Delphi Murders Update July 23, 2017: Update on the Crime and a Profile of the Best Delphi Murders Suspect

Posted on the 23 July 2017 by Calvinthedog

This is a profile of a man who we feel is the best suspect in the double murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German in Delphi, Indiana on February 13, 2017. In also contains some new information and a new rundown of the crime itself.

New Information

But first of all, some new important information on a Vehicle of Interest in the  crime and a new photo that shows the Bridge Man stalking the girls.

Vehicle of Interest

A Vehicle of Interest has been identified. It is a late model white Dodge Dart with paper plates. This vehicle was spotted by a witness at the north end of the bridge at 3 PM on the day of the murders. To our knowledge this is the only vehicle at the scene that was not cleared, so we assume it was the Bridge Man’s car. We believe the car was a rental car, and the paper plates were stolen.

This same vehicle was also spotted 7 miles south of Delphi at 7 AM on the morning of the murders at a woman’s home. The suspect was visiting a young man at the woman’s home. The woman thought the suspect looked suspicious, so she photographed him and wrote down his license number. We have that license number, and we have several photographs of this vehicle with the suspect standing next to the trunk.

We believe that the car photographed in this vehicle was the same car used in the crime. We investigated the license plate and traced it back to the nearby city of Kokomo. We believe that the suspect either stole this plate in Kokomo or someone provided it to him. The license number is #G908510. At the time of the crime, the license plate was still valid, but it expired in April. We believe these plates have probably been discarded. This information has been shared with LE, but we have no idea if LE agrees with us that this is the VOI in the crime. This is simply the car that the Beyond Highbrow team of ~200 websleuths believes is the VOI.

We have reason to believe that LE may be interested in this photograph although they have not made any statements to us about these photos. Nevertheless, we feel that if you recognize the man in the photo or if you saw this vehicle or license number around the time of the crime, we think you should notify LE. We also believe that you should give us any such information to us at my email address on the Contact Page.

If you feel you are the man in the photo or if that is your vehicle, then we feel you should go to LE and inform them of that so you are no longer under suspicion. Nevertheless, we have serious doubts that an innocent man, vehicle or license # is being portrayed in this photo.

It is correct that LE has not released any information about this photo, but perhaps they may in the future. Although these photos have been released on some Facebook forums, they have sparked little interest. We have been holding these photos for a long time and were afraid to release for fear of interfering with the investigation. However, with the release of the composite and after thinking long and hard, I am having a hard time understanding how releasing this information harms the case. Instead, it may well prompt more tips. Also, MSM news sites may pick up on this story, which may prompt even more tips. Of course, if LE requests that we take the photos and information down, we will comply.

Photo of Vehicle of Interest (VOI) 1. Photo taken at 7 AM seven miles south of Delphi, Indiana on 2-13-17, eight hours before the Delphi murders occurred in that same town. The person was at a woman’s house visiting a male friend. An identical vehicle was seen at the crime scene at the time of the crime. We believe that this is the photo used by man on the bridge in the crime. We believe that the man in this photo is the man on the bridge. We believe this is a photo of Bridge Man. The license # is written on the photo.

New Photo of the  Bridge Man Stalking  the Girls before the Crime

We believe that the Bridge Man can be seen in Libby’s photo of Abbie walking on the bridge. Although he is very hard to make out, he is hiding behind a tree to her right. We have enlarged the photograph and circled the Bridge Man hiding behind a tree. We feel this is the Bridge Man because the figure behind the tree matched the Bridge Man perfectly in the color of his clothing.

Delphi Murders Update July 23, 2017: Update on the Crime and a Profile of the Best Delphi Murders Suspect

If you study this photo very closely, you will see that the shadow behind the tree is a man shaped figure. Further, the shape of his body is identical to the shape of the man on the bridge’s body. Furthermore, if you look even more closely, you will see that based on the different colors of the clothing of the man in the shadow, the man behind the tree is wearing the exact same colored clothing as the man on the bridge. Therefore, we conclude that the shadow is the man on the bridge watching Abbie on the bridge and stalking her very shortly before the bridge attack.

