Richard Allen confessed to killing two teenage girls who were hiking on a popular trail in Delphi, Indiana in 2017. Reports say the murder suspect confessed to the crimes to his wife and mother during jailhouse calls.On February 14, 2017, Liberty “Libby” German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were killed while hiking on a popular trail in Delphi, Indiana. In October 2022, Richard Allen, 50, was arrested in connection with the murders.
According to Conklin, shortly before the victims’ remains were discovered in a wooded area, German was able to use her phone to capture images of a man who walked across them on the railroad. Prosecutors then associated Allen with the murders after an investigation found that an unspent bullet obtained at the crime scene belonged to a pistol he owned.
Murder Suspect Confessed
According to Harris, in a June filing, the murder suspect allegedly confessed to the killings while talking to his wife and his mother on public jail phones. Nonetheless, Bradley Rozzi, Allen’s defense attorney, argues that his client’s statements were unreliable due to his deteriorating mental health. The June filing was reportedly disclosed on June 28, along with around a hundred documents in the murder suspect’s case.
