Young Neighbor of Possible Suspect in Delphi Murders Says He Creeped Her Out

There is a potential new twist in the hunt for the killer of two Indiana teenagers after a man was accused of rape and killed himself near where the girls were murdered.

Cops are investigating whether rape suspect Paul Etter is connected to the deaths of 13-year-old Abby Williams and 14-year-old Libby German, who were abducted and killed as they walked along a railway trestle outside Delphi, Indiana, on Feb. 13, 2017. 

A youngster who lived across the street from Etter says she did not feel good when he tried to strike up a conversation with her.

“I was a little creeped out. I was a little scared,” his young neighbor told Inside Edition. 

Etter is accused of abducting and raping a 26-year-old woman in another county. His car was pulled over by cops, sparking a tense five-hour standoff with police negotiators on June 27. 

“He said he's done some bad things in his life and he's a bad person,” Sheriff Robert Goldsmith of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, told Inside Edition. 

The drama ended when 55-year-old Etter fired a gun and took his own life — 50 miles from the spot where the bodies of Abby and Libby were found.
