Delphi pours out in support of grieving families of murdered teens

The man who murdered Abigail Williams, 13, and liberty German, 14, may be the man in a picture that has been distributed by Indiana State Police since Wednesday.

Police have not tracked down the killer, but said they won't give up until they do. Today, that status changed, according to police.

"The photo appears to depict a white male wearing blue jeans, a blue coat/jacket, and a hoodie", police stated. On Sunday, however, Indiana State Police said the man "is suspected of having participated in the murders".

Volunteers who were helping with the case discovered the bodies of the girls.

Their bodies were found Tuesday afternoon along Deer Creek near Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

"Delphi is one of the safest places, and now, to think something could have happened here in our own town - it's scary", resident Melissa Deal, a family friend of the two girls, told ABC News.

It has been a long week full of unanswered questions for people in Delphi, but on Saturday the community took a break from focusing on the investigation or fundraisers and instead they used the day as a time to grieve and remember the girls.

A manhunt for the killer had intensified prior to this announcement, and local police have been assisted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the case.

Slocum is urging the public to call police with tips about the man. Police on Wednesday released two photos of the man walking Monday along the city of Delphi's trail system around the time the girls were dropped off.

On Thursday, officers executed a search warrant at a home in Delphi, but investigators said no solid evidence was found.
