Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, were both found dead in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, approximately 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Law enforcement is investigating the case as a double homicide.

Police said that there have been approximately 3,900 tips received via phone and email. 1,900 of those tips came after the release of an audio recording of a man saying “down the hill” from Liberty’s cellphone, heard in the PSA. Liberty also captured a grainy imaged released by police last week of a man walking near the hiking trail outside Delphi.

NewsChannel 15 obtained the PSA at WMRS radio in Monticello.

State police Cpt. Dave Bursten said investigators aren’t certain the voice was that of the man in the photograph whom investigators are calling the main suspect in the deaths. That man hasn’t been identified and no arrests have been made.
