The Latest: Police to release new details in girls’ deaths
DELPHI, Ind. (AP) — The Latest on the investigation into the killings of two northern Indiana girls (all times local):
A spokesman says Indiana State Police will release “very significant information” about the 2017 deaths of two teenage girls who were killed during a hiking trip.
Agency spokesman Sgt. Kim Riley said Monday that no arrest warrants have been issued and no arrests have been made in the killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams. But he says investigators will release new information Monday about the unsolved case.
Riley says State Police Superintendent Doug Carter and a State Police captain will be making statements but won’t take questions.
The teenagers’ bodies were found in February 2017 in a rugged, wooded area a day after they went hiking near Delphi, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis.

The bodies of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were found in February 2017 in a rugged, wooded area, one day after they went hiking near Delphi, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis. The slayings remain unsolved.
Investigators have reviewed thousands of leads looking for a man who forced the teens off the trail, ordering them to go “down the hill.” Police also have released a composite sketch from eyewitnesses who believe they saw the man in Delphi.