Delphi Murders Update July 23, 2017: Update on the Crime and a Profile of the Best Delphi Murders Suspect

Here is a second photo from the exact same location as the one with Abbie on the bridge below. Note that there is no shadow hiding behind the tree. Why was it present in one photo but missing in another. A suggestion is that it was a shadow that was only there on that day. That is improbable, and further a blowup of the photo shows that to be false as it shows clearly exactly what that object is.

Delphi Murders Update July 23, 2017: Update on the Crime and a Profile of the Best Delphi Murders Suspect

We believe that this photo shows the man on the bridge hiding behind a tree watching Abbie as she walks on the bridge.

The Actual Murders

Items Owned by the Girls

Several items of jewelry were stolen by the killer and  15-20 in money was also stolen.

There is  a rumor that one girl had a backpack and the killer may have discarded as he was leaving the scene. The backpack has never been found.

We doubt if Libby’s phone was recovered by LE. We believe all of the information on the phone was taken from the Cloud before the phone died. We believe her phone was taken by the killer. We continue to believe that he may have disposed of it in a gravel pit lake on the Mears property next door to Ron Logan’s property. We do not believe that LE has yet searched or drained this lake. They would probably need a serious warrant to do that, and I doubt if the Mears wish to give LE permission to search or drain that lake.

The Audiotape of the Crime

Only six minutes of the 40 minute video is known. After you hear the killer say, “Down the hill,” you hear the sounds of people walking through the forest for several minutes. You also hear the muffled voices of more than one person talking at this time, although it is hard to make out what anyone is saying. Towards the end of the six minutes, you hear the Bridge Man and the girls crossing the creek, which was knee high where they crossed, albeit icy cold.

We believe the actual attack started after the three had crossed the creek. It is unknown what prompted the attack. The first attack consisted of a knife attack to the back of the neck of one of the girls. The victim went right down after this attack. At some around this period, you hear both girls screaming on the audio, probably before the attack took place. Why no one heard these screams is not known. It is not known what is on the rest of the audio, but it appears to consist of the sounds of the two murders taking place. Both murders were apparently caught on audio in full.


The following consists of a number of rumors about how the girls were killed. Most of these rumors have not yet been validated and should be taken with a huge grain of salt. However, the rumors in bold are apparently true to the best of our knowledge:

Probably or Fully True Rumors

Both girls were disrobed either partially or fully. One was naked, but the other had a top on. Both girls were bottomless, and the panties of both girls were found at some distance from the crime scene. Some of the girls’ clothing was found in the creek.

One girl was propped up against a tree in a sitting position.

One girl had the top half of her body covered with leaves.

Blood and dirt under Liberty’s nails. Dirt under Abbie’s nails. Abbie’s nails badly torn up.  One girl has an F carved or burned into her chest.

Police believe that Libby had 4-5 chances to escape, but did not flee because she was so dedicated to her friend that she vowed to not leave her friend in this horrible state with this monster. In real life, they were inseparable.

More Uncertain But Plausible Rumors

At some point, at least one of the girls was stricken with the blunt end of a gun.

At least one of the girls had the back of her head badly bashed in with a heavy object, possibly a rock.

A stake was driven vertically into the abdomen of one of the girls from the killer who was standing over her body. This is another persistent rumor that we have made great efforts to refute but still have not been able to do so.

This stake to the stomach is one of the reasons for the consistent rumors that one of the girls was pregnant. It is not known if either girl was in the early stages of pregnancy, however this is a persistent rumor that we have not been able to refute despite our best efforts to do so. The rumor initially stated that one girl was pregnant, but now it says that other girl was pregnant. Another rumor is that part of the attack was set off by the killer becoming enraged when he found out one girl was pregnant. How he found this out is not known, but perhaps she told him in an effort to spare her life.

The killer used some sort of strong chemical to try to destroy any of his DNA left at the scene.

The killer used shackles to shackle the two girls together, and he may have used chloroform to knock them out.

The girls were  “posed” in the crime scene.

Inconsistent Rumors

There are inconsistent rumors of whether the girls were sexually assaulted or not. One rumor says they were, and in fact, it goes into some detail about what happened during and after the assault. We will not go into the details of this rumor at the moment for obvious reasons. But the latest rumor apparently from an excellent source is that the girls were not sexually assaulted.

