There were other suspects people had (very) strong feelings about, but cases like this highlight that most towns are crawling with predators and perverts, most of whom know how to keep a low profile. Redditors and podcast hosts are just as prone to tunnel vision as real-life investigators, but with far fewer facts and resources at their disposal.

i've been checking out various posts on the subreddit for the Delphi Murders and it appears this guy was NOT on anyone's radar (except LE). No priors and no DNA might have been the original reasons for no resolution. Kegan Kline, who was considered a person of interest for a time and has subsequently been charged with child porn, has allegedly provided a tip (or several) and there could be a child porn connection here.

Here's a wild theory. Several of the previous suspects were known to each other on some level because all viewed child porn. Maybe they used fake names but were in a wider network exchanging pictures/videos.

When earlier perps were accused and then found innocent of the murders they led to another child porn viewer who took his sick fetish too far.

Children who are overweight sometimes are stuffing their feelings. Or subconscioulsy trying to make themselves visually undesirable to predatory males. Wonder if the perp molested his own daughter?

by Anonymousreply 46October 29, 2022 6:47 AM

Not so wild, r46. Many people believe that the two other suspects in the case (Kegan Kline and Brian C-whatever) where both a part of a CASM (Child Abuse Sex Material, not child porn since the children had no say in said filming/pics/abuse) sharing ring. Head over to the subreddit Delphi Murders and there are tons of threads that talk about the connections between the suspects and the man arrested today.

I wonder what this guy's deal is. My guess is he drove by the girls at just the right time and fulfilled some sick fantasy?

But he had a weapon(s) so was it planned?

The guy's eyes are dead. And when you look at the photo on the bridge and look at him- Its very chilling.

There is a rumour (and let’s face it we only have rumours right now) that his parents turned him in.

Also a rumour that he checked himself into a mental health facility shortly after the murders.

Another odd thing is that until sometime yesterday the wife had kept her Facebook public but had either scrubbed all photos and posts from 2017 (year of the murders) from her Facebook account or had never posted in 2017 at all. Considering she is a typical flyover state frau who spends too much time posting on Facebook, laughs constantly at things that are not understandable to others on her videos and proudly refers to herself as a redneck, she likely wasn’t smart enough to suspect her husband. But it makes the 2017 absence of posts even more odd.

Yea, thanks, R92. I just read an article. Still something fishy here.

They aren't releasing the charging information which is very very weird. That should be a public document. We don't have secret arrests and secret charges in this country. Once someone's liberty has been taken then the grounds need to be made public. That is for the protection of anyone ever arrested.

So maybe there's an accomplice or he really is just an aider and abettor or a co-conspiracist - that would still get a murder charge - but it could mean he didn't do the actual killings.

by Anonymousreply 95October 31, 2022 5:49 PM

by Anonymousreply 98October 31, 2022 7:01 PM

R97 We don't know but there are some clues from a FBI search warrant.

"'A large amount of blood was lost by the victims at the crime scene,' an FBI search warrant read. It did not note how the girls had been wounded, but noted that there were no signs of a 'struggle or fight.'

The warrant, obtained by Indianapolis FOX59, offered no further information on a murder weapon or cause of death.

Police have never disclosed how the two friends died after being stalked by their killer on a hiking trail, with information on the bloody crime scene offering a gruesome new detail.

Their killer likely got his victims' blood on his clothes, the warrant also revealed, although no-one has ever been charged with the double-homicide.

Indiana State Police said in February they know who killed the girls, but say they have insufficient evidence to make an arrest.

Chillingly, FBI investigators believe the young friends' killer took a souvenir from their corpses to provide a warped memento of his appalling crimes.

The warrant offered no further detail on what the souvenir was, although it did say that 'the rest of (the girls') clothing was recovered,' implying that the killer had taken something they'd been wearing.

And sickeningly, the murderer 'staged' the girls' bodies in a particular way after killing them, although it remains unclear exactly how he did this.

Investigators believe photographs or videos were likely shot of the grotesque set-up to 'memorialize' the crime scene. "

This was a small town in Indiana and I'm sure the police department didn't have a lot of smart, experienced, educated, trained guys and women on their force.

The parents of one of the girls do seem satisfied with how the police performed their jobs.

by Anonymousreply 113November 1, 2022 8:00 AM

He is a registered gun owner with a licence to conceal carry.

The cops searched his house and dug up at least two areas in his backyard, one of them a firepit. This was last week or the week before. There is some talk that he was suspected of theft but nobody has said theft of what or any further details.

The girls jackets were missing from the crime scene. I don't know what else may have been taken from/off of them as "souvenirs" by the murderer.

He didn't grow out that white supremacist looking goatee until after the murders.

The rumor is that Kegan Kline finally gave Richard Allen up as a secondary user on the "Anthony Shots" catfishing account that Libby (and Abby?) were in contact with before the murders. I'm not sure what, if anything, he has to do with the river searching in recent weeks but people seem to think that it's likely.

Witnesses have stated that Allen threatened to beat the shit out of his wife in a local bar when she beat him at pool or something one night. They were regulars at that local bar.

Someone who worked with Allen for several months at CVS said he was a nice enough guy. No weirdness. He's a manager who later became a pharmacy tech so that he could support the pharmacy when the store got busy.

He previously worked at Walmart. After working there for a while (don't know how long) Allen allegedly made inappropriate remarks to young women working there. When they complained he was transferred. He began working at CVS at some time after that.

There is some speculation that his wife may have turned him in. There is also speculation that she covered up for him. So... no idea.

There's a lot of talk about him checking himself into a mental hospital within a week after the murders in 2017 for a 30 day stay. That sounds more like a drunk/drugs issue but nothing has been confirmed.

That's all I can remember from recent rumor mills I've read.

I wonder if this crime was just another stupid gun owner situation. He took his gun out to try to threaten the girls for trespassing and they laughed and called him a creep or disrespected the gun, so he shot one girl without thinking or by misfire, realized he was screwed so then decided to kill both and do weird satanic staging to throw police off.

My belief is that there is a regional CSA ring, one of whom (Kegan Kline?) turned this guy in for a reduction in charges. Having said that, I believe his trial is starting soon so I’m not sure what the outcome of any deal is. I just found it telling that the police asked for more tips at the presser, as if there are more people out there for whom they are looking.

The girls were on the bridge when he told them to go “down the hill” and that is public property so they weren’t trespassing. And FWIW, the person who owns the property where the bodies were found was cleared by police and died last year.

Casually following this case. I think the screen grab at R71 talking about how city folk don't understand how small communities work is true.

People in small towns (mostly) know each other. Everyone knows your business whether you want them to know it or not. There are many vested interests and relationships. These people are usually unable/unwilling to move elsewhere so have to deal with the consequences of accusations, etc. I'm not surprised it's taken this long to make an arrest.

r122, just look up the information released so far on the case of Kegan Kline. Not that you will, because you're only on this thread to scream "frau frau frau" like a lame Rain Man, but still, the info is out there.

