China, Ho’s Vietnam, or Castro’s Cuba and try to commit some common crime. I mean like theft. God forbid burglary. Or God help you some violent crime.

The Commie regimes were absolutely vicious in their treatment of street criminals, and even worse towards violent criminals. Were they anti-cop? Hell, they were damned Police STATES for Chrissakes. They were practically run by cops.

True some liberals are bleeding hearts and have been associated with some sentence reduction, but actually that has been much exaggerated. A lot so-called bleeding heart-ism was just common sense like opposition to the death penalty.

I think we need to bring back the idea that a lot of us liberals really hate criminals too, violent ones especially. Or that it would be OK to be a detective or even a street cop and vote Democrat. Cops used to vote Democrat back East at least until 1980 or so. Or maybe it started in the 1960’s. They were often White ethnics who saw themselves properly as members of the working class so they voted for the party of the working class White ethnics, the Democrats.

Rumors, Facts and My Delphi Updates: Clearing Up Some Lies

Also, are we 100% certain about the details of the crime scene (e.g. cause of death, condition of the bodies, etc)? LE has not released those details to the public. I know other commenters say they know things with 100% certainty, but that simply is not true at this point. Inaccurate rumors, false accusations, and mistaken identities have led us down some bizarre paths and away from the truth. All I am saying is that any claims of having factual knowledge about this crime should be taken with a grain of salt.

I would say that we can quote a number of things in pretty complete confidence. Obviously both girls had their throats cut, either by garroting or knife. I would say that the throat-cutting was certainly fatal to Libby, and we are not sure about Abbie. Libby was almost decapitated by the attack, which to me implies garroting. Both of the girls were either nude or semi-nude. Libby had defensive wounds all over her body. Libby had material under nails. Dirt, blood or flesh, no one seems to know. Dirt at the very least. Libby surely died earlier than Abbie, but maybe not by a lot.

The stake theory has not been proven and may not even be true. We are trying to verify that theory as best we can write now because there are people stating it was false.

The Abbie was pregnant theory has not been proven either and it may be just a rumor.

The common theory about the girls dying on different days may not be true.

The mutilation or sexual mutilation theory may not be true.

Let me clarify. The only things that are verified are statements of LE and the media. Everything else is rumor with a capital R. It is true that I regard a number of the rumors as simply true, but that doesn’t mean they are true, OK? It simply means that they are true as far as I am concerned. In my opinion, they are true.

There are even some things where I say I am 100% certain that something is true. A statement of opinion, not fact. I do not know about the rest of you, but I like to be right or wrong about things in daily life. I do not want to walk around being some uncertain scientists with everything in my quotidian existence. I cannot count the number of times I was 100% certain of things that later turned out to be wrong. I had simply decided that my mind was made up about the truth of some matter. But that didn’t mean it was true! It just meant it was true in my mind, or true as far as I was concerned!

Absolutely take anything stated as rumor in my posts with a grain of salt as small or huge as you like. Or you are free to form your own OPINION of the my matter where you agree with me that something is true or you even feel as certain about something as I do. You may feel to varying degrees that I am wrong and full of crap. Or of course you can always be a pure scientist and just say you don’t know.

“Lindsay represents rumors as fact” is one of the biggest lies out there about me. It’s just not true and I am really getting sick and tired of all these people lying about me all the time. I am about this far from hitting someone. These people talking like this better hope they never meet me in real life is all I have to say.

But other than that, they don’t tell me jack. It’s hard enough to even get them to call you back. I think if I asked them if my name was Robert Lindsay, they would say, “I am sorry, but I cannot comment on matters relating to an ongoing investigation.” That’s how bad it is.

So what do I have? Once again, I have sources who are close to LE. They get their information from LE, then they talk to me. So once again this is even more hearsay, as I am not even talking to LE but to the people who are talking to LE.

I really wish people would quit claiming I have LE or family sources. I just don’t. If you think I have these sources, just quit reading my stuff right now and go away. You will not be missed!

