ISP: Delphi investigation moving in new direction

DELPHI, Ind. (WFIE via WTHR) — Indiana State Police are planning a news conference for Monday on the investigation into the murder of two young girls.

The announcement is said to be about the investigation having a new direction.

The public is invited to attend at The Canal Center at 1030 North Washington Street in Delphi at noon (Eastern) on Monday.

Abby Williams and Libby German had been hiking near their hometown of Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis on February 13, 2017.

A day later, on Valentine's Day, their bodies were found in a rugged, wooded area.

Investigators have released an FBI artist’s composite sketch of the suspect, a white man with a prominent nose and a goatee. Two grainy photos of the suspect and an audio recording of a man saying “down the hill” has also been released — evidence that came from German’s cellphone.