Kline was one of the last people to chat with Libby before she was murdered. He had an online persona where he was catfishing underage girls to get photos of them, and there's been some evidence to indicate he allowed others to use those catfishing accounts too, to get access to the underage nudes. When people talk about a "pedo ring" what they mean is the theory that there were numerous local men accessing Kline's CP accounts.

Kline has been in jail for two years for CP charges. He was taken out of prison in August by the police, and we don't officially know why, but it was at the same time there was a police search of the Wabash River.

The theory is that Kline let Richard Allen have access to his CP account, the one that was catfishing Libby and chatting with her, which is how Allen knew Libby and her friend Abby were going to be at the bridge that day. They also theorize that the search of the Wabash and/or a recent interview with Kline caused the police to search Richard Allen's back yard about a month after the river search.

However, some of this comes from leaks about Kline's responses in police interviews where he claimed he had info on the murders, and it's possible Kline was pretending to have information to try to finagle a lesser sentence or something.

If so, that means poor Libby was the victim of two pedos at once: Kline catfishing her online just before she went to the bridge, and then Allen murdering her and Libby while she was at the bridge.

Here are some things that don't make sense yet: Why would someone who has not murdered before suddenly murder in middle age? (Most murderers start in their 20s or early 30s and with less dramatic kills. This being 2 kills at once, in daylight, with staging make it usual and high risk, the sort of kill that a serial killer would do after many, many murders.) If he is a child abuser, why kill 2? Most abusers want only one victim and wouldn't know what to do with 2. Also, if he's an abuser, why kill so quickly? Most of these sickos like to abduct a victim and then abuse them for a while before killing.

What is being debated is this — what are the odds that this offender has killed before? What are the odds that his first time is a double-murder in broad daylight?

This crime seems to be moderately elaborate. There is a fake online persona, a scheduled rendezvous, a double kidnapping in daylight, a camouflaged peep who succeeded in hiding his identity for five years, and then an (allegedly) staged murder scene complete with a set-up for photos/video. Talk about premeditation and planning! So this killer is highly organized, and while we do not know anything about his past, we cannot yet say that this is his first crime as nothing points either way.

As I’m even writing this post, I’m leaning toward there being no way in hell this is his first murder. He also managed to not have a nervous breakdown after the murders, he kept his poker face when the family brought their photos into CVS, pointing toward a cunning killer who is very much in control of himself and his emotions. He is not screaming “beginning offender”.

R161 Have you ever watched any documentaries or read books on serial killers? The ones who get away with it for multiple murders typically kill far from home and/or hide the remains. Bundy abducted victims and hid bodies far away. Also, Night Stalker, Green River Killer, BTK, Zodiac,--impersonal and mostly all kills far from home except in rare cases. The notable exceptions hid the bodies--Gacy and Dahmer killed IN their homes but had turned their homes into "morgues" and kill stations hidden away from public spaces so bodies could be dismembered and hidden--no killing in broad daylight. They carefully hid/destroyed the bodies. See the case studies of almost every famous serial killer ever. If you don't believe me, look these up online or watch some free documentaries on streaming. This research is well know and available everywhere and presented by well known experts in the field.

The girls were killed when Richard Allen was 44 years old. That's late for a serial killer to get started and it seems weird that a double homicide was his first crime. News reports have verified that Allen has no criminal record.

I heard something similar re Allen was suspected for theft and then the police stumbled on the murder stuff. I've also heard that cops have looked at Allen for a couple of years.

I've been a serial killer "enthusiast" since the late 70's/early 80's, far longer than I've been a datalounge enthusiast which has only been for 20-25 years.

Just a guess, but I would think that leaving the tip line open is to bring out any more details people remember about Richard Allen now that he's been identified. It also takes away a potential argument from the defense "You just settled on Allen and never looked for anyone else!"

Allegedly the girls were responding to catfishing account "Anthony Shots" (young, fit, former model who is now a cop in Michigan or somewhere and has no involvement). The account profile was invented by Kegan Kline. Kegan has admitted to police that he was in touch with Libby (the fatter girl) and Abby was the sidekick in this instance.

I'm still not sure that Kegan Kline had no involvement but it may be as an accessory (set up the account, catfishing, maybe photos) with Allen as the actual killer.

by Anonymousreply 188November 2, 2022 5:46 AM

They don't want to taint the jury pool with motive or evidence. Also, leaving the tip line open is a definitively good move because now that they've announced his name and arrest, others might come forward and tell them about things that they may have dismissed (in the way a small town member might) as not of an importance.

Also, it might ferret it out any people that could be peripherally involved (if there were multiple people sharing the Anthony Shotts account).

I will also say that I've been sort of obsessed with serial killers and true crime in general since the early 90s, watched many shows and documentaries, so don't feel like a complete novice on the subject. This crime is not the crime of a first time killer. The assertions that he would "never do this in broad daylight" and would have only "done this far from his home" are not really cut and dried for all serial killers AT ALL. Many killers kill in a 5-10 mile radius of their home, in areas that they are well known to them. In broad daylight is not really a deterrent, especially if the killer knows the area and how well-tread it is, the areas that are maybe off the beaten path. The fact that he POSED the bodies and took trophies speak to both the experience of the killer, as well as the bravado and "I know more than you" attitude many killers embody.

Also, this guy has moved around quite a bit, and I'm sure the investigators are looking into potential crimes in the areas he previously resided. That would also be a reason to keep the tip line open; if you watch any true crime shows, you will see that the arrogance of this crime (2 girls, the level of brutality, the ritualistic nature), it's almost certain that he has killed before, and maybe started out (as many serial killers do) as a peeping tom, potentially abusing or raping victims, then moving on from there. Also, there is a rumor that animal bodies may have been dug up from his property; serial killers also have a propensity for torture and killing of animals. Or it may speak to potential DNA evidence found at the crime scene.

I hope we get more answers in the ensuring investigation and trial. Flame away.

The small town I went to junior high and high school in is the same size as Delphi, also in the Midwest, and I can tell you that I know of five teachers who were pedos, and there's currently two other teachers who are charged right now with more pedo crimes against their students. When I was going to school, the junior high teacher I knew about was eventually caught looking at porn in the classroom and quietly had his teaching license revoked. The high school band teacher and two theater teachers were let go and quietly told to not teach underage kids anymore, so they both moved on to community college teaching. The high school social studies teacher is still there, and was working with the two pedo teachers who have been recently arrested.

Actually arresting the teachers is a HUGE step forward. I doubt they'll be convicted, but just an arrest is a big step forward from what I experienced as a teen in the 1980s and 1990s when I grew up in the Midwest.

So if it turns out that Libby was being catfished by one pedo and murdered by another pedo and the two pedos weren't working together, I wouldn't really be surprised.

You have no idea how bad it is in some areas. If there's been a generational history of just letting people get away with abuse because it's too uncomfortable to deal with (and probably more than a little "well them teen gurls sure is purty" attitude) then there's almost inevitably a huge systemic problem that's never been addressed.

I think r138 asked some good questions, too.

