(Newser) – Abby Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, went for a hike on a trail near their small community of Delphi, Indiana, on Feb. 13, 2017, and never returned. The girls' bodies were found the following day near the trail, but no arrests have been made. At one point, police released chilling audio of the suspected killer instructing the girls to go "down the hill," audio recovered from Libby's smartphone. Now, police are releasing more audio and video, along with a new sketch, in the hope that someone will recognize the man—because they think he lives in the Delphi area. The details on Monday's developments:

  • New video: See a brief video of the suspect walking on the bridge where the girls were last seen here. Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter asked people to examine the man's gait and mannerisms. The video came from Libby's phone.
  • More audio: Listen to the new audio of the suspect here. It's a slightly expanded version of the previously released "down the hill" clip.