The Bridge Man and the Suspect: Too Many Coincidences

We believe that the Bridge Man is wearing boots from the Indiana Packers plant in town. The suspect formerly worked at Indiana Packers for a significant period of time around the period of the mid-80’s to the mid-90’s. He was employed in the maintenance department where he was employed as an electrician.

We believe that the Bridge Man is a fisherman. The suspect is an avid fisherman almost to the point of obsession and fanaticism.

Although the Bridge Man is said to be wearing a fanny pack in the bridge photo, he is actually wearing what is called a deer kit. This typically contains scissors, knives, etc. for cutting up the game that the hunter has killed, and the Bridge Man’s pack may have contained similar items. He may have used some of these items to cut up the girls.

The Bridge Man is definitely left-handed. The suspect is also left-handed. Actually he is ambidextrous, but he prefers his left hand.

We know the Bridge Man is left-handed because he has a left-handed gun holster strapped to his right side with a semiautomatic pistol in it.

We know the Bridge Man has a gun on him as it can clearly be seen in outline under his jacket.

We believe that the Bridge Man’s gun is either unregistered or stolen. If stolen, we believe he may have stolen it from Ron Logan somehow. If this is true, we do not understand this aspect of the case.

The Bridge Man is bowlegged. The suspect is also bowlegged, probably from extensive horse riding as a youth. This is one reason we favor an Amish or German Baptist connection for the suspect because the Amish ride horses everywhere.

The Bridge Man is duck-footed; that is, his feet go outward when he walks. The suspect is also duck-footed.

The Bridge Man has an injury to his left knee which is obvious in the moving gif’s of him walking on the bridge. The suspect also has a serious injury to his left knee, has several deep stitches on it and sometimes wears a brace. We have a photograph of the suspect’s scarred knee and a photograph of the suspect wearing what appears to be a knee brace on his left knee.

The Bridge Man is 50-60 years old. The suspect is 52 years old.

The Bridge Man is 5’8 – 5’10 and weighs 180-200 pounds. The suspect is 5’8 and when last weighed, was 170 pounds, but that was a few years ago, and he seems to have gained weight after his recent release from prison.

The Bridge Man appears to be in good shape for his age based on the
way he easily navigates that rickety, frightening bridge. Being an avid outdoorsman, the suspect has been in great shape his whole life, but he has recently developed a paunch as a recent middle-aged development.

The Bridge Man smokes and is smoking during the crime. He may also smoke cigarillos, as a cigarillo wrapper was found at the scene. The suspect also smokes and he does smoke cigarillos. We have a video of the suspect smoking a cigarillo.

The suspect was photographed the night before the crime in Indianapolis. We have two of these photographs. In one of these photographs, the suspect is standing next to a white compact car. We believe that a white compact vehicle was used by the Bridge Man to commit this crime. We believe that these photographs were used by the suspect to foreshadow the crime he may have intended to commit the next day by leaving tantalizing clues, which is something that he loves to do.

In the number and strangeness of the tantalizing clues this suspect leaves about his purported crimes, the suspect resembles the Zodiac Killer, BTK and others. The suspect also likes to ridicule and mock LE. If this case ever goes to trial, it may go down in history on the same level as those other crimes where the criminal left clues behind to tease and taunt LE.

The Suspect

Suspect’s Background and Life Story

The suspect resides within a 20 mile radius of Delphi and continues to reside there at this moment.

The suspect is a former resident who grew up in Delphi right around the area of the crime and still knows all of the landowners around there, including Ron Logan, Marvin Sandifur, the Mearses and Ivan Brumbaugh. The suspect is either Amish (shunned) or German Baptist or is strongly associated with one of those communities. He knows the area around the crime scene, including Logan’s land, Deer Creek itself and the bridge like the back of his hand.

The suspect has a low education level but probably graduated from high school.

The suspect had a very messy divorce with his ex-wife, including violent child custody issues. The suspect did a short stint in prison for badly assaulting his ex-wife.

The suspect has a long record of mostly minor crimes with some jail stints and one short prison stint. All crimes were committed in Indiana. Crimes were mostly repeated drunk driving but also invading the home of, menacing, and badly beating up an ex-wife. All of his ex-wives have no-contact orders against him, which implies domestic violence on his part. In terms of crimes for which he has not been caught, he has engaged in petty theft.