My suspicion is that the guy wasn't expecting Abby to be there, too, that he was just there for Libby, and possibly planned on "just" abusing the girl, then panicked and murdered them because he didn't want to be identified.

by Anonymousreply 203November 2, 2022 10:34 AM

r203 nope.

Posing the bodies and taking trophies is far beyond "panic and murder." It speaks to the nature of this killer. Panic killers have a far more disorganized crime scene.

I can now reveal Dee-Anne Leigh and myself have uncovered some unshakeable truths regarding the evil doings in the Delphi Metro area.

We have strong speculations, the perp met the two teens on the J.O.B. at the CVS, as the two youth victims would visit frequently, spending pocket money on things like Maybelline Eye Shadow°, Twizzlers Brand Candy°, carbonated beverages such as the Mello Yello°, them blue chew penis pills, and other such-like products we will be discussing on our new podcast "True Crime & Box Wine".

Our perp began to friend request the victims on the Snapchat, posing as a supple young Guatemalan boy named Juvetino who had access to Seagrams wine coolers°, which appeal to the teenager girls nowadays.

He then set up a meet and greet on that faithful winters day, so many years ago. RIP. Dee-Anne Leigh,myself, and Dee-Anne Leigh's pug, Pooterlicious, will be on hand later for a lunchtime Q&A, sponsored by the Panaira Bread. God Bless!!

R205

Investigators have long believed the individual in the video participated in the murders.

The girls’ bodies were discovered on property owned by Ron Logan, about 1,400 feet from Logan’s residence. “A large amount of blood was lost by the victims at the crime scene,” according to the search warrant. Because of the amount of blood, investigators believed the perpetrator would have gotten blood on their hands or clothing.

The murderer likely took a souvenir from the crime scene, according to the document, and it “appeared the girls’ bodies were moved and staged.” The redacted search warrant didn’t specify what was missing and noted that the “rest of their clothing was recovered.” There were no signs of a “struggle or fight.”

Moved and staged doesn't mean posed, though. They could mean staged as in trying to hide where they were really killed, or hidden, or something along those lines. The idea that they were posed in some kind of tableaux has taken hold in the discussion threads but I don't think we know enough to say that's definitely what happened.

by Anonymousreply 210November 2, 2022 2:33 PM

Exactly, R210. Authorities have said that the bodies were STAGED, not posed. However, R189's bigger point still stands; both posing and staging would raise red flags about possible previous experience in such crimes.

The cases that get popular on DL these days are the ones where the mentally ill 4chan and Kiwifarms interlopers can really thrive. The PA snow shoveling case was full of people who wrote completely sane and totally normal Melancholy Gay (tm) fanfic, and also got itty bitty erections over the fact that a mouthy woman was murdered. Same with Davey Blackburn and Shannan Watts. They got a different kind of semi-turgidness over the North Dakota mass murders, where they thought it was super sane and also appropriate to contact someone involved in the murders and try to lure him to their homes so they can fuck him.

The only exception to this I can think of is the lesbian who was murdered in an Atlanta park, and that thread started out being flooded with the same 4chan KF types who were sure the murderer was a black man and tried to make political hay out of it, and when that didn't pan out, they abandoned the thread.

You'll notice that the "you're all fraus" guy never shows up in those threads. He only shows up in the threads about crimes that are deemed not important enough by people like r218.

Staged/posed: tell me why you think these verbs are not similar. It means that the killer didn't leave the bodies in the place he originally killed them. Even if it means he dragged them from one place to another, next to each other...staged is the equivalent of posed.

Also, LE has already said he took items from the girls, which equals HE TOOK A TROPHY.

I'm not raging, r225. Why are YOU so angry?

The cops have not definitively said he took trophies. What we know is that the warrant for searching Ron Logan's place included a cop saying she thought that the murderer may have taken a souvenir and she would find something in Logan's home.

That is a FAR cry from saying that the killer absolutely took trophies. Even if we know for certain he took items, we don't know if they were trophies. Could have been because he was getting rid of evidence. We just don't know. Saying that we don't know yet shouldn't make you angry.

We went to Delphi murder suspect Richard Allen’s hometown today and talked with people who’ve know him and his family for decades. They said he was the nicest guy and they can’t believe what he’s being accused of. One man told me if he’s guilty “he should fry.”

"Staged" is like when a murderer tries to make the crime scene (house) appear as if a burglar had done the killing. Hence, pulled-out drawers, etc. In reality, the murderer came in to murder, not to burglarize.

by Anonymousreply 233November 2, 2022 6:09 PM

Just please, people, keep in mind that the FBI agent who said they thought the bodies were "moved and staged" and that a souvenir may have been taken was writing this for the warrant for Ron Logan's home, and Logan turned out to not be involved in the murders. The same agent said Logan was physically able to kill the girls and that his voice was "not inconsistent" with that on the video, because they were making a case for the murderer being Logan, but it wasn't.

These were "possibly" statements in a warrant for a suspect who turned out to not be involved. Let's stop acting like these are absolutes.

Just an Armchair Clarice Starling here, but I think the terms are different.

STAGED: the body is moved/rearranged to give the impression something else happened (or the death took place somewhere new.) A strangled person then hung from the rafters with a kicked over chair has been staged to look like a suicide.

POSED: the body is arranged in such a way as to convey an emotional message. A body that has had its legs unnaturally opened and its hand pointing to a battered grandfather clock has been posed. There is some statement in the posing that means something to the killer. (“Grandpa molested me,” perhaps.) The message could only be subconsciously known to the killer… it doesn’t have to be set out as a blatant clue. They just know the pose gratifies them in some way.

Posing is like symbolism of something else, while staging is trying to actually be something else.

But there’s overlap in language. You could say “the bodies were arranged to form an eternity symbol” when it might be more accurate to state “the bodies were posed to form an eternity symbol.”

Perhaps you got too hung up on that poster's phrasing. No doubt her life has continued over the past five plus years with the Delphi case coming up from time to time and her wondering about it. I've thought about it, wondered about it many times over the past five plus years too and my life hasn't been on hold.

Since they just caught the murderer less than a week ago and it turns out to be the local shift manager at the only drugstore in town who everyone knew, with the usual 'such a nice guy it's shocking" and so on, it's more on people's minds than it would usually be. It stuck in my head that the girls were killed just before Valentine's Day. Normally the date of a murder doesn't stick but this one did. For five plus years I've thought about Delphi and those girls the second week of February.

Delphi is just one of those unsolved cases that everyone knows should be solved but isn't. Like JonBenet Ramsey's murder (all due respect to Mrs Patsy Ramsey, formerly of Boulder, CO). They stick with you for a long time, sometimes for many years.

What a strange statement from the judge.

[quote]Just so the world knows. The Carroll Circuit Court consists of me, Benjamin A. Diener, the judge. My court reporter was hired Friday and began Monday. My bailiff answers the phone, has no experience and no knowledge about legal process. Thankfully, there is a Court Administrator that has experience, but she has duties regarding Carroll Circuit and Carroll Superior Courts. That is it. So. I am begging for some assistance to shield me, the Court, from this storm so that I, the Court, can keep running the Court.

