It's been three weeks since Liberty German and Abigail Williams were brutally murdered while hiking in Indiana, and the crime has yet to be solved.

On Thursday, German's grandfather, Mike Patty, made a public statement to the press in Delphi, Indiana, pleading the public to help find the answers in the girls' heinous killing.

"In our house the last conversation is always, 'I love you,'" he said, standing beside emotional wife, Becky. "Before they go to bed, when they get up, drop them off for school ... it's always, 'I love you.'"

As Radar readers know, Williams and German's bodies were found three-quarters of a mile from an abandoned railroad bridge where they had been dropped off for a hike last month. They were 13 and 14, respectively.

"It is disturbing. We're going to get to the bottom of this. We're confident of that. . .And bring justice," Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said of the crime scene.

Police have released a photograph of a man who they say is the prime suspect in the investigation, but no arrests have been made.

"He's someone's neighbor, coworker, family member, friend, husband or acquaintance," Patty said of the suspect. "Somebody knows something."

"Look for someone who has recently changed their appearance. . .if you think it could be but then say, 'No, he's not like that,' go with your initial instinct. Let law enforcement. . .make that determination. How ever small it may seem. . .please, we need your help."

"The pain will always be there," he added of the loss of their granddaughter and her friend.

Patty later read a statement on behalf of the family of Williams, who haven't spoken publicly of the murder.