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 3: The lies never end. The latest is “Lindsay takes other people’s theories and claims they are his own.” Of course I don’t. This website is nothing but a compendium of rumors from all over the Net regarding this crime. I go through the rumors and try to rank them on a scale of weak to strong. I compare them against other rumors to see which one is better. All sorts of theories have been flying around since day one. I report those too.

The theories are really just more rumors. I’d say the vast majority of the rumor theories reported here were thought up by other people. I find most of my theories on other sites about this crime.

Also a lot of the theories here are also the result of constant brainstorming I do with my fellow sleuths.

Jimmy Conway: This blog is very informative, and Robert is very good at what he does in terms of digging into the crime. I see his name mentioned on other sites as well. That means that people are reading this blog.

However, I think that readers get immediately turned off by Robert’s continual requests for money. Some of the comments I have seen elsewhere have ridiculed Robert unfairly because of it.

I realize that this is Robert’s only source of income at this time and the loyal following is keeping him afloat, but just as many people refuse to take what he says seriously because of the money issue…so instead of asking new members to donate why not create a pinned post at the top of each page topic indicating that this is his only source of income, perhaps with a Paypal link so people can easily donate that way.

It’s not my only source of income. I have a trust fund, but it is only a very small check every month. It started out at $700,000, but they dole it out bit by bit, so it seems like a lot less. It’s close to a poverty level wage. I have been getting it since 18 and it is a spendthrift trust, so I cannot touch it. It’s all up to the trustees. They control the whole pile.

With a pinned post at the top, too many people will see that and just leave and not even see the latest posts.

Once you donate, I never bug you again. And all Delphi commenters are exempt from normal rules that all regular commenters must donate minimum $10 to keep commenting. I never bother people repeatedly for money. I ask you once. If you don’t donate, fine. If you want me to not bug you, just give me minimum $10 bucks or so, and I will never pester you again. Easy peasy.

They can ridicule me all they want. Apparently they believe in working for free. Ask them if they work for free. Ask them if they go to their jobs and refuse the money the boss offers, instead saying they would rather work for free. Ask them if they run their own business, and if so, if they refuse to make money off their business, instead opting to work for free.

Ask them if it’s ok for me to ridicule them for asking their boss to pay them for their work. That’s what they are doing for me. Am I the only worker who is supposed to work for free while everyone else is paid for their labor?

I do not ask all new posters for money. Some of them I do, but that is selective. If you start emailing me, you will get hit up.

I do some work outside of this site, but that has dried up at the moment. I worked my whole life, but became ill 21 years ago and have not worked full-time since. I tried to work for a while after I got sick, but I was going to kill myself in order to keep working. It was work and die or quit work and live, so I quit.

I cannot work full-time for a stranger. I might be able to work casual jobs for a friend or family on very flexible hours.

Indeed I do have degrees and credentials as my critics ridicule me for having, but they are pretty useless at the moment.

I worked my whole life before this and have held a lot of interesting positions: teacher, paralegal, magazine editor, freelance writer, book author, linguist, psychological counselor, web page designer, and a lot of lower level working class jobs.

If I did not have the trust fund, I would have to try for disability.

The thing is that of all the mentions of this site outside of this blog, at least 95%+ of them are negative. I almost never see one positive comment about this site on any outside link. All remarks on Topix are negative. All remarks on Reddit are negative. Well, they can all just fuck right off.

This is by far the highest traffic site on the Net for this crime. This site was recently quoted in the MSM on the matter of this crime. The editor of the very high traffic site interviewed me on the phone and then quoted me in her article. I also recently had an offer to go on a TV show about this crime.

They can make fun of me and hate me all they want. Are they getting offers to go on TV and talk about this crime as experts? Are they being interviewed by large media outlets as experts for stories about this crime? They are not. Not one of them is. They call me a loser.

Sounds like sour grapes.

I have the biggest website on this crime.

I am the only Net writer who gets TV offers to go on as an expert on this crime.

I am the only net writer who gets interviewed and quoted as an expert on this crime.

I’m the success. They’re the failures.

I’m the winner. They’re the losers.

And I do work with LE on this crime. I have worked with two detectives so far. I call them, and they call me.

