A convicted sex offender arrested in connection with a murder in Colorado may be connected to the February murders of Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13.
Their bodies were found back in February, along Deer Creek near Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
Denver TV station KCNC reports they were told by police that 31-year-old Daniel Nations, who was caught in a vehicle with an expired Indiana license plate, has “similarities” with other cases.
Nations was arrested Monday after he allegedly threatened several people with a hatchet along a popular Monument trail, the same trail a man was gunned down two weeks ago while riding his bike.
Nations is listed as a convicted sex offender on the South Carolina sex offender registry.
No further details on his possible connection to the Delphi case were released, but the expired Indiana license plate has raised some questions.
On Wednesday, Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said Nations is being considered in the Delphi investigation, according to WNDU.
Nations is being held in the Teller County Jail, charged with possession of a weapon by a previous offender. Other charges are pending.
