Indiana park honoring 2 slain teens gets donated light poles

Delphi murders

Capt. David Bursten of the Indiana State Police is joined by law enforcement officials from numerous departments to provide the latest details of the investigation into the murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams on Feb. 22 at Delphi United Methodist Church in Delphi, Indiana. A planned northern Indiana park honoring the victims is getting donated light poles to illuminate its softball fields and playgrounds.

DELPHI, Ind. — A planned northern Indiana park honoring two teenage girls who were slain in 2017 is getting donated light poles to illuminate its softball fields and playgrounds.

The Purdue Research Foundation donated 10 outdoor light poles and lighting fixtures for the Abby and Libby Memorial Park. That park near Delphi is named for 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams, whose February 2017 deaths remain unsolved.

A Duke Energy crew removed the 65-foot-tall (19.8-meter-tall) poles Monday from their concrete bases at Purdue University’s former Intermural Black Fields and put them on a trailer for delivery at the park, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis.

Mike Patty is Liberty German’s grandfather. He says the poles will go on pallets so they can be painted before they’re installed at the park.
