DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — ISP confirms detectives are still in Colorado questioning Daniel Nations in the Delphi double homicide case.

Sergeant Riley says he's unable to speak about what detectives have been working on. At this point, he's unsure when they will return to Indiana.

Nations was arrested last Monday after allegedly threatening people with a hatchet on a trail in El Paso County, Colorado.

Police there say he was arrested after being stopped for driving with expired Indiana plates. He was initially booked on a weapons charge.

He has also been charged with menacing and reckless endangerment and is being investigated for the murder of a bicyclist near that same trail.

Nations has since been named a person of interest in the killings of Abby Williams and Libby German.

"Basically they'll analyze the information that they received out there, any evidence they received that they found out there and they will look at what we got and see if this is a possible subject that we need to be looking at," said Indiana State Police Sergeant Kim Riley.

Riley says investigators are still receiving a handful of tips every day. He wants to remind the public not to jump to conclusions, which could compromise the investigation.

Riley says we could learn new information as early as this week.
