DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — It's been two years since the bodies of Abby Wiliiams and Libby German were found on the trail near the Monon High Bridge in Delphi, but even after all of this time community members continue to celebrate their memories.

On Thursday night, Libby German's family hosted light the night to remember her memories.

"Justice will be served in this courthouse I believe one day," said German's mother Carrie Timmons.

Outside the Carroll County Courthouse, community and family members gathered to celebrate the life of Libby German and Abby Williams.

Glow in the dark necklaces, bracelets and glow sticks lit up the gazebo on the courthouse square to signify the girls' never ending impact in Delphi. 

"Everyone just kind of rallies around in support to keep us upbeat and not to let us get too discouraged," said Timmons. 

Community members say it's discouraging that there aren't answers, but remain vigilant and resilient.

"If there's any information out there please remember the voice," said community member Randy Gravitt

The audio message of the alleged killer says ,"Down the hill. Down the hill. Down the hill."

Down the hill...three words that still ring in ears of those affected by the deaths of Abby and Libby. None more so than Timmons who wanted to use light the night to honor and celebrate the girls. 

Libby's mom said that ever since the death of her daughter she has kept an orange light on at home to celebrate her memory just like at light the night she used orange glow sticks, which was her favorite color.

Timmons says she would do anything to turn that orange light off at home.

"Well I want to shut it off like as soon as we have him I will shut that light off," said Timmons. 

This was the second year in a row for light the night. Timmons says if you know anything please speak up.
