A MOTHER of a victim in the Delphi "Snapchat murders" says her slain daughter is "constantly" sending her signs from beyond the grave - as the quest to find her killer continues.
Carrie German told The US Sun that she "misses everything" about her daughter, Libby, who was just 14 when she was murdered alongside her best friend, Abigail Williams, 13, in February 2017.9Libby German (left) and Abby Williams (right) were both murdered in Delphi, Indiana in February 2017Credit: YouTube 9Carrie German recounted for The US Sun the horrific moment she learned her daughter had been found deadCredit: WRTV 9The last photo the girls took was of Abby walking along the Manon Bridge TrailCredit: Snapchat
The two girls disappeared on Feb. 13 after visiting the Delphi Historic Trails in Indiana during a day off from school.
They were found dead the following day in a wooded area close to the Manon High Bridge Trail, where just hours earlier Libby had uploaded her final Snapchat post showing Abby walking along the tracks.
Investigators have never revealed how Libby and Abby were killed, and the identity of their killer remains a mystery.
As Carrie's five-year wait for answers continues with no end in sight, she says she finds comfort in her memories of Libby and the thought that her spirit continues to walk with her.Read More on CrimeLAST WORDS Delphi murder victim's mom reveals tragic last call with slain daughterFISHY EXCUSE?

"I see signs of Libby every single day, sometimes many times a day," Carrie said.
"Like when a song comes on the radio that starts playing when I randomly change the station that I know she loved.
"That to me is her way of sending little signs to say hello to me."
Carrie often finds herself speaking aloud to Libby or subconsciously dialing her number on her phone.Most read in The US Sun'PARK FAILURE' Major update after boy, 11, killed in horror park accident as family watchedPURE EVIL Sick details in case of toddler found dead under bridge near pregnant mom's bodyTV BATTLE Inside George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts' feud after sex assault claimsBLOODY ATTACK Chilling details in case of TikToker who allegedly killed disabled sister
"It freaks me out every time it happens because I don't intentionally call her, but her number is randomly being called on my phone," she said.
"I take that as a sign of her just saying, ‘hi mom’. She must know that I need to talk to her or want to talk to her."'SHE WAS THE BEST'
Remembering her daughter more than half a decade on, Carrie, sometimes speaking through tears, told The US Sun that Libby was a girl wise beyond her years who was often dishing out stellar advice for those in need, including herself.
"She was the best; 14 years old and could give me the best advice," said Carrie.
"And I would always be like where do you come up with this s**t? You're 14, you've never been in a relationship, like how do you always know how to say the right thing?"
Libby told her mom that sometimes when she was alone in her room, she would dream up various scenarios and imagine how she would handle them if they ever happened to her.
Those fictitious circumstances included thinking about what would happen if she was married with children and one day had to come home to tell her husband that she'd lost her job, Carrie remembered.
"I was just like, what 14-year-old does that?" she said. "But she was always like that and you could just talk to her for hours.
"We would just talk and talk - talk about how life was going to be and I miss that.
"It sucks that we were robbed of that opportunity to spend that future together.
"It was hard seeing her friends you know get their license, go to prom and graduate high school.
"Libby should've been doing all of that stuff with them."A MOTHER'S NIGHTMARE
On the morning of Libby and Abby's deaths, Carrie exchanged what would tragically prove to be her final conversation with Libby over Snapchat.
Hours later she would receive a call from her eldest daughter, Kelsi, who told her that Libby was missing and hadn't been seen for several hours.
It had been a few months since she had seen either Kelsi or Libby in person, as the two siblings lived with their father and grandparents in Delphi, some 250 miles away from her home in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.
Carrie said she was winded by the news of Libby's disappearance, so much so she physically collapsed to the ground.9Libby and Abby's causes of death have never been revealedCredit: Twitter 9The culprit behind the killings has never been caught and no suspects have been publicly named
Beside herself with worry, Carrie frantically scrambled for a way to get down to Delphi to help search for Libbylooo, but when she was finally on her way the following morning it was already too late.
"Libby and Abby have been found," her ex-husband told her over the phone in a flat and low voice, quickly quashing her initial burst of relief.
Carrie said: "Then it hit me that he wasn't saying anything, and I asked if they were okay.
"And he had to tell me that they weren't at that point, I was hysterical.
"All I remember is screaming and crying at the gas station, completely out of control."UNIMAGINABLE GRIEF
For four excruciating hours, Carrie drove down to Delphi to be with Kelsi and other family members.
She spent the next four days sleeping in Libby's room, smelling her old clothes and looking through her things.
Carrie described those days as a "blur" or a nightmare she just hoped she was going to wake up from but the reality of the tragic situation would take months to sink in.
"Even when I saw her [body] I didn’t believe it was real," she admitted.
"I kept waiting for her to sit up and say it was a joke like, ‘got you mom’.
"There’s plenty of days I think, oh let me call her and talk to her, even still.
"It was hard seeing her friends you know get their license, go to prom and graduate high school and it's been tough.
"I still think about her and miss her every day."SNAPCHAT LINK
Five years on from the deaths of Abby and Libby and both of the girls' families have had little in the way of clarity or closure about their deaths, still both unsure of how they were killed and who is responsible for their deaths.
Indiana State Police have remained incredibly guarded about the evidence they have in the case, despite few updates or little seeming progress in the years since.
Waves of new information have been released and leaked to the public in recent months, thanks mostly impart to documents shared by the Murder Sheets podcast.
The first major update in the case came at the end of last year when investigators announced they were looking into a social media user called Anthony_Shots in connection with Libby and Abby's deaths.9Five years on from the deaths of Abby and Libby and both of the girls' families have had little in the way of clarity or closure about their deathsCredit: YouTube 9Kegan Kline was the culprit behind a catfish social media profile linked to the caseCredit: Miami County Detention Center
The account, it would later emerge was being run by accused pedophile Kegan Kline, of Miami County, Indiana, who allegedly used images of a male model to solicit nude images and videos from underage girls.
In a transcript of an interview released by Murder Sheets, Kline admitted to interacting with Libby on the account and said he had plans to meet her in Delphi on the day she was killed but claimed not to have gone and denied any wrongdoing.
"I literally have no clue how that girl died,” Kline told investigators.
“I don't know anything, anything to do with it. Yeah, that is a weird a** coincidence that I happened to talk to her, like, I get that."
Kegan Kline has never been named as a suspect in the case.
He is currently being held in custody in relation to child exploitation and child pornography after allegedly admitting to running the Anthony_Shots account.POTENTIAL SUSPECT
A second potential person of interest in the case emerged months later following a second leak from the Murder Sheets podcast in May.
Ronald Logan, who lived a short distance from where the girls were found, had his property searched by investigators in the aftermath of the girls' deaths.
For the first time, the leaked document, a search warrant application, also revealed new details about Abby and Libby's deaths and the way in which their bodies were found.
In the warrant application - parts of which are redacted - the agent reveals the killer would have been covered in the victims’ blood due to the “large amount of blood was lost by the victims at the crime scene”.
“Because of the nature of the victim’s wounds, it is nearly certain the perpetrator of the crime would have gotten blood on his person/clothing,” the report reads.
The girls were killed by an unspecified "weapon", the report states, and their bodies had been posed and moved from the location where they'd been killed.
Additionally, investigators stated the killer had taken "souvenirs" or trophies from the victims, though the items in question are redacted in the report.
Very little is known about the other evidence police have in the case, save for a video captured by Libby on her phone showing a man walking towards the girls on the track, warning them to go "down the hill."
In the warrant application, investigators wrote that Logan's voice was "not inconsistent with that of the person in the video."
The warrant also declares that Logan's physical build is consistent with the suspect.
Logan was never charged in the case and it's unclear whether he was ever officially considered a suspect with police declining to comment on the matter. He died in 2020 from Covid-19 aged 82.'NO FAITH' IN POLICE
For Carrie, coming to terms with the fact she'd never see her daughter again was incredibly difficult, but harder still is knowing that the person responsible for ending her daughter's life so young may still be out there roaming free.
Angry and frustrated over the seeming lack of progress in the investigation into Libby and Abby's deaths, Carrie believes police are no closer to solving the case than they were five years ago.9A search warrant on Ron Logan's property was ordered by investigatorsCredit: Carroll County Sheriff’s Office 9Logan died in January 2020 and was never named a as a suspect in the caseCredit: ABC 7
While insisting she never had much faith in Indiana State Police finding the culprit, Carrie says she now has "absolutely none."
"I don’t really have an answer as for why, but it’s a lot of spinning wheels, and [the police] just haven’t figured anything out yet
"I just feel like there hasn’t been anything for so long, so what could they possibly be doing?
"It's awful to get your hopes up every time they do say something, like 'Oh yeah, we're getting closer, we just need that one puzzle piece.'
"But they've been saying literally saying the same thing for five years.Read More On The SunSIS SHOWDOWN I tried Kim Kardashian & Kylie Jenner's skincare lines to see which was bestDEVASTATING LOSS Mystery over death of jet ski champ Eric 'The Eagle' who vanished in race
"So what's changed? Nothing has changed. That's why I'm not very confident."
When approached by The US Sun, a spokesperson for the Indiana State Police declined to comment on Carrie's remarks insisting the department "is not giving interviews at the time."

