DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — The victims' families of the Delphi double homicide took a tour of the investigation facilities and police updated them on how it's going so far.
Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum told News 18 they talked to both families about coming out to the media soon. They aren't sure when that's going to be, but they believe when it happens it will be at an organized press conference.
Slocum said the reason they don't want people jumping to conclusions about arrests and suspects on social media is because it compromises cooperation. People are afraid to be classified as a suspect if they offer information, and information is what they need most right now.
The reward has now increased to $200,000, after former Colts punter Pat McAfee and Colts owner Jim Irsay added $97,000 to the reward boosting its total.
Delphi Resident Brad Heath says a reward amount shouldn't matter, people should come forward with information regardless. But he is happy to see his favorite team helping out.
"This is not about sports, it's about people," Heath said. "And if they've got the means to do it, then I think that's the right thing to do. I just can't thank them enough."
