Indiana authorities have interviewed Nations in connection with the murders of Williams and German in Delphi, Indiana. Both were found dead after they didn’t return home from a hike last February.
“He’s not a person I care a whole lot about at this moment in time and that’s all I will say about Daniel Nations,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter.MORE NEWS: Section Of Colorado Boulevard To Be Closed For Stormwater Project
