A newly-released memorandum in the Delphi, Indiana, double murder case suggests that a group of white nationalists are responsible for the 2017 deaths of Liberty German and Abigail Williams.
Richard Allen, 50, who stands accused of killing the girls while they were hiking at the Monon High Bridge in Delphi, is asking the judge to throw out evidence from the search of his home, arguing the warrant omitted key information about the possible Odinism connection.
Court documents obtained by The Docket indicated that a memorandum submitted to the court by Allen’s lawyers Monday alleges that the 2022 search of Allen’s home was unlawful, since investigators did not disclose that “members of a pagan Norse religion, called Odinism, hijacked by white nationalists, ritualistically sacrificed Abigail Williams and Liberty German.”
As CrimeOnline reported, the Delphi Double Homicide Task Force took Allen into custody on October 28, 2022, at his home in Delphi, for the murders of Abigail, 13, and Libby, 14.
The victims were found murdered near the Monon High Bridge on February 14, 2017, after taking an outing to the bridge the day prior. The outing was only meant for a few hours, and when the girls failed to return, family members contacted police.
Following his arrest, investigators searched Allen’s residence and found:
- A .40 caliber pistol
- Additional firearms
The Indiana State Police Laboratory examined a bullet found at the crime scene and ultimately determined that it came from a gun registered to Allen, and “forensically determined” that the bullet cycled through his gun.
Allen claimed he never let anyone else use his gun, but he had no explanation when told a bullet from his firearm was found at the crime scene.
