Indiana State Police released this composite sketch based on information gathered during the investigation of the murders of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.

The suspect - who is wanted for the deaths of Abigail Joyce Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn German, 14, whose bodies were found on February 14 in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail in Carroll County - was described by state police as about 5-foot-8 and between 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish brown hair. The photo released Monday by authorities is the first depiciting the suspect's face. Their bodies were found the next day in a wooded area.

The person in the sketch is described as a white male between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with reddish brown hair and unknown eye color, a news release Monday said. No arrests have been made in the slayings and authorities have not disclosed the cause and manner of the girls' deaths.

In late February, police had released two grainy images of a man they consider the main suspect. She also captured a man's voice saying "down the hill" during what police call "criminal activity".

As Liu Xiaobo remained behind bars until recently, Liu Xia, 56, had paid a heavy price for simply being his wife. Liu died in a Chinese hospital Thursday after being diagnosed with late-stage liver cancer.

State police ask that people focus on the man's facial features.

The sketch depicts a hat, but police aren't sure of that detail's accuracy.

A reward of more than $230,000 is offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible.

The photos and audio came from Liberty's cellphone.
