DELPHI, INDIANA: Prosecutors pointed out on Tuesday, November 22, that an Indiana man Richard Matthew Allen, 50, accused of killing two teenage girls in the infamous Delphi murder case may not have acted alone. Allen, a CVS employee, was suddenly accused this month, more than five years after the murders of 14-year-old Libby German and 13-year-old Abby Williams which shocked the community in Delphi.

However, Allens's defense has pushed for the sealed evidence and stated that he is innocent. "He is innocent. He has told us that very emotionally," lead defense attorney Andrew Baldwin representing Allen said after the hearing. He further said that his team was "not impressed" with the lack of evidence in the document. "You're gonna read that probable cause affidavit, online or wherever they get it, and hopefully that's gonna ring a bell for somebody to help us out because he is innocent. He has told us that very emotionally," the report added quoting the defense attorney, Baldwin. The prosecutors have signaled more than one crime suspect in the case by stating that Allen may not have acted alone, "We believe Richard Allen is not the only actor involved in this," Carroll County Prosecutor Nicholas McLeland said, as per WTHR.

Baldwin replied to the prosecutor's statement by saying, "I mean, that's new news." When asked if that was reflected in the probable cause affidavit, Baldwin replied, "not the PCA that I read." Baldwin said Allen and his family have been "tremendously" impacted by his arrest. "His wife is just a wonderful person, and she loves her husband. They've been married for over 30 years. They were basically high school sweethearts. They love each other, and she fully supports him," Baldwin said. "But it is devastating. She's scared. She doesn't want to leave her house," he reiterated by stating, "Our client's the wrong guy."

Police and investigative agencies haven't revealed much of the details about the infamous Delphi murders, and how the teenagers were killed claiming that it was to protect the information and as per some legal experts developing the case and charging other suspects. German and Williams disappeared on February 13, 2018 while on a hike on the Monon High Bridge Trail in Delphi. They didn’t show up at a pickup location and were found dead the next day in a rugged area off the trail, reported the New York Post.

Another "pedo" catfisher Kegan Kline, a 28-year-old who was accused of catfishing the Delphi murders had been reported cooperating with authorities and probably nailing Allen in the case to secure a plea deal in his own charges.
