Indiana authorities leave Colorado

Daniel Nations is being held in jail for felony menacing and reckless endangerment. Daniel Nations is being held in jail for felony menacing and reckless endangerment.

After spending several days investigating whether 32-year-old Daniel Nations was a suspect in an Indiana double-murder earlier this year, Indiana State Police returned home Monday.

In a news release, the officers said: "The Indiana State Police can share, that thus far, there has been no information developed to specifically include or exclude Daniel Nations as a suspect in the Delphi homicides"

The Delphi homicides are in reference to the murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German, who were found dead along a trail near Delphi, Indiana in February this year.

The Indiana investigators said they were called on Sept. 29 to investigate a possible link to the murders and returned to Indiana Monday afternoon.

Nations was stopped for having a broken tail light last Monday afternoon in Woodland Park. In the probable cause affidavit, Officer Timothy Bradly told the court that he recognized the car Nations was riding in as matching a description given for the suspected menacing case from El Paso County.  During the traffic stop, officers recovered a .22 caliber rifle in the trunk which Nations said belonged to his wife. 

He is a registered sex offender and has open warrants out of Indiana for failing to register as a sex offender, marijuana possession and driving without a license. His wife Katelyn and two children were also in the car.

Court records show that Nations was convicted of indecent exposure in South Carolina back in 2008 and again for public indecency in Bartholomew County, Indiana in 2015.  Nations has been charged multiple times with domestic violence. He was convicted in 2012 on a felony charge of Habitual Drunk Driving in South Carolina.

Posts on social media about the menacing incident suggested that, in late August, a man charged at people along Mount Herman Road with a hatchet.  When questioned by the Woodland Park police about about the menacing incidents, Nations admitted to owning a hatchet but denied threatening anyone with it saying "we're not that kind of people."

He complained that someone ran their vehicle off the road but added that he only shook his fist at them and did not have the hatchet in his hand. The menacing incidents reportedly happened near the same area where bicyclists Tim Watkins was shot and killed earlier this month.

Detectives with the El Paso County Sheriffs Office also interviewed Nations. However, they have made no public connection between him and the Tim Watkins homicide investigation. The new arrest warrant remains sealed.

Nation's bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety.
