Indiana State Police have released a statement clarifying information about a newly-released sketch of a man suspected of killing two teenage girls in 2017.

The statement Wednesday said that the sketch police released Monday of a youthful-appearing man “more accurately represents the person” they believe killed 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams in February 2017.

Their statement says a composite sketch released in July 2017 of a middle-aged man was developed early in their investigation but the man it depicts “is not presently a person of interest in this investigation.”

Police add that the new sketch is “representative of the face of the person captured” in video taken from German’s cellphone of a man walking on an abandoned railroad bridge.
