Indiana authorities say they received about 1,000 tips in 24 hours after a news conference updating their investigation into the 2017 killings of two teenage girls.
Indiana State Police said Tuesday the tips came to a task force via email, tip line and directly to participating law enforcement agencies. Officials on Monday released video, audio and a new sketch of the man suspected of killing 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams near their hometown of Delphi.
The video came from German’s cellphone, from which police previously released grainy photos and audio. State police Sgt. Kim Riley says officials aren’t commenting on technological advances they have made.
Until Monday, Riley said authorities had received about 35,000 tips since the slayings.
Tips can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authorities noted that emails should include specific tip information and not just a name and telephone number. Contact information should be provided in case clarification about the tip is necessary.
Police are specifically seeking information regarding how the subject depicted in the newly released sketch is linked to the Delphi area.
They are also asking for tips about cars parked at the abandoned CPS building parking lot between the hours of noon and 5 p.m. Feb. 13, 2017. The parking lot has since been demolished and is now a vacant lot.
