CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — FBI, Indiana State Police and the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office are searching a house on the property where the two Delphi teens were found dead last month.
Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said, “It is strictly part of the investigation.”
The property owner, Ron Logan, has not been named a suspect in the case at this time. Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley confirmed investigators are working to either clear him or make him a suspect.
Logan is currently in the Carroll County Jail on a probation violation charge. Riley said information they received spurred the search warrant and more than 15 investigators are assisting in the investigation of the property and home.
Law enforcement began the search around 11 a.m. Riley said Logan’s home was not initially part of the investigation when it first began, just the property where the girls were found in a wooded area behind the home.
Leazenby hopes people won’t jump to conclusions when they serve search warrants like this one. Police are just doing their jobs to leave no rock unturned in this investigation.
Around a dozen search warrants have already been served and hundreds of people have been questioned in the case.
“He’s not a suspect, we’re just following up on the investigation leads,” Riley said. “We got people now, down there, going through the house from the search warrant.”
Riley said issuing these search warrants is just standard procedure and wants to remind the public to refrain from spreading false information.
No one is under arrest at this time in connection with the homicides, but investigators continue to follow up on the more than 13,000 tips received.
Riley added the reward fund is now more than $230,000.
