  • New Evidence to Be Released in Investigation Into Indiana Teens' Slayings

They describe the person as a white male between 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish brown hair. Police are asking the public to focus on the person's facial features as the depiction of the hat may be inaccurate.

More than five months after two teens were found murdered on a hiking trial in IN, investigators on Monday released a composite sketch of man believed to be connected to the unsolved killings.

Fourteen-year-old Liberty German vanished with 13-year-old Abigail Williams on February 13 while hiking near Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Investigators believe the sketch is the person they're looking for in the double homicide investigation.

"We feel this is very important because it actually gives a better view of the person in the picture that you see down below", Sergeant Kim Riley said at a press conference, Fox 59 reports. Their bodies were found the next day in the woods.

The girls were kidnapped and killed near a trail in Delphi. She also captured a man's voice saying "down the hill" during what police call "criminal activity".

The friends and fellow softball players had been dropped off the day before near an abandoned rail bridge over a creek, police said. That evidence came from Liberty German's cellphone.

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.

There's a reward in excess of $230,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person, or persons, responsible for the murders.
