More than five years after the slayings of two Indiana teens in the small town of Delphi, details were released Tuesday in the case against the man accused in their killing.
While the document sheds new light onto what happened that day, more questions remain.
Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, never returned to a prearranged pickup spot after their walk on the Delphi Historic Trails on the afternoon of Feb. 13, 2017.
Searchers found their bodies the next morning Valentine’s Day in a wooded area not far from the Monon High Bridge, which they had visited the day before.
In October, police announced that Richard Allen, 50, of Delphi, was arrested and charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Libby and Abby.
A redacted version of the probable cause affidavit for Allen’s arrest was released Tuesday.
Delphi murder suspect arrested
Richard M. Allen, who worked at the CVS in Delphi, has been arrested and charged in the 2017 murder of Abigail Williams and Liberty German.
An unspent bullet found within two feet of one of the girl’s bodies had been cycled through a firearm owned by Allen, according to investigators.
The firearm was located by investigators at Allen’s home during a search on Oct. 13.
The affidavit contains only a few new threads of information to allege that Richard Matthew Allen was involved in the killings.
Allen is charged with Indiana’s version of a felony murder in connection with the girls’ deaths.
