This may be why the killer chose the bridge, to be able to control the directions one could run.
Back to the targets - I suspect the killer has committed a crime similar to this one in the past. IMO, this is why the killer had confidence in abducting 2 young, fiesty, seemingly athletic girls. Taking on 2 victims at the same time is almost unheard of.
The killer may have succeeded in carrying out a similar crime (or crimes) before, and got away with it/them. If so, the killer would have been replaying the crime/s over and over again in his head, fine tuning his ritual for his next attack.
The killer may have travelled to Delphi specifically to commit this crime. It's what serial killers have done in order to avoid such headlines as "similar crimes", "possible serial killing". Ted Bundy, the Riverside killer, The original Night Stalker (Deangelo),and Kemper all admitted to doing that (excluding Deangelo from the admitting part). I am only suspecting there may be previous crimes because of the fact that two girls were taken at the same time.
The man made contact with the girls at the south end of the bridge where it meets the land again. Libby was standing off the edge of the bridge and taking the video in selfie mode. Abby was close to the end of the bridge and it is believed that she was edited out of the most recently released video by the FBI. Gray Hughes has done some very good videos on YouTube that positions the girls and suspect on the bridge.
Police have stated that they are seeking a single suspect. I imagine that they have some foot print evidence along with Libby's recording that helped them determine they are looking for one suspect.
