ISP Supt. Carter: Reports of new Delphi information 'simply not accurate'

Posted at 6:50 PM, Aug 14, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter strongly pushed back Monday on reports of new information in the case of two Delphi girls killed

Sunday marked the six-month anniversary of the disappearance of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams at the Monon High Bridge in Delphi, Indiana.

To memorialize the day, many news outlets, including RTV6, ran stories about the girls’ murders and the status of the investigation.

Some of those stories, according to Supt. Carter, contained information that was not accurate. Chiefly, that police have recovered new audio in the case. RTV6 did not report that.

“Any notion of the release of information regarding the Delphi murders is simply not accurate,” Carter said.

Carter said state police continue to encourage anyone with information in the case to call in with tips. ISP has received thousands upon thousands so far, and continues to work through them.

“The murderer is still out there and someone knows who he is,” Carter said. “We want to keep this in the forefront of Delphi, Carroll County, Indiana and all of the Midwest. One day this killer will be brought to justice. He just doesn’t know when.”
