Daniels says they're re-interviewing all of the children and taking the most credible information they can to solve the cases.  There's no one in custody yet but Daniels says other agencies are helping in the investigation, including the FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit, local FBI and U.S. Marshals as well as the State Police and Champaign County Police Department.
