Ex-Colts player, owner boost reward in search for girls' killer

The reward for information in the murders of two Indiana teenagers now stands at $200,000.

Retired Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted out a video Wednesday morning to appeal for more tips and clues in the case. He said he and Colts owner Jim Irsay had donated money to bring the total reward to $200,000.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter appears in the video with McAfee, which includes a picture of the prime suspect along with an audio recording of a voice saying, “Down the hill.” Both pieces of evidence were recovered from the cell phone of 14-year-old Liberty German.
