Community continues to rally behind families of Carroll County teens

CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – A community continues to rally behind two grieving families after the homicides of Abigail Williams and Liberty German.

Authorities still have no person of interest, no suspect and no one in custody in connection to the disappearance and homicides of the two girls.

“All of a sudden a place you thought was safe is not so safe anymore,” said Deanna Rich, resident.

Deanna Rich moved to the small town about two years ago and never had to worry about her safety until now. She said she’s holding her son a little closer.

“I’m home everyday before dark, our doors are dead bolted, constantly knowing where he’s at when he’s off the bus,” she said. “When he gets on the bus, he has to send me a text.”

Rich said her family lives just five miles away from the crime scene.

“I was praying that they would find them alive,” she said. “When I found out that my son was friends with them, they were in his classes, my heart was breaking for him and for the parents.”

Her son Levi attended middle school with Abby and Libby.

“I’m thinking I’d never have to go through this, I never thought I would,” said Levi Crume, Delphi Middle School student.

Crume said school will never been the same. He’s already noticed several changes at school.

“There’s a lot less people basically in the classrooms and security is a lot more tight,” he said.

Crume also said classmates are making paper cranes at school. It’s a symbol for healing. He said they’re hanging the cranes in the library as part of a healing garden.

How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