The suspect is no longer employed, but in the past he worked at different jobs, including handyman and electrician.

Suspect – Social Aspects

The suspect has strong, warm feelings towards his two grown children and seems to have a great relationship with them.

The suspect has a new girlfriend about his age who may be a native of the region. She is a kind, sweet, gentle lady who absolutely adores the suspect and nearly worships him as a good. They appear to have a stable, warm, loving relationship. She is apparently completely clueless about his dark side, but he is good at hiding that anyway.

Relations with the ex-wife are not known, although both the suspect and the ex-wife showed up for his son’s recent high school graduation. Some say that the suspect has strong hatred for his ex-wife, but this is uncertain.

The suspect has a circle of warm friends with whom he has good relations. These are very masculine, tough, hard, outdoors men of about the same age who think he is completely on the up and up. He’s fooling them all.

The suspect can seem quite warm and friendly, “like your best friend.” He is easy to befriend, and when befriended seems charming and disarming and seems increasingly harmless the more you get to know him.

Suspect – Psychological Profile

The subject has Axis 2 Cluster B pathology. The suspect is a psychopath and  has narcissism/Narcissistic Personality Disorder/ Malignant Narcissism. The suspect has no Axis 1 Disorders. He is not psychotic. In fact, he is very sane, almost too sane, and that is part of how he gets away with his purported crimes. There are no signs of mood disorder. The suspect appears calm with little or no anxiety issues.

The suspect is strongly heterosexual. Although rage and hatred towards females seems apparent with the crime the suspect may have committed, these feelings are otherwise not obvious in his life. The suspect sometimes displays hostility to women. A lot of men do this when provoked, but he does it with little provocation and his reactions are quite extreme, often including vague rape and death threats.

The suspect is very masculine in the manner of many middle aged men in the area. He is a hard-ass, a tough guy who uses foul language and has a rough and sometimes menacing way of speaking.

The suspect seems normal but the following adjectives also describe him well: sneaky, devious, “unreadable”, slick, bad boy, naughty, playful, outlaw, gleam in his eye, and rebellious. He appears to be hiding something or keeping some sort of a secret. There is a general feeling of what you see is not what you get.

He is a chameleon in a few different ways. He is an enigma, puzzling and very hard to figure out, an actor who sees life as a series of roles. He does not appear suspicious at all to most observers. Instead he hides in plain sight and blends right in with society. He is very capable of fooling people, an Academy award actor who sees life is an endless series of roles to be played based on whatever the needs of the given situation may be.

The suspect is capable of fooling people so easily because he is a sneaky, devious, underhanded, conspiring and plotting man. Most of his actions are well plotted and planned, even calculated to the point of being choreographed. The suspect displays little spontaneity other than regular rages.

His IQ is surely within the 84-116 normal range (2/3 of the population) and probably within the 90-110 range (half the population), though he may be towards the lower end. However, the suspect is much more intelligent than he appears and possesses a sheer animal, devious, and utterly cunning intelligence. In terms of this sort of intelligence, he has a genius IQ. He is a very hard man to fool, and he is an expert at reading others.

The suspect has a violent hair-trigger temper which can be set off at any time with little provocation. Although he has committed acts of serious violence in the past, this temper nevertheless generally takes a verbal rather than physical form and consists of menace, threats, stalking, harassment, terrorizing and intimidation.

The suspect takes little or no responsibility for his actions and blames others for everything. He attacks others and then claims to be acting in self-defense.

The suspect is a pathological liar. Truth is mixed in with lies and fabrications to the point where he believes his own lies and even gets caught in them. Reactions when caught in his pathological lying are temper tantrums, rage, ranting, and veiled threats via angry and menacing language.

In his court cases, the suspect engaged in shameless, pathological, defensive lying and blaming of others.

The suspect has the following life themes: You can’t win, they’ve got it in for me, life is a game, I’m fooling them.

Suspect – Verbal Style

The suspect has a versatile verbal style and can seem sentimental, poetic, moving and even philosophical. He is capable of fooling people into thinking he is a person who cares deeply about life’s small and kind wonders.

