LOCAL, 3A; USA TODAY, 1B DELPHI Police served a search warrant Thursday night at a home on West Bicycle Bridge Road, but no one is in custody, Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said. Riley said police interviewed a person and served the warrant at his home looking for information about killings of Liberty German and Abigail Williams, but police did not recover anything.

Earlier Thursday, police set up a dedicated phone line to gather tips on the slayings of the Delphi teenagers. The number is 844-459-5786. Any tips about the killings should be made to that number. Tipsters may remain anonymous, if they wish, police said.

RENSSELAER In between their classes on Thursday, many Saint College students attended a college fair set up on campus to help them find a new school.
