Police release sketch of suspect in double murder of Indiana girls

Indiana state police released a composite sketch of the suspect who they believe killed two teenage girls in February as they hiked in the wilderness near their hometown 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The sketch uses information from all of the agencies involved in the investigation, including the FBI, and is considered a major development in the case, Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley told CBS News.

In February, police released a photo of the suspect as well as a voice recording, which may be connected to the murders, both of which were obtained from one of the girls’ cellphones.

The person in the sketch is a white male between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish brown hair, according to Indiana State Police. Police also said the sketch depicts a hat that may not be accurate.

There is a reward of up to $216,000 for information leading to the capture of the murderer.

Abigail Joyce “Abby” Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German, 14, were last seen alive at 1 p.m. on February 13 near the Monon High Bridge, an abandoned rail bridge over Deer Creek, where they were left to walk around. When the girls didn’t show up, an extensive search followed. Their bodies were discovered the next day near the Delphi Historic Trail, approximately one-half mile upstream from the bridge.
