The owner of the National Football League franchise Indianapolis Colts, Jim Irsay, and former team punter Pat McAfee have reportedly combined to nearly double the available reward money for information leading to the arrest of anyone responsible for killing two teenage girls in Indiana two weeks ago.

McAfee took to his Twitter account to make a video along with Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter on Wednesday to ask the public for help in solving the heinous crime.  To help, McAfee announced the existing reward fund would be more than doubled from $97,000 to $200,000. In the video, McAfee also announced that the Colts team owner Jim Irsay had contributed money to increase the reward fund.

13-year-old Abigail J. Williams and 14-year-old Liberty Rose Lynn German were found murdered on an hiking trail nearly two weeks ago.  Thus far, police have only released a grainy photo and some difficult to understand audio of a man that they believe was involved with the girl’s murders.

The police tip line for the case is 844-459-5786 and they are asking anyone with information to call.
