"We never dreamed that it would be him."

A 10-year-old cold case has been opened after a suspect in another investigation confessed.

According to WLFI, a tip in a double homicide led authorities in Logansport, Indiana to 39-year-old Kevin Sellers. Sellers is also accused of killing his uncle, David Sellers, in the home they shared in 2007.

"We never dreamed that it would be him," said the victim's wife after all these years. David was found dead from a single gunshot. Although Kevin was interviewed at the time, no charges were filed.

Fast forward to August 2 of this year. Kevin was asked to come to the sheriff’s office after police received a tip about the double murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German in February. Pictured above is a photo of the suspect in the murder of the two young girls.

That tip referred to David as “having killed his uncle some years before and had gotten away with it.” He ended up confessing to the murder of his uncle when interrogated and claimed that his uncle had requested that he shoot him.

Kevin is being held without bond. He is expected to appear in court on August 4.

As of now, the case of the two teen girls, Williams and German, remains open.
