Detectives investigating the 2017 murders of Indiana teenagers Abigail Williams and Liberty German are looking for people who contacted a social media account possibly linked to the case.

In a press release Monday, Indiana State Police said authorities are looking to expand the list of social media apps used by the anthony_shots account. Investigators want to speak to anyone who contacted the anthony_shots profile on the Yellow app, currently known as Yubo.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at [email protected] or 765-822-3535.

The profile, used from 2016 to 2017 on social media apps including Snapchat and Instagram, used fictitious images of a male model and depicted the user as a wealthy individual who owned numerous cars, according to police. In late 2021, police revealed the account may be linked to the Abigail and Liberty murders.

The profile creator used the information while connecting with young girls to solicit nude images, their addresses and attempt to meet the underage girls.

Kegan Kline, who faces charges in a child exploitation case, admitted to creating the fake profile, according to NBC’s Indianapolis affiliate WTHR. Kline has not been charged with the murders of those who were found dead a day after they disappeared along a hiking trail near Delphi in February 2017.

A $325,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the teenage murders.
