Recently, the police arrested Richard Allen for the killings of two teenage girls: 13-year-old Abigail “Abby” Williams and 14-year-old Liberty “Libby” German in the Delphi murders.
News channels and social media platforms reported the arrest of Richard Allen for the Delphi murders after a five-year investigation.
According to WTTV, 50-year-old Richard was implicated in the 2017 murders of the two teenage girls. He was apprehended on Friday, October 28, 2022, and is awaiting further legal proceedings.
Kelsi German, Libby’s sister, tweeted on Friday, “Today is the day,” stating that a press conference is scheduled for Monday.
The two girls vanished on February 13, 2017, after Libby shared a Snapchat video of Abby walking down the bridge. This was the last sighting of the girls, who were later found deceased the following day.
The Indiana Police state department’s office reported that the girls were dropped off near the Monon High Bridge in Delphi, where they ventured alone. Despite their father’s arrival to pick them up, they were nowhere to be found.
The girls’ family members filed missing persons reports, prompting the Delphi police to initiate a search. Their worst fears were confirmed when the girls’ lifeless bodies were discovered the next day.
A week later, the police unveiled an audio clip recorded by Libby, featuring a man instructing her to go “down the hill.”
Over the course of five years, multiple individuals were under suspicion by the police, and a man involved in the attack on the Capitol on January 6 was among those arrested.
During their investigation, the police examined Libby’s social media account and unearthed a fraudulent account under the name “anthony_shots,” purportedly a successful model who had been communicating with Libby prior to her and Abby’s tragic demise.
Details Revealed by the Police about the Delphi Murders
The police dedicated five years to unraveling the mystery of the Libby and Abby’s murders. During this time, they uncovered evidence, including the aforementioned audio clip and sketches released to the public.
In July 2017, the police interrogated numerous witnesses and ultimately published a sketch of their primary suspect. On April 22, 2019, Indiana State police released another sketch of a second suspect after years of investigation.
Finally, their relentless investigation led to the capture of Richard Allen, the individual responsible for taking the lives of the two innocent teenage girls.
When Did the Girls Go Missing?
According to the Indiana Police State, at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, February 13, 2017, 13-year-old Abigail Joyce “Abby” Williams and 14-year-old Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German went missing.
German’s sister dropped off Libby and Abby on County Road 300 North, located east of the Hoosier Heartland Highway.
Libby’s Snapchat video showed Abby walking on the railroad at 2:07 p.m. When her father arrived to pick them up, they were nowhere to be found.
Initially, the family conducted their search, but after combing the area, they reported Libby and Abby as missing. The following day, the family received devastating news that the girls had been found deceased.
The police discovered the bodies approximately 0.5 miles east of the abandoned Monon High Bridge, near the north bank of Deer Creek.
With the arrest of Richard Allen, the family is hopeful that justice will be served.
