DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI)—There was a candlelight vigil held Tuesday evening for those mourning the loss of Abby Williams and Libby German.

The Delphi United Methodist Church hosted the vigil on the one year anniversary of their deaths.

The media was not allowed to attend out of respect to family and friends. Organizers said afterwards more than 500 people gathered at the church. They mourned, prayed, told stories of the girls and reflected on the many emotions of the past year.

News caught up with Delphi neighbor Paul Cotner who said events like these are essential in bringing the community together.

"Well I think the whole community participates in this by supporting the police department," said Cotner. "They're really anxious about finding the individual that participated in this crime, a terrible thing. Two young people that had a lot to live for." 

Those in attendance also thanked law enforcement for their dedication to the case. They asked everyone to keep the community in their thoughts and prayers.
