DELPHI, IN – According to a number of sources, Richard Allen was arrested and lodged in the Carroll County Jail on Friday in connection with the Delphi homicide investigation. According to sources, Allen, 50, was transferred to a state facility for his protection. An important discovery in the 2017 deaths of Libby German and Abby Williams, according to law enforcement sources, is in the works, and a news conference with more information is expected for Monday, according to reports to FOX59.
On February 13, 2017, the teenagers vanished off the Monon High Bridge. Their remains were discovered on February 14, 2017, at midday, after being reported missing. Since the high-profile murder case has been unresolved for more than five years, a tonne of online rumors have been spread regarding who the murderer is. Two distinct sketches of potential suspects were published by the police.

Police released an audio recording of a man stating, “Down the hill,” as part of the audio and photographs from Libby German‘s phone that was considered to be crucial evidence. Court records uncovered by the Murder Sheet Podcast over the summer revealed an FBI agent thought there was good reason to investigate Ron Logan‘s property, the owner of the property where the girls’ bodies were discovered.
On March 17, 2017, the property was searched by the authorities. Additional information regarding the inquiry was revealed by the search warrant, including the fact that the recording in which the “down the hill” audio was first heard initially lasted 43 seconds, only a portion of which has been made available to the general public.
Investigators concluded that the culprit would have blood on their hands or clothing because of the enormous amount of blood they discovered at the site. The person may have “positioned and staged” the bodies of the kids as well as collected a “souvenir” from the crime scene, according to court records.
According to the warrant, the investigating agent thought Logan’s physical characteristics matched those of the man seen in Libby’s phone video. His voice “was not incongruous” with the publically available recording. Investigators claim that Logan also made up an alibi. He was never charged or identified as a suspect in the Delphi case. Later, he passed away.
Authorities’ recent revelation that Libby had connected with “Anthony shots” on social media has given the case, which has drawn widespread attention, new urgency. Police were able to link that profile to a person named Kegan Kline who was under investigation in relation to a case of child exploitation. He has never been accused of a crime or mentioned as a suspect in relation to the murders in Delphi.
Regarding the incident, Kline has been questioned. His 30-count child pornography possession charge is currently pending in court. Indiana State Police have reportedly been seeking relevant evidence in Peru’s Wabash River for the past few months.
