ISP Warns Against Posting Pictures Alongside Delphi Sketch

Indiana State Police are urging Facebook users to stop posting pictures of men alongside the composite sketch of the Delphi murder suspect.

More than 500 new tips have been received since the release of the composite sketch of the man they believe killed 14 year old Liberty German and 13 year old Abigail Williams.

The girls disappeared in February while hiking in a wooded, remote area east of Delphi. Their bodies were found the next day in the woods.

ISP Captain Dave Bursten cited a growing problem of “armchair sleuthing” by people who are looking at websites to find mugshots of random men who resemble the sketch.

Some will then post those photos on Facebook.

Bursten says people could face a defamation of libel lawsuit.
