LAFAYETTE, Ind,. (WLFI) — New information has surfaced about the criminal history of the man being questioned in the Delphi double homicides.

As News 18 first reported Wednesday night, Daniel Nations was arrested on Monday. That's after allegedly threatening people with a hatchet on a trail in El Paso County, Colorado.

Nations is also being investigated for the murder of a bicyclist who was shot near the same trail.

In June 2007, Nations was convicted of Indecent Exposure in South Carolina. That's according to the Indiana Sex Offender Registry website.

The site says Nations exposed himself in front of a 24-year-old woman while in his vehicle in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.

According to records filed in Johnson County Superior Court Wednesday, Nations failed to register as a sex offender in Johnson County.

It all started on April 10 when Nations called the sheriff's office to register. He told deputies he was living at the InTown Suites Motel.

When deputies went to confirm his residency on July 18, the motel's manager told deputies Nations moved out on May 12.

Nations didn't give a new address, which prompted a warrant for his arrest.

The Carroll County Sheriff said it was Nations criminal record and the recent arrest in Colorado that pointed to him as a possible double homicide suspect.
