Tips urged on slayings in Delphi

Associated Press

A year after two northern Indiana teenage girls vanished during a hiking trip and were later found slain, police investigating the unsolved killings hope the crime's anniversary spurs a wave of tips that can help lead them to an arrest.

State Police Superintendent Doug Carter planned a Tuesday news conference at the wooded, roadside site near Delphi where 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams began their hike to reiterate authorities' commitment to solving the crime and renew their plea for tips.

“We want people to look at themselves and say, 'This is something that I've not told – something I've heard or seen – and it's time for me to pass that on,'” State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said Tuesday. “We need to solve this case, to get this person off the street.”
