THE HEARTBROKEN sister of Delphi’s ‘Snapchat murder’ victim Libby German says she writes angry letters to her late sister for hiding online chats she had with a suspected pedophile’s social media account.
Kelsi German, 22, admitted to The Sun that she felt betrayed after it emerged a fake social media profile was one of the last to communicate with her sister.
The forensic psychology student was so angry when she found out she went to Libby’s grave and yelled at her, she told The Sun.
Libby, 14, and her friend Abby Williams, 13, were found murdered on February 14, 2017 on Indiana’s Delphi Historic Trails.
The case remains unsolved, but police announced last December that they were investigating the fake social media profile “anthony_shots” that Kegan Kline created in connection with the case.
The 27-year-old, who is currently in jail awaiting trial on allegations of child sex abuse, has not been charged with the Delphi murders and denies any involvement.
But transcripts of a police interview with Kline showed the Catfish account he created was in contact with Libby on the day she and Abby were killed.
And according to the transcripts, whoever used the anthony_shots account was supposed to meet Libby and Abby on the paths they were killed on.
Libby’s family, who had previously been skeptical of claims that social media played a role in the killings, were deeply shocked.
Speaking at the True Crime Convention in Las Vegas, Kelsi told The Sun: “I was heartbroken because Libby was my best friend and she told me everything I thought.
“I had to put up with her not telling me that.
“She didn’t want me to know because she knew my opinion, she knew I would tell her it’s not safe and I would tell her not to do it.
“So she didn’t tell me and I never had a clue. I never had a clue. She hid it really well from all of us.”
Kelsi, who will be graduating from Purdue University with a degree in forensic psychology in two weeks, has been one of her sister and Abby’s biggest advocates since her death.
She was among the last people to see the girls alive, having driven them to the trails where they were killed.
Describing her feelings when she found out Libby had kept the online chats a secret from her, Kelsi said: “In the beginning I was super angry when they first released it and law enforcement officially told us they think it’s social media, and that’s what they’re doing watching.
“I was so angry that I went to her grave and yelled at her. I shouted.
I was so angry and I still am, I’m frustrated.
“I write her a letter every day and in my last letters since December they weren’t very nice words to her.
“I tell her how mad and angry I am.
“But then again, I’m so sad that she felt like she couldn’t tell me, that she couldn’t trust me with that information.”
‘SHE WAS MY BEST FRIEND’
When asked if she felt betrayed by her murdered sister, Kelsi said: “I think part of it is.
“I just felt like I had this image of our friendship and our sisterhood, and I still think it’s all real.
“I think she was my best friend and we were very close and I think that was just something that she knew she wanted to do.
“And she didn’t tell me, she knew I wouldn’t be okay with that. She knew I would be upset.
“I think she would have been very angry with me if I had told her not to do it. I don’t think she wanted to hear me say stop.”
Kelsi has previously told The Sun that she told her she loved her before dropping her sister off at the Delphi Trails and the young teenager said it back.
Now she says she not only mourns her sister’s death, but also the image she had of their friendship.
She said: “There’s a lot of sadness and a lot of tears and a lot of anger and a lot of frustration, all the emotions because I’m grieving what I thought was a friendship.
“I thought we trust each other so much that we could share everything and she didn’t.
“It might just have been that one thing that she never told me, but if a friend who was here did that, it would still be very hurt and it would be something we needed to talk about.
“And we can’t do that, so I have to deal with anger and sadness on my own.”
Kelsi, who is due to marry later this year, also revealed that she has relied on therapy and church to cope with her anger and sadness.
She said: “I do therapy once a week. I actually stopped going and then started again in December shortly after the anthony_shots profile was published because I was in a really bad place.
“I remember the first day I sat down with my therapist, she asked how I was feeling about all of this and when I spoke she said I sounded really angry.
“She told me I needed to work through that, and soon after I started going to church and talking to my pastor, that helped a lot.
“I was able to pray about it and received biblical help to get through.
“All of this combined has gotten me to a point where I’m not as angry and not as sad anymore, but definitely still have frustrating moments.”
