Police release new suspect sketch in Delphi murders

From Local Sources

This is the face of the suspect that goes with body of the video captured on Liberty German's cell phone minutes before she and Abigail Williams were murdered.

DELPHI — Indiana State Police released today a new sketch of the suspect believed responsible for the murder of Abigail Williams and Liberty German in Delphi.

The bodies of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were found in February 2017 on a hiking trail near Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. The slayings remain unsolved.

Police believe the new sketch more accurately depicts the face of the suspect — who appears to be in his mid-20s to mid-30s — from the video recorded on Liberty German's cellphone while she and Abigail were on the High bridge.

Police also shared today more of the audio, as well as previously unreleased video from Libby's phone.

Superintendent Douglas Carter said today: "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."

The investigation has been a priority of the Multi-Agency Task Force since the first day of the investigation and will continue to be a priority for all participating law enforcement agencies, according to an Indiana State Police news release.
