On Feb 14. the bodies of Abby and Libby were discovered near the Monon High Bridge. In a city of less than 3,000 people, the double homicide has greatly impacted the community.

Abby and Libby's pressence can be felt all over the town. From the purple and teal ribbons on light poles, to orange light bulbs that glow in their honor. It's clear the two girls have left a mark on Carroll County.

People in Delphi have been trying to come to terms with what happened, grieving their sense of security. 12 months into the investigation, the search for the killer is far from over.

We also sit down one-on-one with Sheriff Tobe Leazenby to find out how this case has impacted his department. He also shares how he's watched the city of Delphi come together.

The families of Abby and Libby have spent the last 12 months seeking answers in the case. Libby's grandparents, Mike and Becky Patty sat down with News 18 to talk about the last year. They want to thank the community for all of the support and beg anyone with information to come forward.

Investigators have released two blurry pictures, an audio clip of the main suspect's voice and a sketch of the man they believe to be the killer.

The special will air Tuesday night on WLFI at 5:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on the CW.