Verbal defenses are denial, rage, rants, and especially redirection. Other defenses include an excellent ability at distracting people and directing attention away from what is important. For this, he utilizes red herrings, irrelevancies, redirection, minor details, fussing, wrong turns, wrong directions, wrong way streets, red herrings, and misdirection. He also uses countless aliases and even steals identities to make new aliases.

The suspect is also a storyteller and likes to tell long, rambling, colorful, Mark Twain style stories that tell it like it is about what seem to be ordinary people and ordinary communities but in fact are anything but that? He can be quite entertaining in this role. He turns off some who find him a quasi-literate blowhard, but others find him quite entertaining as his stories could be seen as charming.

The motivation for this crime is hard to figure out, but we suspect it may be similar to many serial killers. Although there is no evidence yet that the Bridge Man has killed other people, he certainly may have. Hence we believe he is a “serial killer type” instead of a serial killer. In that case, the motivation for the crime is of a sexually sadistic psychopathic serial type.

Suspect – Appearance, Lifestyle, Habits, Beliefs and Opinions


The suspect has one large tattoo on his upper right front shoulder. We do not know what this is a tattoo of.


The suspect has some sort of gang ties with the Aryan Brotherhood (AB), possibly as a result of his incarceration. We have photographs of the suspect throwing Aryan Brotherhood gang signs. Nevertheless, we have little evidence that he is a White Supremacist, and on his Facebook page, he comes across as an anti-racist, even a coastal liberal variety. He may have only joined the AB for protection in prison.

The suspect appears to be a carefree practical joker who lives a playful, laid back, easy-going lifestyle where most things are jokes and little is to be taken seriously. Life of the party.


The suspect is a regular drug user. He mostly uses marijuana, which he enjoys a lot. We also believe he may be deeply involved in methamphetamine, even to the point of manufacture and dealing.

The suspect was formerly a very heavy drinker, and many problems, especially legal ones, resulted from this. We believe he may no longer drink.

Beliefs and  Opinions

The suspect’s philosophical outlook can be summed up as a cynical one that humans are lousy animals driven by low, base interests, and who are corrupt at their core. He accuses LE and small town government people in the Midwest as incorrigibly corrupt. His reaction to picture he paints of Tobacco Road sleaze in the underbelly of Mayberry RFD small town White America is offended, cynical, fatalistic and somewhat disgusted – the good citizen outraged by sleazy omnipresent corruption.

The suspect has a very low opinion of LE in Delphi and the surrounding area, as he claims that they ran him out of town as a criminal pest and chronic drunk driving offender. He has a grudge against local LE.

The suspect’s political beliefs are quite liberal. He comes across as a sort of aging hippie type, unusual for Indiana.

Suspect – Role in the Investigation

The suspect has inserted himself deeply in the investigation to an almost unprecedented degree. He is now one of the most well known people who are “trying to find the killer.” In part this is being done to try to divert attention away from himself, but another factor seems to be narcissism, possibly even Malignant Narcissism, which means he can’t help himself. He also loves the limelight, the sound of his own voice, is something of a publicity hound, likes the idea that he is hiding right under the noses of everyone and getting away with it, and thinks this is some sort of a joke.

The suspect’s attitude towards the investigation is hard to figure. We believe he is nervous and fearful of being caught but also sees the whole thing as a hilarious game of cat and mouse. He’s fooling LE and all of society, getting away with murder and hiding right under their noses. He also seems to be playing a game of, “Neener neener. I’m the killer and you’ll never catch me ha ha!” In this sense he resembles the Zodiac and BTK.

The suspect sought out LE (FBI) early in the investigation in order to leave a tip. We have a video of him calling in this phone tip. We believe he did this as part of a plan to frame an innocent man. We believe he was originally going to commit this crime and then lay low, but that changed after he was photographed and recorded on audio.

Over the next month he then formulated an elaborate case to try to frame an innocent man (a former workmate who he had had a falling out with). This consisted of a very long and elaborate theory which did not make much sense on examination. Further, the man he attempted to frame did not seem like the type to do such a crime. He also included a number of videos as part of this plan. He then went out on the Internet and tried to promulgate this theory on a number of websites and on Facebook and Youtube. He was fairly successful at this until some people started catching on to his scheme.