Does the judge have legal basis for keeping the probable cause affidavit sealed? Or is he just caving in to what the prosecutor wants? If he felt secure that the law was on his side, he wouldn't need to be complaining about being short-staffed and overwhelmed.

Of course, law enforcement & the prosecutor would like more evidence to pour in. But by now, if Allen is charged, they should feel that they have enough evidence to convict. (The prosecutor's reason for wanting the PC affidavit sealed, IIRC, was so that more tips could pour in.)

R275, the law about keeping court documents sealed. There's a certain legal criteria for sealing something (keeping it non-public). In general, court documents are public, not sealed.

Is this judge's decision to keep the PC affidavit sealed grounded in the law?

I'm not super familiar about the law about sealing documents, so I don't know. I'm guessing that he's not feeling secure about his decision & there's lots of pressure from the press / media to unseal the PC affidavit.

It would help if they fed the jackals. The press and the public have been waiting for five years. Unless they have other suspects dangling on the line, go ahead and give the press/public the details of this case. Richard Allen is the guy - that's for sure. Throw him to the wolves.

There are reasons for prosecutors to seal otherwise public court documents. Good reasons. This case probably has some good reasons for the prosecutors to do that but the hearing to open those documents (as is usual) has already been scheduled. I forget the date but it's fairly soon. The court is then highly likely to unseal them so I hope the investigators get what they need between now and then.

This case has too much attention to shut everything down and continue to keep everything close to the vest for the cops and sealed for the the prosecutors. That said, if the court keeps the seal on there is some bad craziness going on that we have no clue about it. International child pron and shit like that, it's got to be really awful and they must have good reason to keep it sealed.

Doug Carter did give out thanks to their "International Partners" for their help in his remarks during the quickie press conference officially announcing the arrest on Monday. Maybe it's something to do with their efforts? In that case it could have more to do with Kegan Kline than Richard Allen. There are a lot of pervs in Delphi Indiana.

He has killed before, bet on it. There never was any doubt in my mind about that from the very beginning. Ted Bundy killed two women on same day, but even he never abducted two victims at the same time. He took one victim, tied her up and left her. He then returned to Lake Sam and abducted the second women and killed them both together. This guy has done this before. As far as posing their bodies, it is said that they were posed in such a way as to shock and horrify the investigators . That reminds me of Danny Rollins, The Gainesville Ripper. He posed one of his victims on her back , lying on her bed with her feet and legs touching the floor. He decapitated her and posed her head on a mantle so it appeared she was looking down at her body lying on the bed. Sick, sick motherfucker. He was executed on Florida's death row a few years ago. That wasn't his first time killing either.

They may have been photos FOR the funeral service, copies made from digital files (which Walgreen's does, I assume CVS does too) so they could put physical photos up at the service.

Either way, I'd bet RA kept copies of some of the photos for himself. That may have even been something found at his home during the search.

by Anonymousreply 307November 4, 2022 4:46 PM

Ron Logan was a suspect but he wasn't involved in the case. He died in custody because, while he was a suspect for the murders, it was discovered he'd violated probation, which is how he ended up in jail. My guess is that he lied about an alibi because of probation violations, and the cops mistakenly believed he lied because he was the murderer.

by Anonymousreply 308November 4, 2022 4:47 PM

Personally, I don't think KK was involved at all. I think what happened is that he was catfishing a whole bunch of underage girls and was caught because he'd contacted Libby at some point. From there, cops knew he wasn't the murderer, mostly because he weighs about 200 lbs more than the guy in the video, so they decided his father TK was the most likely suspect. If you read the interrogation notes that were released, you can tell the police were trying hard to get KK to implicate TK, but he never took the bait.

Also, I don't think he would have agreed to meet up with Libby, as some have speculated. The theory is that he set up a meeting with Libby and she brought Abby along with her, and the girls expected to meet the cute guy KK was pretending to be, but RA showed up instead. But KK weighs 400 lbs and doesn't look anything like the cute guy. He's not going to meet up with anyone. Can you imagine if he even tried? I think his grift was strictly online, and he just happened to be catfishing a girl who ended up being murdered.

Also, I suspect the recent drop of some charges against KK reflects the fact that the police had stacked a bunch of charges on him, hoping he'd flip on his father TK, and now that they got RA, they don't need those extra charges anymore.

Final thought: I'm convinced that they accidentally stumbled on RA as a suspect. That's probably why they were so unprepared that they waited a whole weekend before holding the press conference, and why the court was so unprepared, too.

We don't know that he was let out for the river search. I agree that it's likely but the police have not confirmed.

Also, the search was in Peru near the Nickel Plate Trail Bridge, and went west to US-31, which makes it a long way from the bridge in Delphi. It's close to where the Klines live but it's not anywhere near Delphi. It could really have been a coincidence, though I understand a lot of people not only won't even consider that thought, but will get pissy and angry if you suggest it.

Rhonda Ruth maintains theirs no way a one-armed pasty brit could've pulled this off, but as usual my brill Hubs, Bohannon, that Rick Allen has been pounding those drums with his one arm for so dang long, those muscles are like iron straps, and he could've easily propositioned the crime scene.

Crystal Jo is funny and I'm a true crime geek of many years standing. I was interested in it for many years before Datalounge, way before Reddit, since back in the 70's/80's when Ted was getting his freak on and serial murder seemed to be exploding in America. Then it turned into bad tv shows and became it's own bad writing jandra and I lost interest.

Now I'm sort of interested again but I keep my distance. I've teased the websleuths and reddit ladies because they can be so fucking annoying sometimes but I'm not the "Crystal Jo" guy. The annoyance comes from the "tots and pears" and "those poor precious babies" shit that comes around here sometimes. Pastor Davey is one thing, he was a lot of fun. "Poor precious angels" is right out - Muriel should put a ban on the phrase. I don't fault the ladies for their interest in true crime, it's the delivery style that doesn't work here.

I don't know what to make of Kegan Kline anymore. His catfishing account and Richard Allen "just happening by" at the place where the girls were supposed to meet Kline that day is too "coincidental" for me to believe it's coincidental at all. It may be but I have a hard time believing it.

I also have a hard time buying that the cops "accidentally stumbled" on Richard Allen over some stolen tools and he just happened to be the guy they've been looking for over the past five years. Especially with recent Wabash River searching and, presumably, finding.

My totally uninformed speculation is that Kline routinely sold his catfishing pictures to other pervs online to make some money. Some things found in the Wabash River searching may have been Kline's old phones or hard drives that he ditched there. I don't even know if it's possible to get anything out of technology so waterlogged but it may be, at least bits and pieces. That could account for "international partners" who found guys that "shopped" online for pron with Kline. One of the "shoppers" may have been Richard Allen and he was too close to ignore. It's possible the cops used some old "I think my cunt neighbor Richard Allen stole tools out of my garage" allegation/complaint to check Allen out and it turns out that he's their fucking monster.

