Vigil held for slain Carroll County teens

DELPHI, Ind. (WISH) –Dozens of people in Delphi joined together Wednesday night for a special prayer vigil inside the Carroll County Courthouse.

Around 100 people filled the rotunda inside the courthouse. All of them came together to pray, not only for peace and comfort but guidance and direction for law enforcement.

“This sort of situation its bigger than all of us. It touches us to the depths of who we are. It is times like this especially that people go, ‘I need something beyond me’,” said Brent Oliver, pastor at First Assembly of God in Delphi.

On Wednesday people found that inside the courthouse.

They held hands and leaned on each other. The community is relying on faith as investigators work to find those responsible for Libby German and Abby Williams’ deaths.

Several pastors came together to lead the prayer vigil. Their focus was the same as those in the crowd.

“Pray for the investigators and the police officers to find whoever did this to these two beautiful young girls,” said Reta Turner, a community member.

They left with heavy hearts but said their faith is unwavering. Many there on Wednesday say they are confident justice will be served.

The chaplain for law enforcement in Delphi says he’s been praying with investigators every morning at 8:30 as they get ready to work this case. He asked the community join in and pray from home every morning at 8:30 as well until this case is solved.
