DELPHI, Ind. (AP) - A volunteer contractor says progress has been slower than expected on the construction of a $1 million memorial park for two teenagers who were killed while hiking in northern Indiana.

The grandparents of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams requested help from volunteers to build the 20-acre park. The girls were killed in February 2017 while hiking near Delphi, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis.

The Journal and Carrier reports that contractor Rob Cochran said Thursday that construction efforts at the Abby and Libby Memorial Park in Delphi have been hindered by recent rain.

Cochran says "the conditions haven't been the best," but that his contractors will do as much as they can before road construction resumes in earnest next week.

The girls' murders remain unsolved.

Indiana State Police released a photo of a suspect, which was taken by Liberty on her cell phone the day that she died. She also captured a man’s voice saying, “down the hill” during what police call “criminal activity.” You can listen to that recording and see the photo below along with a sketch later released by Indiana State Police.

Indiana State Police ask anyone who recognizes that man or the voice, or who may have any other information about Libby or Abby’s murders to call the Tip Line at 844- 459-5786 or 800-225-5324. Tips can also be emailed to AbbyandLibbyTip@cacoshrf.com.
