    RULES OF THIS DISCUSSION

    1) There are no named POIs or suspects in this case. A search warrant was served upon the owner of the property (RL) where the girls' bodies were found. RL was taken into custody for an unrelated crime during that time. His statements to press and subsequent arrest for the unrelated matters are all open for discussion.
    a. You may not outright accuse him of the murders but may make comparisons of his physical appearance and demeanor from MSM to those of the unidentified suspect on the bridge.

    b. DO NOT post photos of random individuals to compare to the images of unidentified suspect on the bridge.

    2) IF YOU WANT TO POST ABOUT A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER YOU MUST GET PERMISSION FIRST. Please send a PM to a moderator to gain that permission.

    3) Do not sleuth family, PERIOD. This includes previous public records which have nothing to do with this case. They are victims here. Plain and simple.


    4) If you feel you have a tip by all means phone it in. Do NOT discuss your tip here. Contact the authorities and give them time to follow your lead.

    Police to release ‘important’ new information regarding Delphi murder suspect
    JULY 17, 2017

    DELPHI, Ind. – More than five months after the disappearance of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams, investigators with Indiana State Police say they will release “important” and “significant” information regarding the suspect in the Delphi murder investigation.

    The information is expected to come this morning by 10 a.m.

    Police to release ‘significant’ information regarding Delphi murder investigation


    Sgt. Kim Riley tells CBS4 it will help clarify some of the pictures that have been seen related to the investigation and the man on the bridge.

    Riley says this is the result of information to the tip line and follow-up investigations in the past couple of weeks.

    According to police, there are no arrests at this time, and Riley could not comment as to whether they are close to making an arrest.

    Please keep the discussion limited to today's news. Depending on what is released will determine how long the thread will remain open.

    Fingers crossed.

    Thank you

    The sketch comes nearly five months after the last piece of evidence was disclosed by a team of investigators comprised of local, state and federal authorities, including the FBI.

    With those exceptions, police have remained tight-lipped, declining to release further evidence from German's phone or comment on the details of the girls' injuries.
    Detectives have sifted through 18,000 tips and have interviewed at least 1,000 people as part of the high-profile double homicide investigation.
    While several unrelated arrests have been made during the investigation, a suspect in the slayings has not been identified.
    Meanwhile, a reward fund for information leading to an arrest has continued to grow, surpassing $230,000

    This morning googling news a NYTimes article came up quoting Sgt Riley that changes up the details a little bit about the sketch and how it was obtained. It's dated Tuesday 7/18/17. With all due respect to LE, just wanted to show the variations put out since Monday morning.

    1st version: At the press conference Monday morning 7/17/17 Sgt Riley made an apparent slip saying "she" when referring to a witness.
    2nd version: Later on Monday 7/17/17 subsequent news articles via Associated Press quoted Sheriff Leazenby as saying the 'witness saw the man walking near Delphi..only recently met with an FBI sketch artist...he cannot discuss where the witness saw the unidentified man...' http://www.nbc29.com/story/35903873/...a-teens-deaths

    3rd most recent version in italics below:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/18/u...na-sketch.html
    Sgt. Riley said in the interview on Tuesday that the sketch of the suspect had been made from information the authorities received from public tips, but he declined to say whether the information came from one or more people or how it was handed over.

    “It came through because of information that we received from persons that were in the area,” around the time the girls went missing, he said. “Either we did not make contact for the first time, or they were afraid to come forward.”

    Sgt. Riley said the sketch artist had started about a month ago to piece together the descriptions, frequently consulting the witness or witnesses to refine the drawing. Investigators also interview people offering descriptions to make sure they are not just trying to get someone into trouble, he said.

    “It takes quite a while to get a sketch put together,” Sgt. Riley said. “We let the person look at the picture and come back a few days later and ask, ‘Do you remember anything else?’”
    Sgt. Riley said that after the release of the sketch, extra personnel were brought on to help with the expected influx of information.

    70 miles-60 miles is 10 miles, to me that's pretty close to saying Delphi or the outskirts of Delphi.

    The line from the news story reads: "Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby (tohb LEHZ'-ehn-BEE') says the witness saw the man walking around the time 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were slain near their hometown of Delphi, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis."

    It is explaining that Delphi is about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis, not that the witness saw the man in the sketch 60 miles northwest of Delphi.

    *eta: My post was agreeing with what you said Delphi is the location *
    Missing the point, I was confused about the first post, it still makes no sense. What does Attica have to do with it?
    My posts are my opinion only unless I provided links for facts, I respect yours and all opinions that are different then mine.

    Please don't confuse facts with opinions it can effect more then our own little world.

    Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby says investigators received at least 1,000 leads via email and telephone within 24 hours of Monday’s release of the FBI artist’s sketch of the man. Prior to releasing the sketch, police said tips had decreased to about 10 per day. “The public is looking at this again… it’s helping. It’s also encouraging for the investigators, too,” ISP Sgt. Kim Riley said

    Whew! When I arrived at the previous (closed) thread this morning and saw Tricia's post about not to discuss Duvall, I was afraid the entire thread had been shut down. I never jump to the end of a closed thread to immediately go to the next thread because I want to read all that I've missed so I was really really glad to see that this is still open. Hoping that today's the day for justice! Also hoping that today's the day that there will be no discussion about hats or anything else that will put this thread in jeopardy.
    Letters from Prison

    https://lettersfromprisonsite.wordpress.com


    This site is in remembrance of a dear friend that was incarcerated at the age of 16. Serving three consecutive life sentences with no chance of parole led him to suicide at the age of 25. These are excerpts from his letters during the last four years of his life, the end of 2012 to the beginning of 2017. Four days before his suicide, I received these chilling last words. "I will try to get a medication change soon. I do not think my current meds are working. At least that seems to be the case."

    Something I noticed about the sketch that I can't get a grasp on just yet.

    There appears to be a lighter colored circle somewhat between his eyes on his forehead. I'm having a hard time trying to describe it. See picture.

    So, I'm wondering why that area is lighter in color that the rest of the area? Could this be from sunglasses? Anyone else with any other thoughts?


    LOL. He looks like he has a bullseye on him when I circle the spot....LOL

    Let today be the day!!

    I'm hoping they put his picture on the electronic billboards, this would be helpful for people that are not familiar with the case.

    The artist used lighter coloring to denote the raised parts of his face. The glabella, the space between the eyebrows, is raised.
