The crime scene where the girls were found was so gruesome State Police Superintendent Doug Carter expressed his horror at the crime. “I’ll never be able to un-see what I saw that day,” he said.

Patty told how they spent their time on the heartbreaking anniversary.

We went to the grave sites today. We have a candlelight vigil that is going to happen tonight. We are staying busy for the day.”

German captured a video on her cell phone of the man police have said was the suspect in their murders but her grandmother said they had only seen a “small clip. There were some things they wanted to see if we understood.” Patty told she had not seen the entire video and didn’t know “right now,” if she even wanted to.

Patty said German’s father lived with them and was doing “ok” on the anniversary of his daughter’s disappearance and subsequent death.

She also told she was hopeful the killer would be caught, explaining the police had been “checking out” several “persons of interest that that haven’t told us about.”

Patty said the police “feel like he did it before and he’ll do it again,” so they wanted to keep the information out there to prevent another tragedy.

“We don’t know, we’re mixed,” she said when asked if she believed the killer was a local man. “We go back and forth. We don’t know. He could be in our town or in one of the big towns around us and blend in. He is down the street from somebody.”

Patty recalled one of her favorite memories of her granddaughter.

“One of the funniest is when I took her to the doctor and she hates shots. She was 13-years-old and she climbed behind the examining desk! They made me leave the room, I could hear her hollering at the doctor.”

Patty asked that people interested in helping the families of German and Williams to “Share share share. Share his picture. There are several places to find the wanted poster. Be vigilant and look, take a screenshot of the wanted poster. That’s what we ask of everybody please.”

German’s grandmother said she was not surprised that her granddaughter caught the killer on video.

“She was a very smart girl, she liked science, she watched those crime shows. She wanted to work with the FBI and she wanted to solve crimes. Or be a doctor and solve diseases. You know, that was Libby. Would it surprise me that she would manage to do something like that? No. I’m very proud of her.”