What do I do for them? Give them tips about the crime, same as everyone else does.

I also write up reports for them about suspects. I wrote up a 15 page report on one POI, and they took it seriously and fact checked the whole thing. Last I heard they said he was a suspect, and they wanted to talk to him.

I just called in two more tips today and in the last 36 hours, and I will probably talk to someone tomorrow.

Let them laugh and make fun of me all they want. You can’t compromise success.

I’m winning; they’re losing.

New Vehicle of Interest in the Delphi Murders Case

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 1:

I am getting tired of saying this over and over, but most of the material below is made up of rumors and my own opinions and theories. None of that is represented as fact. Furthermore, I am not using rumors as reliable sources as has been alleged. I never said they were reliable sources. How reliable is a rumor? That’s for you to determine, but in general a rumor is not considered to be a reliable source, and they are not treated as such below. 

Also when I say I am 100% sure of something, that means that I am 100% sure of it in my own mind. All of us are 100% sure of all sorts of things we cannot prove. That’s the nature of the human condition. We simply assume many things are facts until proven otherwise. Now many of these things that I was completely certain of were later proven to be wrong. Such is the case with many other things people become certain of in their own mind. Once again, when I say I am sure or certain or 100% certain, it means only that I am sure in my own mind. I am not stating that any of these things are facts. They are simply my convictions. Any of all of these firmly held beliefs of mine about this case could possibly will later prove to be false.

The only thing that is represented as fact are statements sourced from LE or the media. If you have issues with rumors, theories, opinions. etc., just quit reading right now and save yourself the heartache. 

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 2:

I have no sources whatsoever in LE, local or otherwise. 

There ya go.

Most of my family sources are simply sources close to the families. These people generally live in Delphi and the surrounding region. So that makes my rumors even more hearsay. I’m mostly not even talking to the families. I am talking to people who are talking to the families!

Of course I have no LE sources. I thought I made that clear. Never have. Yes, I have talked to some of them, but of course they didn’t tell me a thing. A couple of times they told me that a certain person was a POI or that a certain person had been cleared with an airtight alibi. I suppose they don’t mind giving out that information. But other than that, they don’t tell me jack. It’s hard enough to even get them to call you back. I think if I asked them if my name was Robert Lindsay, they would say, “I am sorry, but I cannot comment on matters relating to an ongoing investigation.” That’s how bad it is.

So what do I have? Once again, I have sources who are close to LE. They get their information from LE, then they talk to me. So once again this is even more hearsay, as I am not even talking to LE but to the people who are talking to LE.

I really wish people would quit claiming I have LE sources. I just don’t. If you think I have these sources, just quit reading my stuff right now and go away. You will not be missed!

NOTE TO COMMENTERS 3: The lies never end. The latest is “Lindsay takes other people’s theories and claims they are his own.” Of course I don’t. This website is nothing but a compendium of rumors from all over the Net regarding this crime. I go through the rumors and try to rank them on a scale of weak to strong. I compare them against other rumors to see which one is better. All sorts of theories have been flying around since day one. I report those too.

The theories are really just more rumors. I’d say the vast majority of the rumor theories reported here were thought up by other people. I find most of my theories on other sites about this crime. That’s how it works, you know. You get theories about the crime from others. Yes, you use your own theories and you use other people’s theories. I really do not have time to down through the list of theories and say where I got them from. I have come up with a few of my own, but even with those, I guess someone else thought of them first. Also a lot of the theories here are also the result of constant brainstorming I do with my fellow sleuths.

A number of suspect vehicles have been suggested to be connected to these murders. I will list them.

Make/Model                               Status 

Red Ford Mustang                         Unknown
Black car                                Unknown, dubious
White van                                Unknown, dubious
Red truck                                Unknown, dubious
Light colored coupe                      Unknown, may not exist
1970's grey Mercedes Benz                Exists, cleared
Late model Dodge Dart with paper plates  Suspect vehicle, VOI

After considering a number of vehicles for months without conclusive evidence of involvement, we* now feel that we have a Vehicle of Interest in the last vehicle, the late model Dodge Dart with paper plates.

