The Indiana State Police on Monday released a composite sketch believed to be connected to the deaths of two teenaged girls five months ago.

The person depicted in the composite drawing is described as a white male between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10, weighing 180 to 220lbs, with reddish brown hair. The man's eye color is unknown, and a hat in the sketch may not be accurate; police ask viewers to focus on the person's facial features.

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby (tohb LEHZ'-ehn-BEE') says the witness saw the man walking around the time 14-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams were slain near their hometown of Delphi, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis.

Anyone with information about the murders or the person depicted in the composite sketch, should call the tip line at 844-459-5786.

A $230,000 reward is being offered by authorities for information into the murders.
