He was once a person of interest in the murders of two teenagers.

Nations is now accused of failing to register as a sex offender.

Indiana authorities have interviewed Nations in connection with the murders of Abby Williams and Libby German in Delphi. Both were found dead after they didn’t return home from a hike last February.

Daniel Nations pleaded guilty last month to threatening people with a hatchet on the Mount Herman Trail near Monument last September and was sentenced to three years of supervised probation. The death of a cyclist in that same area is still under investigation.

State police in Indiana say they are not actively investigating Nations for the murder of the two young girls.