How Allen knew the girls were supposedly meeting with Kegan Kline that day in Delphi I have no idea but, again, it's too "coincidental" for me.

The man LE have arrested is a local man who lives 5 minutes away. It's more likely that he came across them and took the opportunity.

by Anonymousreply 351November 5, 2022 3:31 PM

Couple things that are kind of odd about this. If I'm getting it right (my sources are a handful of posts from the reddit/websleuths fraus). 1. He is charged with two counts of FELONY murder. i.e. he's guilty of murder because someone died when he was committing a felony. If he was a serial killer type who killed them intentionally for his gratification, you'd expect it to just be plain old murder. Some of the frauen think this means he had an accomplice. Or rather, he WAS the accomplice, guilty of some other felony with a partner (eg kidnapping the girls) but not stabbing them himself. 2. The probable cause affadavit is sealed. Apparently this is unusual in a case like this? I'm not a lawyer. One line is speculation again is that someone else is involved and they don't want to reveal too much info before they have to, maybe because they're still trying to sort out their case against the other person. Most likely partner in crime would be that Kegan Kline who was catfishing them. i'm not a QAnon person who thinks everyone is a pedo networking with other pedos but I'm sure some of them communicate with each other and share photos etc. Maybe they were working together? Maybe Kline asked Allen to meet them at the bridge and tell them he was going to take them to the cute young guy they'd been chatting with? Surely Kline could play that role himself, but I guess the only real point of this theory is that there must be someone else involved and he's the most plausible. Or at least it seems that way. But one problem is that you'd expect KK to sell RA out immediately when he went to jail...maybe there's actually yet another creepazoid involved here.

I take that back. I mean Kline wasn't arrested for murder, so he's not going to say "yeah but Richard Allen was involved in killing them too!" He would just keep as quiet as possible and hope he's not charged with anything beyond the CP etc.

by Anonymousreply 353November 5, 2022 4:03 PM

There isn't any indication that Kline was going to meet anyone in person.

The police were trying to get Kline to say that he was going to meet her, but they knew he wasn't the one who murdered them. He couldn't possibly have been Bridge Guy, because Bridge Guy does not weigh 450 lbs. So they were fishing for information.

If the police had an actual message from Kline to Libby about meeting at the bridge, they wouldn't have needed to keep questioning Kline about it. They would have KNOWN that a meeting had been set up. However, they very obviously did not know. They suspected, but they didn't have any proof, which is why they interrogated him.

Also, logistically, it doesn't make any sense. Kline doesn't look like the photos he used and he would scare ANY girl off the second they saw him, especially if they were expecting the hot ripped college boy they saw in photos. Once they ran, what was he going to do about it? Chase after them?

The cops were not subtle at all about trying to nail Kline for accessory to murder, and his own dad for murder. Kline would have given up Allen years ago if he knew Allen was involved. Any halfway decent attorney would have helped him get a plea deal for the info AND he would be saving his own hide and his father's from a potential murder conviction.

There is no scenario that explains Kline sitting in jail for two years and not telling the cops about Allen.

by Anonymousreply 355November 5, 2022 4:07 PM

R352 Felony murder is charged when “killing someone while doing/attempting to do one of the following actions: kidnapping, rape, human trafficking, etc.”

Bridge Guy clearly was moving the girls from one area to another which I would guess comes under the legal definition of kidnapping at least.

by Anonymousreply 356November 5, 2022 4:19 PM

^^^ What I mean by that is given the video, it's easier for cops to prove that Bridge Guy was trying to kidnap them. Easier than proving premeditated intent to murder. Just guessing. I am not a lawyer either!

I don’t buy that Richard Allen just happened upon them at the bridge carrying his gun and a large knife and decided to kidnap them on the spur of the moment. I thought Kegan HAD arranged to meet Libby at the bridge? It was in a transcript of him talking to another girl online.

R367 So why can't you provide a source confirming it? Again, it's a good hypothesis given that there was a lot of blood loss at the scene but I don't state my opinions as fact until it has been confirmed. That's what sucks about Redditors and leads to cases like the suicide of Sunil Tripathi.

[quote]In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, Tripathi was one of several people misidentified as a suspect by users on social media. On April 16, 2013, one day after the bombings, Reddit users created a subreddit with the intention of consolidating the information surrounding the events of the bombings in an attempt to identify the culprits of the attack.[4] By Wednesday, April 17, over 3000 people had joined the subreddit in order to crowdsource the investigation of the evidence.[5] At 5:00 p.m. on April 18, the Federal Bureau of Investigation published photos of the suspects believed to be involved in the bombings.[6] Soon after, another Redditor named Sunil as a plausible suspect after asserting a resemblance between the suspects in the FBI's pictures and Sunil, who had gone missing a month before the bombings. Although this behavior violated the subreddit's rule that prohibited naming suspects without evidence, the moderators did not delete the post. To further the speculation behind Tripathi, a woman claiming to be his classmate tweeted that she too thought Tripathi resembled a suspect in the FBI's photographs.[7] Soon after the release of the photos, people began trying to contact the Tripathi family, through phone calls on ABC News, as well as angry messages on Tripathi's Facebook page, dedicated to finding Sunil.[8] At 11 p.m. on the same day, the real bombing suspects (Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev) shot and killed a police officer of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Police Department.[9] The following day at 2:45 a.m., a redditor tweeted: "BPD has identified the names: Suspect 1: Mike Mulugeta. Suspect 2: Sunil Tripathi."[10] This caught the mainstream media's attention after BuzzFeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski shared a tweet that named Sunil as the primary suspect from his personal Twitter account.[10] According to the BBC, Tripathi had soon become the "standout suspect" on social media before the FBI identified the real suspects to be the Tsarnaev brothers.[11] Sunil was found dead on April 23.

Armchair detectives need to stick to what has been confirmed and keep an open mind about everything else. It's okay to speculate but stop stating unconfirmed things as fact. Rumors are not fact as well because as the case above proves people really do make things up online.

by Anonymousreply 369November 6, 2022 12:33 AM

The reasons why this case held my interest more than most other unsolved crimes are first off The sheer wtf of the crime and footage and nobody getting caught. I live in a city where murder is fairly common but nothing like this. They have audio and video of the killer in a town of a little more than 1000 and nobody can figure out who it is?!? It just seemed so strange. The second reason is that Abby looks just like my sister did at 11 so it just got to me. It doesn’t automatically make someone a dumb frau to follow this case.

by Anonymousreply 370November 6, 2022 12:41 AM

I tried to read the transcript of Kline's interrogation, but it was difficult to follow. From what I gather, Kline was pretending to be a 13 year old girl, named "Emily Anne", in order to exchange child pornography with other miscreants, via Dropbox, while thinking he wouldn't get caught?

There was also discussion of lie detector tests, that he reputedly failed, so... these missives seem to point toward the fact, that he knows exactly who killed these 2 girls, but wasn't gonna give him up, due to his complicity.. is that close to the real truth of the case? I have no idea, and don't want to bicker with fat-ass websleuth yoga moms, but... is that what it's being boiled down to???

