Posted July 17, 2017

Authorities investigating the murder of two IN teenagers on Monday issued a new sketch of the man they believe is the prime suspect.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said investigators have received over 18,000 tips and interviewed over 1,000 potential suspects.

Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were found slain on February 14, a day after the two were reported missing after hiking on trails near Delphi, located about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Police suspect Liberty also recorded the man's voice on her phone.

It's been more than five months since the girls' bodies were found on a trail near the Monon High Bridge.

The suspect has been described as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10, weighing between 180-220 pounds with reddish brown hair.

IN investigators on Monday released a new sketch of the suspect in the unsolved slayings of two teenage girls earlier this year.

'We ask that you focus on the person's facial features, ' the statement accompanying the drawing reads.

The photos and audio came from Liberty's cellphone.

Riley said investigators believe the man captured in the photos and in the new artist's sketch killed both girls. Anyone with information about the murders or the person depicted in the composite sketch should call the established tip line at 844-459-5786 and can remain anonymous.
