DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana State Police are expecting to receive more tips in a local high profile case. That's because the episode of Dr. Phil on Wednesday focuses on the double homicide investigation that shocked the Delphi community.

Abby Williams and Libby German's family filmed this episode last week in California. The families still need justice after their girls were found dead in February on the Delphi historic trails.

German's grandparents, Mike and Becky Patty will be sitting with Dr. Phil. Along with Williams mother, Anna Williams. ISP Superintendent Doug Carter will also be on the show.

This is the second episode of the Dr. Phil series "Girls Gone". The show addresses an epidemic happening across the nation.
Dr. Phil shows young women whose lives are full of promise and hope. Then explains how the disappearance or death of these young women still remains a mystery.

Sergeant Kim Riley hopes Wednesday's episode will bring in more tips to find justice for Libby and Abby.

"What I understand, there's over 125 million people that watch that show and that's worldwide, not just here in the United States," Riley said. "It's gonna help, it's gonna let people know what's going on. That we are trying to solve this. This is not a cold case. That we are still very very much into this case."

ISP has released this information on who they believe is the person responsible. There is an audio recording, a picture, and composite sketch of the suspect. If you have information regarding the case call the Tip Hotline at 844-459-5786.

Riley also spoke to News 18 about Daniel Nations. Nations is a person of interest in the Delphi double homicide.

"We've not really completely ruled out anybody," said Riley. "We're still looking at everybody that we've already talked to. We're going back and talking to them again. So is Daniel Nations our big top number, no. He's just another one in the field that we're still looking at."
