Indiana State Police released a new image of the suspect in an investigation into the two girls found murdered near a historic Delphi trail.
The Indiana State Police released a composite sketch of the prime suspect identified in a picture wearing the blue jacket and blue jeans. Sergeant Kim Riley says they will release what he's describing as "very important" information about the man they believe is the killer. Sergeant Riley says the information should give the public a clearer image of the man they're looking for.
The person depicted in the composite sketch is described as a white male between 5’6” to 5’10”, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish brown hair, eye color unknown. Police say the sketch depicts a hat that may not be accurate. They are asking people focus on the person’s facial features.
It's been about 5 months since the murder of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams. The remains of Libby German and Abby Williams were found in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail. The girls were reported missing one day earlier when they did not show up at an assigned meeting place at a set time. Since then, federal, state and local investigators have asked for information on the crime.
Police released the photo of the man they believe to be the main suspect in the case in February. This photo was taken by Libby. Police also released an audio file from her phone. Investigators praised her as a hero for having the presence of mind to act in what may have been her last moments alive.
"This young lady is a hero, there's no doubt," Sgt. Tony Slocum from the Indiana State Police said. "To have enough presence of mind to activate the video system on her cell phone to record what we believe is criminal behavior is about to occur."
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. If you have any information in the case, police are urging you to contact them. You can send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 844-459-5786.
