Four years ago, a pair of girls, Abby and Libby, were murdered below the Mono High Bridge in Delphi, Indiana. While plenty of attention has been paid to the case, it remains unsolved.

HLN first dug into the case in its podcast, Down the HIll: The Delphi Murders, and now the network has turned it into a two-part original series that premiered on Valentine’s Day.

To create the above spot, Silver Spring, Md.-based Trick & Mortar takes pre-existing footage of the actual bridge and local landscape and, using a little CGI sorcery, turns it into suspenseful storytelling.
