CALL 6: Indiana State Police to release new sketch in Delphi investigation

DELPHI, Ind. -- Indiana State Police will release a composite sketch of the suspect of the murders of Abigail Williams and Libby German on Monday, Call 6 Investigates has learned.

According to multiple sources, the new evidence may help the public identify the man on the bridge, who police call the prime suspect.

Williams and German went missing about five months ago, while on a hike along the Monon High Bridge in Delphi, Indiana. After they didn’t return to be picked up by family members, police searched through the night for 14-year-old Libby and 13-year-old Abby.

The next day, their bodies were found.

There has been no arrest, but investigators are optimistic the release of this new information will bring them closer to their motto, "Today is the Day."

In response to the new evidence being released, Mike Patty, Libby's grandfather, said, "Please spread the information."

In the five months since that day, Indiana State Police, the FBI and multiple other agencies across the state have spent countless hours investigating and interviewing witnesses and possible suspects.