I'm not dumb, either. And it really got to me. My son was 8 when it happened and I put my life on hold and now he's in middle school, pretty much raised himself while I worked tirelessly online to bust this case wide open.

The thing that got to me was that the killer said DOWN THE HILL and as someone who sometimes walks down small hills, I cannot help but hear that voice every time I start a descent down a hill.

OK, so I read the 2nd half of the Kline interview (not the first half, it was just too long and I wanted to scrub myself after reading half of it to be honest).

The interviewer said at one point that they didn't think Kline killed the girls but they were clearly angling to try to get Kline to admit to someone else having access to his phone or having told someone about Libby. Kline swore not.

In the end it seemed clear that the investigators clearly don't have any direct evidence linking Kline or the account to anyone else who could be a suspect other than his father so I am still skeptical that Kline and his catfishing account is the link. However, who knows.

Kline failed polygraph tests but if you look it up, being anxious can make an innocent person fail them and Kline stresses how anxious he was. That's why polygraph tests are controversial and not admissible as evidence in quite a few places. The serial killer Gary Ridgway passed polygraph tests so they can be fooled too.

Kline obviously contradicted himself when he says that he didn't speak to Libby but they have evidence that someone with access to his phone did. However, he was sending the same messages to 40-50 women at the same time. It appears that he was spamming and trolling as many kids/women as he could to get nudes out of them. And you could pretty much easily lose track in such a case.

The looking up info about the case, DNA and so on, I don't really take seriously because most of us probably have done that out of sheer curiosity. If he had had a tenuous connection with her, that makes it more likely.

I read the whole thing, though I will not lie, my mind drifted multiple times, it is indeed a tedious and difficult doc to read, between the formatting issues, subject matter, and then the back-and-forthing with the cops arguing with him about what he remembered and didn’t, blahblahblah. R402, I was left feeling that he was completely lying, that the cops told him repeatedly that what he was saying isn’t possible **unless** he admits the account is shared. I thought it was a really strange interview because I didn’t fully understand the goal of the investigators. It felt like the purpose of the interview had to do with another case, like they needed KK to verify certain facts to move something else forward.

What I find to be incredulous is this — that Libby had contact with two, I repeat, two!!!! Sex predators on the same day, two predators who had zero connection to each other? Do we all agree upon that fact? I think enough information is out there that it has been verified that KK contacted her the day she disappeared prior to their walk on the railroad, and then they also had contact with RA who has been charged with her murder. If that is a confirmed fact, how is that even possible that they are unrelated? It seems like winning the lottery, could lightening straight twice in the same day, same place, same victim?

Reading the interview of KK left me more confused because it seemed like the cops know he is lying, but are unable to get more info out of him. I would love for a few more people to read it to get a variety of opinions because it was a tough read.

The transcript hasn't convinced me of anything.

You can see them asking compound questions and taking an answer to part of the question and acting like it was an answer to the other part - the part they wanted that answer for.

That's a typical interrogation trick. When they'd pull that on my client, I'd stop them and make then ask each part separately and make it clear which answer was for which part of the question. If they didn't knock it off with that kind of questioning, I'd end the interrogation right there. People are so imprecise with their language that it's easy to get answers that can fit any agenda you want.

Personally, I don't think the cops would have been asking Kline repeatedly whether he spoke with Libby or not if they actually had proof that he did. They spend all that time telling him "we know you talked with her," but never offer up evidence, they say he admitted it before, but never say they have those messages. The messages they say they do have are ones Kline says he sent to every girl he was catfishing, the Ferrari messages and "I'm so into you" stuff. And every time the cops say "you said/sent this to Libby" he'd say "okay" but follow up with "but I sent that to every girl I talked to."

In the transcript the bit about Libby starts about page 125, and the police say "we know you lied, you talked to Libby and also exchanged photos." Kline says he has no memory of talking to Libby but just to a friend of hers during a sleepover. The stuff he supposedly said to some of Libby's friends after the murder, "OMG I was supposed to meet her but she never showed up," he says "I probably said that but it was a lie, I never planned to meet with anyone." The cops don't seem to believe him and think he's protecting someone.

The police tell him that "regardless of what you say" there was a second person using his phone, and that they know he's lying about not being sure if roommates or friends had gotten on his phone or not.

The only people mentioned in the transcript would be his friend who sold him weed, a roommate, his dad, and whoever the cops were looking at on Country Club Road. There's a long discussion about how his phone on a certain day connected to wifi at an address of someone on Country Club Road, and they're telling him "you know someone out there" and he absolutely insists that he does not. They're saying "yes, you know who that is, you're trying to protect him and we can't understand why." They then tell him they know he knows who killed the girls.

It is speculated that it was his dad's cousin, but we don't know for sure. No one seems to have found any link between Richard Allen and the cousin or the Country Club Road address in the transcript, or the Klines, or anything.

I think it's highly plausible that the police don't actually have evidence of a direct interaction between Kline and Libby. In the transcript, the cops mention a couple of times when, in previous questioning, they'd shown Kline evidence, but they never show him the actual messages they claim they have between him and Libby just before she was murdered.

I'd bet that Kline was trying to catfish a lot of girls that age in the area, Libby was peripherally but not directly in that group of girls, and that they didn't talk to each other just before the girls were murdered at all.

"Staged" would be to fake out the cops as to where and how. JBR's body in the basement was staged. Capt. Jeffrey McDonald's placing his pajama top over Colette was staging.

"Posed" connotes a desire to shock the discoverer, often with the victim(s) positioned sexually as the Boston Strangler did, or "helpfully" as John List did with his entire family laid next to each other. In this Richard Allen case, perhaps it was to take photos.

Travis Trexler, a cousin of alleged Snapchat catfish and child predator Kegan Kline, was arrested in Wabash County, Indiana, at the beginning of September on DUI charges, The U.S. Sun can exclusively reveal. Kegan Kline was contacting Libby German through a catfish social media account the night before she was murdered

Trexler was held in custody for a week in place of a $1,200 bond.

He was released on September 8, court records show.

A spokesperson for the Wabash County Jail declined to provide additional information when contacted by The U.S. Sun but said the arrest was unrelated to the probe into the Delphi probe — the site of a 2017 double murder to which Trexler’s cousin, but not Trexler himself, has been linked by prosecutors.

An attorney listed for Trexler has not yet responded to a request for comment. Trexler has prior DUI infractions

**************

Travis is hideous, sad and unfuckable. Our verdict - Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! (of something)

Please note: The cunting Sun Newspaper does not allow me to link a photo, I have to link the article. They are obviously a bunch of FAT WHORES.

Will also chime in as another poster who knew of “the real deal” through a Yale connection. This person could provide details so accurate that it stunned individuals (and really freaked some out). Very helpful with missing persons, etc. But the psychic preferred to stay under the radar and had to be cajoled and encouraged to assist. It was not in their nature (to be “psychic”h) and stated that they, themselves, would be highly skeptical if they weren’t the one coming up with everything. Was a challenge for them.

