Monday's interview was meant to expose the case to more people nationwide.

But ISP Superintendent Doug Carter made two statements that raised some questions.

"We're getting nationwide attention, and that everybody's going to be on the lookout for this fella. Not just locally," said Toni Jessee who watched the televised interview.

The families of Abby Williams and Libby German were interviewed about the case on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today.

They shared their stories and how the public can help.

State Police Superintendent Doug Carter spoke about the possibility of the killer striking again.

Carter is quoted saying, "We believe that a person that would commit a crime like this, with such incredibly evil intent, likely has committed that crime before, and with that known he likely will commit it again."

ISP Chief Public Information Officer David Bursten says the it's common sense and people shouldn't look too deeply into it.

"If somebody has killed a person, the likelihood that they'll kill somebody else is pretty prominent. So it's reasonable to expect if somebody has killed a person, they'll kill again," said Bursten.

Carter also shared his concerns about the sketch of the killer, telling viewers to "Please, disregard the face, but look at the body because anybody could identify a family member by looking at the body."

Bursten says it's important to look at all the available evidence that could help find the killer.

He said, "If somebody sees somebody that looks like that person or they know that person, they recognize the body style of that person, don't rationalize away. Call and provide a tip. Let us investigate it."

West Lafayette resident Toni Jessee also believes people should look past the sketch.

"I think we do need to focus more on what he was wearing and the clothing because people know that, especially if they know this person. They know those clothes," said Jessee.

Bursten is certain someone out there knows something that could lead to justice for Abby and Libby.

He says it's never too late to do the right thing.
