DELPHI, Ind. (WBBM NEWSRADIO) - Indiana State Police are to release new information Monday afternoon about the 2017 murders of two teenage girls in a wooded area north of Indianapolis.

Police are calling the new information a "significant update" and that the investigation is going in a new direction. State police said Superintendent Doug Carter will make the announcement at 11 a.m. CST.

The bodies of 14-year-old Liberty "Libby" German and 13-year-old Abigail "Abby" Williams were found in February 2017 on a hiking trail near Delphi, about 60 miles (95 kilometers) northwest of Indianapolis. 

Libby's mother spoke recently with CBS 4 Indianapolis. 

"Cautiously hopeful," she said. "I've gotten my hopes up before only to relive it again and it's awful. I don't want to do that again."

Detectives have been working off a grainy picture of the suspected killer and some audio taken from Libby's phone. 

The case has remained unsolved for more than two years.
