State police have released a sketch of a person they believe is connected to the February murder of two Delphi teens.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, FBI, Delphi Police Department and the Indiana State Police are asking the public to help identify the person depicted in the composite sketch, which isbased on information recived during the course of the investigation. 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. His eye color is unknown.

Police say the sketch depicts a hat that may not be accurate, and they ask that the public focus on the person’s facial features.  

Fourteen-year-old Liberty German vanished with 13-year-old Abigail Williams on Feb. 13 while hiking a trail near their hometown of Delphi. Their bodies were found the next day in nearby woods.

Investigators released two grainy images in late February of a man they consider the main suspect in the killings. They also released audio of a male saying "down the hill." That evidence came from German's cellphone.

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.  Tips may also be emailed to

A reward in excess of $230,000 is offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these murders.
