Tip in Indiana Teens’ Double Homicide Leads to Arrest in Unrelated Cold-Case Killing

A tip to law enforcement about the February slayings of two Indiana teenagers led to an arrest in an unrelated, decade-old cold case after a man allegedly confessed during police questioning, PEOPLE confirms.

The man under arrest in the cold case is not considered a suspect in the slaying of the teens, Randy Pryor, the sheriff in Cass County, Indiana, tells PEOPLE.

In February, Indiana teens Liberty German and best friend Abigail Williams were reported missing. Their bodies were discovered the following day not far from where they were last seen alive.

Their killer — who police believe was a man seen in on a cell phone photo taken by German on the hiking trail near where the girls’ bodies were found — has not been identified or found.

Last week, under police questioning in connection with that investigation, Kevin Sellers, of Logansport, Indiana, allegedly confessed to fatally shooting his uncle, David Sellers, in 2007,
