Indiana Police have released a sketch for a man who is wanted in connection with the brutal murder of two teens.
In a statement released by the police department the chief issued a message to the suspected killer "We believe you are hiding in plain sight. For more than two years, you never thought we would shift gears to a different investigative strategy, but we have," he said.Carter also taunted the suspect, calling him "a coward" and saying authorities have likely already interviewed him or someone close to him. He also suggested that the man's friends or family might suspect that he killed the girls "because of how different you are since the murders." "The question to you: What will those closest to you think of when they find out that you brutally murdered two little girls? Two children. Only a coward would do such a thing," Carter said.
The brief video of the suspect and additional audio that was also released Monday came from German's cellphone, from which police previously released grainy photos and audio. Authorities have hailed German as a hero for recording potentially crucial evidence before she was killed.
The girls' bodies were found the following day in a rugged, wooded area about a quarter-mile from the bridge, which is near a local trail network the girls had planned to explore.
The chief is asking that the family of the victims not be contacted as new eveidence is still being discovered. If you have any information regarding this incident, you are urged to contact the Indiana Police Department
