Police Release Sketch Of Suspect In Delphi Murder Investigation

Police say the man in this photo and composite sketch is a white male weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish-brown hair and unknown eye color. Police are asking the public to focus on the person's facial features as the depiction of the hat may be inaccurate.

Indiana State Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a person suspected of murdering two teen girls in Delphi in February. Investigators released a composite sketch on Monday.

Abigail J. “Abby” Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German, 14, were found slain on Feb. 14, a day after they vanished while hiking on a trail.

Investigators released a photo and audio clip of the man. The photo and new composite sketch depicts a white male police say is between 5’6″ to 5’10” with reddish-brown hair and unknown eye color.

The investigation includes the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Delphi Police Department and the Indiana State Police.

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby says the sketch was drawn by an FBI sketch artist based on information from someone who saw the suspect.

Leazenby says the witness saw the man walking around the time the girls were slain. Leazenby says he can’t discuss where the witness saw the suspect. The FBI artist completed the sketch after recently meeting with the witness.

Investigators have received tens of thousands of tips from the public.

A $230,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Police ask anyone with information to call an established tip line at 844-459-5786, where tips can remain anonymous, or email
