The multi-agency task force heading up the Delphi double-homicide investigation clarified two sketches released in the case are of different people, and the person in the orginal sketch is not currently a person of interest.
Following a press conference Monday offering updated information about the investigation into the murder of two teenage girls, the public was left with questions regarding a second sketch released.
“In the early days and months of the Delphi Murder investigation, information was developed about suspect descriptions,” Indiana State Police said. “It was initially believed the sketch that has been in public view over the last two years of a person in the age range of his 40’s to 50’s was a person of interest in this murder investigation. Now, as the investigation has matured and past information has been reassessed, it is the belief of investigators with the Multi-Agency Task Force that the person depicted in the sketch released on April 22 more accurately represents the person wanted for the murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German.”
According to the task-force, he sketch released Monday is “representative of the face of the person captured in the video on Liberty German’s cell phone as he was walking on the high bridge.”
The person in the new sketch is described as having a youthful appearance, but could fall in the age range from his 20s to late 30s. Authorities also noted that the person could look different today if he has grown facial hair or changed his hair.
