- On Monday, the Indiana State Police released a new sketch of the man they believe murdered two teen girls in Delphi in 2017.
- The bodies of Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, were found on February 14, 2017 not far from where they were dropped off the previous day to go on a walk.
- The new sketch shows a younger-looking man than the first composite released by police back in 2017.
The Indiana State Police held a press conference on Monday to release a new sketch of the man wanted for killing two teen girls in 2017.
Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, were dropped off at a trail in Delphi on February 13, 2017 to go for a walk near a local creek, but they never showed up when they were supposed to be picked up later that afternoon. The next day, their bodies were found in a wooded area about a half-mile upstream from where they were dropped off, according to The Republic.
Now it appears that authorities may be coming closer to finding their killer. At the press conference on Monday, officials released a new sketch of the man they believed killed Abigail and Liberty. The sketch shows a younger-looking man than the one pictured in the first sketch released by authorities in July 2017. Authorities believe the suspect is in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties, according to a press release.
“We have a witness. You made mistakes. We are coming for you and there’s no place for a heartless coward like you to hide that gets his thrill from killing little girls,” Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said at the briefing.
It’s believed that the man is either from Delphi, works there, or used to work there and still visits the area regularly. Carter went so far as to say that the killer may have attended the press conference to get the latest information on the investigation.
Initially, police found video and audio recordings on German’s phone that they believe are of the killer. At Monday’s press conference, they released longer versions of each of these clips.
In the audio recording, a man’s voice is heard ordering the teens to go “down the hill.”
The video shows a man in a blue jacket, jeans, and a Kangol hat.
Carter implored everyone to watch the clip and see if they recognised anyone they knew from the man’s “mannerisms as he walks.”