None of the other vehicles have gone much of anywhere. The light colored coupe is said to be visible in the photo of Abbie on the bridge. However, the car is very hard to make out in the photo, and many say it does not even exist. If it does exist, it would be a suspect vehicle, as it was on the south side of the bridge parked on a little used access road.

As part of a dead theory about a botched abortion of one girl by relatives of the boy who may have impregnated her, we looked at a family called the S family. We did this erroneously as we had the wrong name of Abbie’s boyfriend. BS Junior is a former boyfriend of Abbie’s who is now just a friend, but we thought he was the current boyfriend. He was supposed to meet the girls that day and that in itself is quite interesting. I do not believe that BS Junior was involved in any way in the crime.

We considered BS Senior as part of this theory for a while. He is very large and looks pretty tough. In one photo he has a knife sheathed to his belt and air of menace about him. He weights a good 280 pounds. BS Senior has a minor criminal record. BS Senior put his silver Mercedes Benz up for sale very soon after the crime along with such strange items as a claw hammer, shoes, etc. My sources in Delphi felt that his putting that car up for sale so soon after the murders was very suspicious, hence BS Senior became a suspect in their theory. There is some other interesting possible evidence involving BS Senior I will not go into now.

He was on our radar too until the theory of his motive – stopping an unwanted pregnancy – was blown to smithereens. With no motive, it is hard to imagine why MS and BS Senior would do such a crime. They do not seem to be the types of men who would rape and murder teenage girls for kicks. After a lot of kibbutzing with each other, we decided to drop BS Senior and MS as POI’s. If BS Senior is dumped as a POI, his putting the vehicle up for sale right after the crime, while interesting, is probably just a coincidence. And now we are not even sure that a light-colored coupe was used in the crime. With no motive, BS Senior’s vehicle and presumably the other items such as the claw hammer and the shoes and the fact that they were put up for sale soon after the murders are not relevant to the crime.

I believe that BS Senior and MS are innocent of the murders of Abbie Williams and Liberty German.

I will elaborate on our clearing them in a post coming hopefully soon. It should have photos, etc. Persons of the S family may now please stop threatening to sue me for libel. BS Junior, a mere boy of 13, was never suspected by anyone anyway. In my opinion, the whole family is off the hook mostly due to a lack of motive, as the original theory of their motive burned up.

Scenario

I believe the girls were ordered down the hill by the killer. When they got to the bottom of the hill, an altercation took place. I believe he beat them with his pistol. This is the part in the tape where the girls suddenly start screaming.

Subdued by the pistol blows, the girls were tied up and placed in a vehicle parked on the little used road on the south side of the bridge. This is a former access road for bridge workers. Bridge Guy possibly had the help of another man who may have participated in the crime. The girls were probably bundled into the trunk. The vehicle was rapidly driven out that road and onto several other roads until it got to the north side of the bridge, where it turned into the Mears property and drove into the Mears barn, the kill site. The Mears in the house nearest that barn were gone that day, and the killers may well have known that. Ron Logan was also gone that afternoon, and the killers may well have known that too.

Finally, a Vehicle of Interest

There would have had to have been two vehicles used. The White Dart with paper plates may be Bridge Guy’s vehicle. It was seen parked at the trailhead at the exact time Bridge Guy was accosting the girls on the bridge. Although we cannot prove that Bridge Guy arrived in that vehicle, I believe that this late model Dart with paper plates should certainly be seen as a vehicle of interest. LE has not mentioned anything about this vehicle, but I believe they should. Even if they don’t, others should be watching and jogging their memories about such a vehicle.

*We refers to the hive mind consisting of me and my fellow sleuths who work on this case with me. We bounce ideas off of each other all the time, and almost all of my theories are in part their theories too. It’s a group effort of putting a number of brains together to solve a problem, and it seems to work well. Similarly, statements such as “we are clearing them” simply means that our group no longer considers these people suspects. We can’t clear anyone; only LE can do that. It just means that they are cleared in our minds.
