Police have the face and voice of a man they believe killed two girls - but still no name video

Police have long believed they know the voice of a man suspected of killing two teenage girls hiking near an old railroad bridge outside of Delphi, Indiana, United States.

Now, they want the public to see his face.

Indiana State Police investigators have released an artist's composite sketch of the double-murder suspect, hoping someone in the public can help solve the 4-month-old killings of 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams.

Police investigators have released an artist's composite sketch of the double-murder suspect.

The pair were reported missing on February 13 by their families, who had dropped them off to let the girls hike the Delphi Historic Trails, according to a news release. Their bodies were found the next day by volunteers who'd organised a search when they didn't return home.

The bodies of Liberty German (right) and Abigail Williams (left) were found by volunteers who'd organised a search when they didn't return home.

Early in the investigation, police released an eerie recording captured on Liberty's cellphone using its video camera function - a male voice saying "down the hill" - hoping it would be enough for someone to recognise the person speaking.

It wasn't. And the double homicide remains open four months later.

Authorities also released a blurry photograph of a man wearing jeans and a blue jacket walking on a path in front of some trees. He has brown hair and appears to be walking with his hands in his pockets.

Law enforcement officers have distributed a photo of a person observed on the Delphi Historic Trail.

Law enforcement officers have distributed a photo of a person observed on the Delphi Historic Trail.

Indiana State Police Sergent Kim Riley told Indianapolis Fox-affiliate WXIN that the sketch was a "very important development" that gives people "a better view of the person."

"It shows a little more facial features it gives you a little more information on what we're looking at, who the suspect might be, and that's why we feel that it's very important that this picture is out there at this time," he said.

"Someone knows who this individual is," Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter said at an earlier news conference. "Is it a family member? Is it a neighbour? Is it an acquaintance? Is it an associate? Or maybe that one guy, who lives over at that one place that just kind of not right."
