DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Over the past year, thousands of dollars have come in for information leading to an arrest in the Delphi Double Homicide. 

Money has been raised for the Abby and Libby Memorial park where a softball complex will be built. Other fundraisers were started to get updated trail cameras in Delphi. 

Indiana State Police Sergeant Kim Riley says so far in this case, they haven't seen any major fraud.
However, it's easy for criminals to take advantage of situations like this one. He doesn't want people to be afraid to keep donating, just be wary of everything online.

In the coming days, new fundraisers may start to pop up, police want people to focus on the ones created by local businesses and community members.

Sgt. Riley said his biggest piece of advice is to ask questions.

"More than likely if it's something that's not legitimate they will either hang up or they will just all of a sudden say 'I'm sorry you're asking too many questions' and they'll just hang up on you," said Riley.

If you'd like to donate to the reward fund, mail your donation to:


Indiana State Police Alliance
1415 Shelby Street
Indianapolis, IN 46203
