SHOCKING details have been revealed after a man linked to the 2017 Delphi murder apparently prepared an alibi "prior to knowing about the crime."
An affidavit indicates that Ron Logan lied to investigators as it emerges that the killer who murdered the two girls may have taken photos of the scene.
Officials said that Logan, who died in 2020, asked his cousin on the morning of February 14, 2017, to tell police that he picked up Logan at his house that afternoon to take him to an aquarium store about 20 miles away.
"I was not home during the time that all this was happening," Logan told Inside Edition in 2017.
"I was in Lafayette, and I didn't get home 'til approximately 6.30 in the evening."
Libby, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were found dead after being reported missing in Delphi, Indiana in February 2017.

A Snapchat recording taken by the girls captured the image and voice of a stranger.
After receiving around 15 tips that the man captured in the image was Ron Logan, 77 at the time, officials began to investigate him.
A newly released federal search warrant from 2017 reveals that FBI agents searched Logan's property, and they thought the voice in the recording was “not inconsistent” with that of the owner.
They found that he matched the size of the man in the photo and could easily move around Deer Creek, the spot where the girls were last seen.

Investigators found that two of his former girlfriends described him as violent and had apparently threatened to kill them, according to an affidavit gained by podcast The Murder Sheet.
However, Ron Logan denied being to the person in the Snapchat and told Inside Edition "the picture if of so poor quality. It doesn't look like anyone I've ever seen."
PHOTOS OF SCENE
This comes as officials suspected the killer had taken a souvenir and believed photographs or videos were likely shot of the monstrous set-up to "memorialize" the crime scene.
Court documents released by the Murder Sheet podcast detail a search warrant was made on March 17, 2017, where investigators claim the crime scene was tampered with and it appeared the girls' bodies "were moved and staged."
In the docs, FBI agents noted that pieces of clothing from one of the victims were missing.
Federal investigators said there were no visible signs of a struggle or a fight.
Investigators recovered fibers and unidentified hairs at the scene, per the doc.
FBI agents also said the killer would have been covered in the victims' blood, according to the search warrant.
One said: "Because of the nature of the victim’s wounds, it is nearly certain the perpetrator of the crime would have gotten blood on his person/clothing."
The girls' killer was never formally identified and remains a mystery five years on.
Libby’s older sister Kelsi, 21, said she hopes the culprit is “scared”.
