The Probable Cause Of Delphi Murder Suspect Richard Allen Has Been Revealed

According to the probable cause affidavit published on Tuesday, Richard Allen is responsible for the 2017 murder of the two teenagers because he fired a.40-caliber round that was discovered close to either Libby German’s or Abby Williams’ bodies.

A semiautomatic pistol’s ejection mechanism produces marks on the shell or shell case that can be linked directly to a particular firearm. According to the affidavit, which included some redactions, the tool markings on the shell correspond to a weapon owned by Allen.

According to the affidavit, Allen admitted to never lending out or letting anyone use his weapon during a police interrogation. The affidavit states that Allen was unable to explain how a round discharged from his sidearm ended up at the crime scene.

The affidavit confirms that Libby and Abby were slain on the north banks of Deer Creek on February 13, 2017, however it does not specify how they were killed.

The girls are not directly named in the document. They are called Victim 1 and Victim 2, instead.

A man was seen walking behind them on the Monon High Bridge on the trails east of Delphi in a widely circulated video that was shot by Libby. According to the affidavit, one of the teenagers yells “gun” as the man approaches the girls in the video.

Allen told authorities in 2017 that he had been on the trails east of Delphi between 1:30 and 3:30 on the day the girls were killed. Allen was charged on October 28 with two counts of murder in the commission of a felony.
