State police release drawing of suspect in Delphi killings

Posted July 18, 2017

State police on Monday released a composite sketch of the main suspect in the killings of two teenage girls who disappeared from a hiking trail near their hometown in northern in in February. Authorities said the sketch depicts a hat that may not be accurate, but the public is asked to "focus on the person's facial features".

According to our sister station WTHR, Indiana State police will be giving an update on their current investigation.

Anyone with information may call the tip line at 844-459-5786 and may remain anonymous.

A reward in excess of $230,000 is offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these murders, states the press release.

Libby German and Abby Williams were reported missing by their family on February 13.

Police say they hope the sketch will help clarify some of the pictures that were previously released regarding the investigation and the man on the bridge.

Police have said that it's possible more than one person could be behind the killings, but investigators have zeroed in on one suspect so far.

Sgt. Kim Riley says a news release will be issued Monday morning providing "very important" information that "will give people a clearer image of who we are looking for" in the unsolved double-murder case. Their bodies were found near the Delphi Historic Trails on February 14.

The man can be heard in the brief audio clip saying what police believe to be "down the hill".

Investigators have recovered other video from the phone, but said they are not ready to release it.
