Indiana authorities release sketch of suspect in murders of two teens found in the woods – New York Daily News

Indiana State Police have released a sketch of a man Monday believed to be the main suspect in the murders of two teens who were found dead in the woods in February.

The sketch shows a man sporting a goatee with a hat and a hoodie. Police describe him as a white man with reddish brown hair, standing 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10 and weighing about 120 to 180 pounds.

Friends Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, went missing on Feb. 13 after a hike on the Delphi Historic Trails. The teens’ bodies were found the next day in the woods, miles away from Indianapolis. Their deaths were ruled a homicide, and police didn’t say how they were killed.

Sgt. Kim Riley stated that the sketch was a “composite drawing” resulting from “information received during the course of this ongoing investigation.”

Riley has urged the public to focus on the suspect’s facial features as the investigation into the murders continues. No arrests have been made in the five months since the teens vanished.

Authorities have issued a reward of more than $230,000 for information leading to an arrest in the teens’ killings.