Kailyn replied: “Haven’t had them in like 7ish months but ok.”
The mom-of-four first got lip fillers back in 2016 and would regularly splash the cash to top it up.
It comes shortly after fans were left divided over Kailyn video of her five-year-old son Lux.
It left many wondering if he was making ‘inappropriate’ gesture as he tried to lip-sync the lyrics to a rap song.Most read in Entertainment BABY BOMBSHELL Khloes baby daddy Tristan breaks silence hours after welcoming second child FIERY CARNAGE Ellens ex critical with severe burns as horror pics show fiery car crash SO REAL?

Many thought that he was holding up both his middle fingers.
Just days before the MTV star was accused of playing favorites with her children.
Her fans pointed out that Lux is the only child of Kailyn’s to have a Highlight feed on her Instagram, which is called Life of Lux.
Kailyn is mom to Isaac Elliot, who she shares with ex Jo Rivera.
She is also a proud parent to Lincoln Marshall with Javi Marroquin.
Her sons Lux and Cred are from her relationship with Chris Lopez, 28.
In recent weeks fans have pointed out that they think Kailyn might be expecting again.
The star recently regnited pregnancy rumors after sharing a photo with her best friend Lindsie Chrisley.
The reality star took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday to post a cute snap with her podcast co-host.
The pair laughed while hugging, though the TV personality seemed to strategically use her and Lindsie’s arms to cover up her stomach.
And last month Kailyn opened up about wanting more kids.
She said on her Barely Famous podcast: “I don’t know, but I want to get my tubes tied. I guess whatever happens first… I would like to get my tubes tied this year, actually.
“I think the more time that goes on, the more I just don’t want more children because I feel like I’m spreading myself so thin, and all my kids are such different ages that they all need me for different parts of their lives right now. I just don’t know.”Kailyn Lowry/Instagram 4 Kailyn with her four kids
