Multiple sources indicate that a man named Richard Allen was booked into the Carroll County Jail Friday in connection with the Delphi murder investigation. Allen, 50, has been moved to a state facility for his safety, sources said.
Earlier, law enforcement sources told FOX59 that a major development was in the works in the 2017 murders of Libby German and Abby Williams, with a news conference scheduled for Monday with additional details.
Police released two different sketches of potential suspects. Key evidence included audio and photos from Libby German’s phone, with police releasing an audio clip of a man saying, “Down the hill.”Court documents unearthed by the Murder Sheet Podcast over the summer showed an FBI agent believed there was probable cause to search the property of Ron Logan, who owned the land on which the girls’ bodies were found.
The search warrant revealed additional details about the investigation, including that the recording in which the “down the hill” audio originally lasted 43 seconds, only a fraction of which has been released to the public.
Additionally, investigators found a large amount of blood at the scene, leading them to believe the perpetrator would’ve gotten blood on their hands or clothing. The individual may have taken a “souvenir” from the crime scene, according to court documents, and may have also “moved and staged” the teens’ bodies.