There are people who genuinely believe they are psychic and there are people who know damn well they aren't psychic but they also know it's a great way to get money out of the rubes.

But there is exactly zero evidence that psychics exist, and the burden of proof is of course upon them, since they are the ones making outlandish claims. For fifty+ years, law enforcement and government agencies did numerous studies and trials and experiments because they REALLY wanted psychic abilities to be a thing so they could use those powers for their own ends. Again and again, the results were negative.

People who still believe in psychics in 2022 will believe anything.

This YT vid gives the best explanation regarding the Keegan Kline and Richard Allen connection.

What if Keegan sol Allen a pre loaded burner phone, that was being specifically sold from pedo to pedo, with a bunch of under aged contacts on the phone itself?

That makes sense to me.

Or, Richard Allen monitored the social media of one of the girls, and made a second account pretending to be Anthony Shotts, and then started catfishing the minor, claiming he was using two accounts. This is my personal theory.

I don’t believe either Kline or Allen knew each other at all, nor made any contact with one another before this case of after.

Upthread posters mention a photo of Allen’s daughter on the High Bridge.

Just to be clear: it’s most likely part of a senior photo shoot taken 8/2013. Daughter graduated HS in 5/2014. Murders happened 2/2017.

Mom most likely used one of the senior photos in a 2018? FB post because it’s a nice photo and it was in her Photos library. Daughter had long gone onto college in another town.

R470 correct but perhaps when mom was judiciously removing ALL of her 2017 pictures from her public Facebook page, it might have crossed her mind that that picture of her daughter on the bridge might not be a good look anymore and removed that too. In fact since Mom seems hell bent on keeping her Facebook public, perhaps in order to protect her daughter from media and rabid crime sleuths, it might be better idea to remove her daughter’s pictures entirely. At the very least, mom seems like a useless self absorbed and not to bright Facebook frau.

My guess is that mom thinks removing her Facebook pictures or going private will make them look guilty. It may also be some weird attempt at normalcy.

There's a guy I went to high school who became a teacher and just got thrown in jail for molesting some of his students, and when he bailed out, all he did was make his most recent FB posts private. He's still updating, you can see him change his profile pic and header. The old posts are still up and full of "you're a pig, Mr. ----" comments and he won't take it down. Stubborn.

Investigators have known for years that the Delphi suspect was on the Monon High Bridge the day Abby and Libby were killed

by: Ashley FowlerPosted: Nov 14, 2022 / 02:00 PM EST / Updated: Nov 14, 2022 / 09:20 PM EST

DELPHI, Ind. (WISH) — Richard Allen, the man arrested in the 2017 double murder of Abigail Williams and Liberty German near Delphi, told a state conservation officer he was in the area on the day of the killings, but his report may have been considered unfounded, a police source tells I-Team 8.

Allen, a 50-year-old resident of Delphi, went to the conservation officer right after the teens’ murders on Feb. 13, 2017, and said he was on the Monon High Bridge that afternoon but didn’t see the two girls, the source says.

Williams and German were dropped off near the bridge on the day of the murders. Their bodies were found the next day.

Allen’s statement was forgotten until recently when Indiana State Police became frustrated with the status of the Delphi investigation and asked a group of investigators to look over files related to the case.

Investigators believe Allen is the man on the bridge in the cellphone video and in sketches released by police, the source tells I-Team 8.

say, Andrew Joseph Baldwin from a Franklin, Indiana, law firm and Bradley Anthony Rozzi of Logansport was added as attorneys for Allen. Rozzi will be the lead attorney, and Baldwin of Franklin will be co-counsel.

Although Allen was arrested, the probable cause affidavit is sealed. A hearing set for Nov. 22 will determine if the document will be made public.

The latest article posted at r491 makes it pretty clear that Kline isn't involved in the murders at all. The Wabash River search was related to the murders but nothing was found and they think Kline was just lying to investigators about it. After that, the police went back to square one with the case and saw the statement from Allen and started looking into it. Nothing about Kline or the Wabash River search led them to Allen.

Just wanted to point that out since someone was screaming at me a few days ago about how Kline had to be involved and anyone who said otherwise was stupid and wrong and also stupid.

[quote]The police source also confirms that the recent five-week state police search of the Wabash River in Peru was connected to the Delphi investigation.

[quote]It was initiated after Kegan Kline told police they would find a cell phone and weapon in the river, the source tells I-Team 8.

Maybe so r494 and I am not the person you said was yelling at you. But, it doesn’t mean the catfish profile wasn’t shared. The Anthony shots profile made arrangements to meet the girls at the bridge that afternoon. Somehow (and I doubt it was random) this Richard Allen is there at the same time and essentially kidnaps and kills them within a very tight timeline. I some interrogation interviews police question Kline hard about the catfish profile being accessed by someone else - a different device- in the last communications with Libby. Right after Allen’s arrest some of klines charges were dropped which may or may not be because of a deal. . I agree he wasn’t on the bridge that day but we don’t have enough info yet to say for certain that he had no involvement at all. Particularly if there is a larger ring being investigated, which is why many believe that there is so much being kept private.

I will say congrats to the Indiana state police who pushed into things sensing the local guys had missed something.

If you read the 194-page interview with Kline, Kline asks why after 3 years they are hauling him in again when there was nothing after that first interview. The detective says because they been investigating the largest Child Porn ring in the state of Indiana in the state's history, that is why it took so long. It will be weird if it turns out to have nothing to do with the murders, but I suppose it's possible.

It may be that the police were so certain that there was a connection because Libby was found without her clothes and with her body staged. They may have laser focused on the CSAM so that they didn't bother with Allen, as they may not have found a connection between him and the Klines.

This stuff is so funny because it's the exact mistake old school detectives used to make (and maybe still did in this case). They would have a theory/'instinct' that someone had done it and they would zoom onto that at the expense of everything else. They would refuse to consider other possibilities and close their minds. They would lack objectivity about the actual evidence they did or did not have. It has caused many, many examples of wrongful convictions.

by Anonymousreply 523November 16, 2022 3:33 PM

The charging documents that would explain to the public why Allen was arrested are currently under seal due to an order signed off by a judge at the request of Carroll County Prosecutor Nick McLeland. A hearing is set for November 22nd to determine if those documents will remain sealed or be made available to news media and the public.

At this point, Superintendent Carter believes releasing the documents would not jeopardize the case.

WIBC host Jason Hammer asked, “if that is allowed to be given to the public, is that going to compromise the case in any way?”

“No, I don’t think at this point it will,” responds Carter, “and I think it will answer a lot of the questions that people have.

“Will we find out how we got to this point with that information?” asks Hammer.

“We will, yeah. It’ll be much clearer,” responds Carter.

