    Not reinstated, another prosecutor was appointed after Ives took early retirement at the end of 2017, a year prior the end of his term due to something about a personal matter iirc. But a few months ago reportedly he did return in an assistant prosecutor role. It may mean something related to this case or maybe not, depending if the reason he stepped down has been resolved and he just misses the job.

    This is one of the best posts I've read recently on this case and gives such a great example on how these cases can stall...but also hope that one day it can be solved. Thank you.

    Delphi has a police department so if this case could be solved just by looking at somebody’s appearance, officers would only need to walk about town.

    But resemblance without any other information poses a problem as the sketch isn’t a photograph. LE needs evidence to work with and so it seems they’re looking for a tip supported by information from a tipster, giving them something to work with. Several times in the past it’s been stated they believe the killer has told somebody the details. Whether that’s wishful thinking or not, I’m certain the “one tip” they’re waiting for includes incriminating information about a person who has a known past or present connection to the broad Delphi area, but specifically knowledge of the high bridge trail.

    agree on all points. I think there is some twisted religious interpretation of the murders and some grandiose fantasy of the meaning of it and the idea of redemption - on the murderer's family's terms and among themselves only.

    Maybe not as totally outlandish as it sounds, who knows .... Double murderer, who is changing his optics x times during the "mission" - that would go down in crime history and perhaps that is intended.

    I know I was joking but seriously he could have changed his attire as we have discussed many times. Also the reddish brown hair must have come from somewhere, witnesses or crime scene for example.
    That is a possibility in this case I believe. Perhaps someone hiding from a warrant, or just bonded out or just released, high on drugs or alcohol. That is the type of crime I think this is.

    Maybe even now incarcerated elsewhere and so the ex prosecutor comes back to work on the case a bit more.

    I have had a search in My Case and there does not seem to be many cases that has Ives name on since he returned in April so I wonder what he is actually working on? And no prosecutor at the April PC has been commented on as unusual, so something has to be going on behind the scenes.

    This has not had an update yet either -

    Police want to know if Etter is tied to Delphi killings

    "Etter's case has not been closed yet, Tippecanoe County sheriff's Sgt. Thad Miller said, adding that they passed on information about Etter to Carroll County investigators as part of the routine police work. But he doubted that Etter is at the top of the list of possible suspects.

    "We have shared information about Etter with them, but we've done that with other suspects, too," Miller said."

    Here's hoping they are actually working on something behind the scenes anyway.

    Good point. Yet why do they think the public is going to recognise him in that case? Do you think the one person he told is an accomplice or alibi? If so that person is in great danger if still alive.

    I agree with the IDing him part, mu hunch is someone or some people know or have a suspicion they know who he is, they just haven't contacted LE.

    The April Tinsley case here in Fort Wayne comes to mind. The dimwitted killer taunted LE for years, even going so far as to write messages in his own handwriting. When he was caught, his brother mentioned to LE and the media that he always thought the handwriting samples released to the media looked like his brother's

    I'm still curious why it's so significant that the prosecuting office wasn't at the April PC. Sincerely, I don't know anything about PCs, so I'm wondering at the meaning.

    Aren't we all thinking the same thing and aren't we allowed to use initials if said person has not been named. or is it totally off limits because the presser gave hints that are almost impossible to ignore.

    No initials no names of persons not named, by name, by LE as POI.

    If LE has a suspect, who is well-known/identifiable in the community, I'm wondering if not that person would be getting harassed? It's hard for me to get my head around a POI walking the local streets when there are many who would suspect him. Not discounting the notion at all, just not able to form a picture of what that looks like on a day to day basis there in town.

    Me too. Why does the Prosecutor have to be there? I don't remember him being at the anniversary PC's held outside.

    I've been looking at the SC photos again and there's something I don't understand. It's been assumed that the b/w photo looking south on the bridge (not including Abby) was taken first, and then a bit further across the bridge, Libby stepped onto the platform and turned around to take the photo of Abby. Okay, that seems logical, but since they both say "7 h ago," we only really know they were taken within the same hour's time, right? Did she post them at the same time, or separately? Couldn't she have saved them to memories and posted later, like at the end of the bridge or something? Also, why is the timer in the upper right hand corner so much different on the two circulated photos? Were they saved by someone at different times during the 24 hours they were available?

    So much weight is put on the SC photo timing, I just want to understand.