Hopefully it gets released. I don’t recall many cases in the US where high profile investigations like this fall under these seals. It’s happened a few times where I come from, and in the two situations I recall somewhat recently, once the publication bans were lifted or journalists take the police to court over freedom of information laws, there ended up being a huge element of police bungling or bad plea deal negotiations that come to light. Not saying that will be the case for sure here but, I guess we will see. And if it all does come out it will be interesting to see how much “leaked” info was actually true.

Sometimes that is a future date agreed upon by the defense and the prosecution. Unless there are changed circumstances presently there are no grounds for another bond consideration hearing. Maybe the future hearing is a combined Status/Bond Review hearing. The media rarely understands or reports procedural matters accurately.

I didn’t realize before that the bodies were taken to and staged a fair distance from where the police think they were killed. He didn’t exactly slash and run. What a cold boooded psychopath.

He managed to carry out this entire crime in broad daylight with others hiking around the same area. No one even heard screams.

If their mouths were duct taped, screaming wouldn’t have helped those girls.

We’ve got to do more in this country to prepare girls on how to fight back. Self-defense. These were two kids, nothing that happened is their fault, but can you imagine if the victims understood that the worst thing you can do is let them move you. Once they move you to a different location, the odds of a violent rape anc murder go up ten-fold (if memory serves). Like what if on the bridge one of them just ran as fast as possible??? What would he have done??? You

I still think it very unlikely. If they had evidence linking Kline and Allen they'd have arrested Allen long ago. Please remember that many cops aren't that bright and often are subject to the same cognitive biases as the general public.

While I think it probable that they've got the right guy now I'm not feeling good about the evidence that they have against him. His lawyer said that there was a lot less than you'd expect.. I may be wrong but I'm kind of braced for this to be a controversial case or there to *potentially* not to be overwhelming evidence for jurors.

by Anonymousreply 551November 23, 2022 12:36 PM

His lawyer's comment could have more than one sense. In one sense, it could mean, there seems to be little evidence and the so-called case is skimpy. In another sense it could mean, the prosecution is holding back in order to thwart discovery as long as possible. A PC affidavit doesn't have to give complete pre-trial discovery. But the prosecution may have skimped on it to deprive the accused as long possible, of information usable to assemble a defense. The defense lawyers may be on to that and trying to make lemonade out of it.

by Anonymousreply 552November 23, 2022 12:57 PM

The fact that they've stressed that the case is still open and they want to keep getting tips and info adds to it for me. That they're hoping that making him as a suspect public will get them more information.

But it's always best to wait to see what they actually have, of course.

If they think a second person is involved then yeah, they do have to offer up that evidence to the defense, and soon, I would imagine. The prosecutor wouldn't have brought it up if they didn't expect defense attorneys to ask for the evidence immediately.

by Anonymousreply 556November 23, 2022 1:16 PM

Perhaps I am incorrect. I know the river was crossed but maybe they were still alive when it happened. Does anyone know the distance between where they were thought to be killed vs where the staging happened? If staging is meant to throw police off it had to be more than a few feet away wouldn’t it?

As some of us have been ragging about, it sounds like the prosecution has declared they believe that Richard Allen did not act alone.

My theory. Kevin Kline, pasty POS, had the Anthony_shots account that he shared with multiple people, including his own nasty father, sooooo foul. He would share his “hot leads” with this small circle of disgusting perverts, we don’t know how many men used this account.

So he sat silent for maybe 18 months that he passed on these girls to RA because that implicated him in their murder too, and there is a high degree of probability he could go down with RA. So I think he likely at first had zero conscience about withholding this info as he doesn’t want more charges, but then later he realizes with the right attorney he can leverage this information to protect himself if he plays his cards right. So I believe he cut a deal in exchange for partial testimony on these murders.

Well the question after reading the pdf of the affidavit is even bigger than before:

HOW DID THEY MISS THIS GUY FOR ALMOST 6 YEARS????

He said he was there at the exact time. But no further look into him.

Witnesses identified him as the only male around at that time.

They had video of a vehicle parked strangely at the abandoned building that matched his.

They had a bullet at the scene where bodies were found and could have asked him then if he had a gun.

A witness described a man covered in mud and blood that looked like he’d been in a fight walking away from the park.

Since we know Indiana star police went back over everything and came up with this guy recently, the entire Delphi police force should be fired and some should be investigated for potentially helping him avoid being looked at as a suspect. Probably someone’s drinking buddy. Should have had him within the month.

by Anonymousreply 567November 30, 2022 4:00 AM

I thought it was described as "mud or blood" - which would make sense since the witness probably wasn't that close to him.

The forensic science of the test they used to allege the bullet came from his gun is very challengeable. There will be experts who will proffer a debunking of it. But it's enough for the low threshold of probable cause.

What does it mean to park strangely?

Just throwing out things off the top of my head. It seems like it's him but who knows if they can make the case if he gets a good attorney. Though I wouldn't want to be tried in that area. I was assuming that the other person possibly involved may have been an accessory after the crime but I'm just guessing.

I am still perplexed why they aren't releasing the cause of death. That strikes me as very strange. It must be redacted because the judge should have needed it to find probable cause.

This is all so strange. What could seem safer than a daytime hike along a well-traveled local landmark where anyone could appear at any time and they were with each other and had a cell phone. So very sad.

by Anonymousreply 575November 30, 2022 5:07 AM

I agree Kline may have been offering out the Anthony shots account but that’s going to be hard to prove. Especially as it seems Allen was using burner phones based on the affidavit.

It wil be interesting to see if some of the ghoulish sleuthing on YouTube was correct about the area where the bodies were found. Their description of. “Leaks” from LE and searchers suggested a lot of items were displayed etc around their bodies.

But just the possibility of moving those bodies after death over rough wooded areas and possibly over water to where they were staged might also suggest there was a second person on scene.

I don’t think I believe any of that though. I think the second person has more to do with how the girls were set up to meet someone at the bridge. Then I think Allen acted all alone inna rage for whatever reason. Supposedly Libby was in much worse shape than Abby. And Libby was the one talking to the Anthony Shots account

by Anonymousreply 579November 30, 2022 5:37 AM

R564 My hunch is that cops have got tunnel vision about that Anthony Shots guy and are trying to make him involved (I still doubt that he was - it's a lot more likely that Allen acted alone). Or they simply need more evidence than what they have to convince a jury of Allen's guilt which is highly plausible. Like, okay, he was in the area on that day but a jury is going to need something more solid than that to convict.

Ok, I'll offer why his wife didn't know:

- unfamiliar clothes - bulky clothes hiding his face, body etc - he's walking across dilapidated railroad ties 60 feet above a creek, not a normal gait - his friends or other people would have recognized him

And finally: Nobody would consider their spouse would murder 2 girls. You can call it denial but I think it's before that stage -- it hasn't reached the possibility not in reaction to your spouse being accused.

What little I hear of him, he doesn't sound like the video. Don't get me wring: he did it. I'm just making the arguments why someone wouldn't suspect someone they know

They did clear him eventually but still…. The other one was that kegan Kline and Anthony shots thing and his dad being involved with CP. but it does still seem they had blinders on by missing the dude that actually put himself at the scene of the crime.
